Any problems with XFX radeon 5450 with 16.04 and Kodi

Got one of these cards because I have to ( need half height) SO will I have a problem if I upgrade to 16.04 ?? I need to run KODI to get my tv shows. I “think” I read that the HD 5450 chipset had issues.

here’s the spec

Chipset: AMD Radeon HD 5450
Core Clock: 650 MHz
Video Memory: 2GB DDR3
Memory Clock: 800 MHz
Memory Interface: 64-bit
Max. Resolution (Digital): 2560 x 1600
Connectors: VGA, DVI, HDMI

According to Ubuntu’s Radeon Page it’s fully supported.

thanks ramblinman41 strange I thought I saw something that gave me pause for thought on upgrade. ALSO I find it strange that there are 40 other people called ramblinman41 :slight_smile:

Maybe this?

The 5450 is an older chip and the 15.10 driver works just fine in 16.04

I was thinking zebras not horses :slight_smile:
theakson is the result of a very very drunken night in a place in the UK called Yorkshire. Our car broke down and so we spent the night drinking some beer called Old Peculier. Whilst drunk I set up the email account to tell people how good it was and misspelt the name.

seems that it doesn’t as this looks like a kernel bug to me. Basically I’m watching a streaming movie and the video locks and the audio carries on. Ho HUM.
