Lenovo T60p 10.04 LTS upgrade and 2nd video monitor -- which driver?
To follow up on my own post:
Turned out to be a kernel problem:*https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/+source/linux/+bug/537640
And I "fixed" by updating to a newer kernel, as described in the bug, from here:
I say "fixed" because the laptop can only sometimes now wake from a sleep where it worked fine before the upgrade to 10.04LTS.

This T60p has**ATI Technologies Inc M56GL [Mobility FireGL V5250]. *After upgrading to 10.04LTS a few days ago the 2nd monitor connected to the laptop's VGA plug had a very wavy display. *Pretty much impossible to read.
I installed the*fglrx driver and after rebooting and selecting an earlier kernel (*Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS, kernel 2.6.31-22-generic instead of Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-25-generic) both monitors work.
But, I don't have compiz any more.
I do have "Proprietary drives for devices (restricted)" checked, and Admin->Hardware Drives shows no proprietary drivers. *aticonfig says:
$ aticonfig*aticonfig: No supported adapters detected
Seems like in the past after an upgrade I get a notification in the Gnome taskbar that a driver is available. *But, I'm not seeing that now. *But, it also seems like every upgrade on this old laptop requires a day of messing with it to get the video running.
Anyone know the correct way to get this card working again with the current kernel?
