ATI Radeon HD 3650 under Jaunty

June 2, 2009

This entry is more a note to myself than a post for others. I just installed Kubuntu Jaunty on my Desktop. It was not easy. I think it is the first time in years that a Kubuntu install (Desktop CD version) was not abled to get anything than blank screen instead of the install mananger. I’ve a Radeon HD 3650 in this machine. What I did to solve this was to downloaded the alternative CD version and install it. Surely it booted also in a blank screeen but I was able to switch to the console with ALT-CRTL-F1. I installed than the openssh server which I used to follow this howto to install the ATI own drivers. After this all works again. Maybe this post helps also someone else except me.
