Available drivers for AMD HD4000 series?
Hi,

So I have an HD4670, and I tried to install the suggested drivers from amd web: 13.1
The problem is that it doesn't support the 3.5v kernel.

Are there any others drivers that I could try?

Ty.

Try the open source ones.

you need a newer Kernal for better support and Opensource drivers

To install the latest open source driver, see my response in this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/0/864972399638092813/
Disregard the part about removing fglrx. Also, make sure to download this kernel instead of the one linked: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.11-rc1-saucy/ because this one is now the newest (3.11-rc1).

Thank you! Will try it.

Btw, that drivers are not exclisives for ATI Mobility cards, no? Because mine is not "Mobility".

Right, this PPA works for all Radeon cards (and many others, such as Nvidia and Intel).

EDIT: One more thing, those instructions assume that you have a 32-bit installation of Ubuntu. If you have a 64-bit installation, you have to download linux-headers-blabla-all.deb, linux-headers-blabla-amd64.deb and linux-image-blabla-amd64.deb (basically, not i386 versions, but amd64 versions).

Well, I had no luck :(

That kernel doesn't support my wireless adapter (can't install the drivers).

As things are, I better forget about it, if amd don't continue to support their HD 4000 cards, it doesn't have much sense to think that I will be able to play smoothly my games (dota2 basically).

Thank iskeledz for your attention ;)

Well, then you could just try installing the drivers with your stock 3.5 kernel or even install Ubuntu 13.04 which comes with the 3.8 kernel. The open source drivers work great for me on my HD4890 (I can max out CS:S, DOD:S and L4D2 on 1920x1080 without AA and I get 60FPS) and it would be a shame if you couldn't at least try them.

I use this PPA since Ubuntu 12.10 and works great...

sadly it says:

"P.S. It was pointed to me, that Radeon HD4670 AGP card is EXCLUDED from the Legacy Driver support."
