comment Does Ubuntu support Radeon HD 6750M or 6490M?
i think that you have to read the post before making statements, the 6xxxM family does not sound really old for me and for the market.

the whole 6xxxM series is fully supported by the fglrx driver, you can easily check this at the download page from the official website.

comment How do I fix a greyed-out dual monitor on a machine with NVidia graphics?
check under the icon of the gear, in the upper right corner, there is a shortcut for the display management, try to set your displays from there.

comment I think my graphic card is not being recognized properly
you can use the command lshw -c video to obtain info about your video card, you can also use a graphical interface thanks to the command jockey-gtk to manage additional drivers for your system. Please specify what you have done and what you mean with "patch".

comment Firefox 4 and Firefox 3.6, users cannot start Firefox 3.6
Running two different versions of Firefox at the same time or under the same userspace it's really unsafe because no matter what Firefox looks every single time for its own home folder ~/.mozilla and differents versions of Firefox provide different organization and data for this folder, it's true that the basic skeleton contemplates the presence of common files like key3.db or signons.sqlite but it can occur that with a new version some files can be deleted or merged togheter and you can lost your data doing this back and forth.

what do you mean? the installation of the plugin you want or the execution of two different versions of Firefox? This should solve your first problem.

comment 64-bit LiveCD won't boot… 32-bit does
I have a similar hardware except for my video card ( it's an ATI ) and all runs just fine with several Ubuntu versions, both 32 and 64 bit, i can suggest to re-download the iso and check for MD5 hashing checksum help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes

run sudo apt-get install -f , you probably forgot to install some dependencies.

comment Bursts of white noise sound when playing videos
for your convenience i think that the best move is to open a new topic about building patch from diff files mentioning the name of the lib you are targeting, the links above and your needs. I honestly do not know how to build a patch as described in the post linked above so i can't help you on this and probably can be too messy doing that in a topic with a little bit different argument like this one.

this is a website about Ubuntu, search for a tutorial or something like that on the internet for extra information that does not belongs to the topic of this website.

comment Best graphics card for running two monitors with Unity
I can say the same for the Nvidia card, also ATI has never released driver that had caused severe damages to the cards like Nvidia did at least twice in the recent past. Most people skip the part about settings and this is why you can read so much about "troubles" with ATI cards, most effects and improvements are disabled by defaults and most of the people think that the drivers are buggy or they under performs when is simply not true and their machines needs only some tuning.

comment Best graphics card for running two monitors with Unity
i have two ATI from a long time to now and i have not experienced any trouble with those video cards. Your statement is simply not true, also ATI has a dedicated technology named "Eyefinity" which performs really well and Nvidia does not offers anything similar to that.

comment Installed 11.10, but it's not detecting all 8GB of RAM, only 3.9GB. BIOS sees 8GB
in my experience the PAE module is always present, i never ever experienced a 32 bit installation without the PAE module, at least this is true for me since lucid.

comment Installed 11.10, but it's not detecting all 8GB of RAM, only 3.9GB. BIOS sees 8GB
this is not true, practically every recent release of Ubuntu uses the PAE module for the kernel when a 32 bit is used on a machine with more than 3.5Gb of RAM, so this is not a valid explanation
