comment Why isn't Ubuntu using the open-source AMD/ATI drivers?
hmm..I was having a problem before when I upgraded to 12.04, the screen was not showing anything, so I think I went ahead and installed fglrx. So I just need to purge fglrx and the 'radeon' driver would be activated? I'll try it and post the results, thanks!

I tried the open source drivers (from your instructions) and so far no problems (freeze or hang). I have one last question though, how do you update an open source driver?

yup, I've also tried using the additional drivers, but had similar results.

I got my driver on the ATI driver page, and it gives me a few glitches and slowdowns. I'm actually not sure which I want to install. Do you recommend any one of them? I prefer one that will give me the most stable performance, I don't really mind if it's closed or open sourced.

it looks like I actually have the ATI driver, I've updated the question.
