  1. Clicked the popup in 7.10 in the notification area and installed the ati driver without a single problem on a notebook.

    3D works fine.

    Sorry have never done it on a 9550.

    Hope this helps :)
  2. 9550 is included in the default ATI binary driver so it _should_ be the same..

    It works on my x1900GT, but that is a *much* newer card than the 9550. IIRC, the 9500 series may not be supported on the latest drivers. Execute the following command less the quotes and tell me what you see: "dmesg | grep fglrx"
  4. i have a 9550 and it works fine if you enable the restricted drivers use.
