Is the latest radeon legacy driver compatible with xserver 1.13? I have HD4xxx and HD5xxx video cards on my laptop. I want to install Ubuntu 12.10 but not sure if everything will be ok with legacy driver.

It is not.

This does exist though:

You may want to uninstall your current drivers, upgrade to 12.10, then try that.

Thanks. I know about that solution and I don't like it. Just waiting when AMD releases new version of legacy driver. Are they going to do that at all? – rooneyua Mar 27 '13 at 17:32
