Ubuntu: R7 265 Ubuntu 16.04 Amd Drivers



Question:

I finished installing Ubuntu

My system runs on a low res (1024x768)

Trying to install proprietary amd drivers instead of Xorg crashes the program

Trying to install drivers from amd site fails and gets me into low res mode(640x480)

and then system wont boot in graphics mode

Also it R7 265 is recognised as HD 7850


Solution:1

I ran into similar problems. LinuxMint 17.3 (Ubuntu 14.04) does well on my dual monitor configuration. That is, using the proprietary fglrx driver. I can get 1440x900 on both displays, even though one connection is VGA straight and the other VGA through a HDMI-to-VGA converter.

Using an AMD Radeon HD 6450 PCI_e graphics card and 2 Asus VE198S LED monitors, with 1440x900 as max resolution and VGA/DVI-D/HDMI ports.

Whatever I tried - running LinuxMint 18 with either KDE or Cinnamon as live distro from a USB stick - I could not get anything better than a disappointing 1024x768 resolution on both screens. So, I'll stick to Ubuntu 14.04 and fglrx as long as necessary (and possible).

[EDIT:] Maybe this information is helpful? > Ubuntu 16.04 and amdgpu issues
