Has there been any fix yet for the graphics problem? Removing fglrx and installing 11.9 from ATI hoses my system so I'm not going to bother for now. My understanding is there is a fix but it has not been released yet.
Thanks - my first question!
The way to install ati 11.10 drivers, working on my Hp Dv5 1135 and using right now gnome-shell
1. Uninstall all previews drivers with: If you get any error in any of these steps just repeat it
Restart your Computer
2. Install the necesary packages:

3. Download the new drivers with:
4. Create the package
Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric
Ubuntu 11.04 Natty
5. Install the package
RESTART YOU COMPUTER
If you get some error just uninstall the new drivers following just the first step
Hope it helps
