Linux Mint vs. Radeon 6490 vs. CounterStrike 1.6
Hello guys,

i have one crucial problem in CS game. My fps is dropping so much, sometimes to 30 or lower, when i am alone on the map, there is 100 but, when round restarts and more players are on the map, it is dropping.

Is it caused by driver, or what?

I have vsync turned off in game and in driver catalyst.

Thanks for reply

I would reinstall them. They should show as 13 something in CCC under Information -> Driver Packaging Version and not as 9.01 (which are the actual Prop. Drivers you get when just enabling them in additional Drivers):

sudo sh /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh
sudo apt-get remove --purge fglrx fglrx_* fglrx-amdcccle* fglrx-dev* xorg-driver-fglrx
#If those produce any error ignore it

sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs fakeroot dh-make debhelper debconf libstdc++6 dkms libqtgui4 wget execstack libelfg0 dh-modaliases
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-multiarch i386 lib32gcc1 libc6-i386

#go to directory the downloaded .run file is and open console there:
chmod +x amd-driver-*.run
sudo sh amd-driver-*.run --force
sudo aticonfig --initial -f
sudo reboot

I'd say Linux Mint wins. The other two don't compile kernels. Although a compiler that runs on the GPU sounds interesting. I wonder how viable it would be.

9.01.1210 is either 13.1 or the latest beta driver

Thats Beta showing as 12.10 and not 9.01 ;)
If there is still 9.01 after installing drivers from AMD Site, the prop drivers installed before where not removed correctly

I did it like a milion times, but every time i reboot xorg.conf is making my laptop unbootable ...
after i remove xorg.conf everything is Ok ...

try installing linux-headers-generic by typing this in terminal:
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic

then try those steps again, the fglrx drivers can not function without headers installed.

Have you disabled Hybrid Grahpics in your BIOS ?
If not (or your BIOS has no option to do so) you will have a hard time getting the dedicated card running. I dont have a link by hand for it, but just google a bit for "linux amd driver hybrid "
