Jonathan's version is IMHO better because the synopsis can be used
alone, which was not the case of the version originally proposed.
My proposal would be to avoid the use of first person ("who is
"It is recommended to use the free radeon friver"
or, to avoid passive form:
"You should use the free radeon driver".
Also avoid "your system"....
Also: "install WHAT despite unsupported graphics card"
And finally, I would recommend avoiding the "GPU" acronym
Which would turn the template to:
_Description: Install fglrx driver despite unsupported graphics card?
The following graphics chipset found in this system are no longer handled
by the fglrx driver:
You shoudl use the free radeon driver (package: xserver-xorg-video-radeon)
for these cards.
If you would like to install fglrx anyway (for example to drive some
other card), it will not interfere with other drivers for these cards.
