Ok folks I know everyone is busy but it's time to actually sit down and write a driver for the ATI Radeon card used in a lot of laptops. This has been a topic/bug in the forums since 2008 without being resolved and the work-arounds aren't working. The garbled display is really getting to be overwhelming and the symantic touchpad is not functional and this is been going on since Fedore 13 and Ubuntu 10. It seem Linux is turning into an Intel/Dell shop. I'm running on a Gateway netbook LT3101u CPU - AMD ATHLON 64 ATI Radeon graphic card.

I think I will have to figure out which modules are required for my laptop and remove the unused modules from being loaded at boot. Also when I'm using Firefox and hit a website with active content puff the desktop and display become garbled
