So now I'm here with a new PC and just got Vector installed triple booting with Linux Mint and Windows 8. I'd like to install the proper AMD Radeon 7640G Mobile video drivers for my card. Cant find FGLRX in the repo, searched Google.. not shre whats the right info. This is a hybrid CPU and GPU called APU. Perhaps i need new drivers for my CPU also? How do APU drivers work in Linux should be the question I'm asking.
Also, I had to install both Mint and Vector with no Home or no Swap partition ( otherwise i would not have enough primary partitions for them.) I'm not too worried about the swap because I have 8 gigabytes of ram. Will not having a Home partition cause me any problems?
No drivers needed for the CPU and the normal AMD drivers will work for the graphics side of the APU. You an snag them directly from AMD and the installation process is fairly straight forward.
There's no need to stick with primary partitions. Ensure you have the machine backed up, and then use the free space available to create an extended partition. Once that is done, the sky is the limit and you can create as many logical partitions as you need.
