Ubuntu 10.04 with ATI Radeon HD3650

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

As I have pointed out in an earlier post titled: Ubuntu 9.10 works with ATI Radeon HD3650. I have tested the new Ubuntu 10.04 Alpha 1 with the drivers for the ATI Radeon HD3650 and it doesn’t work but that is not a surprise as it is an Alpha. There should be more coming out about this as later releases come out.

Thanks for reading,
