dansan, is there any more detailed info available ? All I found in the thread was "I googled that the problem is that the graphics driver does not support texture compression used by old models.".
I'm not aware of us dropping any old extensions but the 10.5 and higher drivers merged in GL3.3 and GL4 support so it's possible that something required for a new GL extension is subtly altering the behavior of an existing extension, not sure.
I tried following all of the abbreviations but the people posting in the thread are obviously much more familiar with all the games and variants than I am
It doesn't work for me. I've been trying since 9.8, but it just wont work. It installs fine, but when I reboot the pc it hangs on the "Ubuntu" pink screen, and nothing happens.
I dont know whats happening, really, lost all the faith.
My pc is running with a Radeon 4890 from powercolor, motherboard is an Asus M2NPV-VM, 2Gb of Ram, AMD X2 4200.
Welcome to nforce430 chipset owner club There like 2 possible fixes.
1. Buy motherboard with another chipset even newer nforce chipsets work well, driver only don't work with nforce430 (great job amd )
2. Use windows and latest cat drivers.
Pray that amd will fix it in 10.7
