Need older ATI driver

OK, according to an old document on a subdomain I need ATI's Proprietary Linux driver version 8.14.13 (IIRC) to work with my Radeon Mobility x600.

The only reference I can find to a linux driver is to which in every instance is "I have this on my desktop and..."

What I need is to get the OLD ATI drivers. I know they were downloadable from, but every other page I can find redirects to gives me dropdowns which lead to a message that the OEM is responsible for my laptop. Going to HPs site gives ONLY Windows XP drivers as this is an older laptop and card.

So I know the drivers were downloaded a lot, I know the files are out there but AMD points to the manufacturer, the manufacturer doesn't recognize linux and I cannot find an alternative download source... wishing they'd just left the drivers on ATI with a disclamer, or provide the driver with a disclaimer has got me nowhere- so... where can I get a copy of ati-driver-installer-8.*.* files OR the drivers themselves (or both if I need them).

  1. Use the "download drivers" drop-down menus in the upper right corner. They may lead you to manufacturer support page.

    Is this what you need?
    and (read the installer notes for directions to use).

  4. DogSnake that was exactly what I was looking for but unfortunately it failed anyway. (Radeon Mobility x600 under linux mint 11).

    I also tried the current linux AMD drivers, despite my card not being supported- for the record, not only did that not work but it messed up the native drivers enough I have to go figure out how to restore them, or uninstall the .run...

    Thanks anyway!
