This question already has an answer here:
I have the Asus Eee-pc 1015T - this is an AMD based netbook and it comes with a great AMD Radeon HD 4250 vga.
With Windows 7 it can play 1080p HD video smoothly and during normal usage the average noise level it's quite low.
with Ubuntu 11.04 beta 1 the standard installed vga driver is the Gallium 3D 0.4 which is good for a normal netbook experience but it causes 3 main problems:
Average fan noise level is really annoying;
High battery consumption;
It can't reproduce even 720p HD video.
Issue 3 isn't critical for me.
Ubuntu restricted driver doesn't show any proprietary driver available for my configuration but in synaptic well-known fglrx driver are present.
So how could I sort out issues 1 and 2? Does fglrx work better with 4250 HD? Is there a program to control my eee-pc fan-speed?
