    Exclamation AMD/ATI APU no graphical display

    Ok. I have waited many weeks for a resolution to the issue with AMD/ATI APU graphics. I have tried 'nomodeset', 'radeon mode=0', and 'radeon mode=1' with no video after booting from live disk. I have tried vesa mode, and 'mode=771'. I have tried combinations. I am running Ubuntu 11.04 now on the computer with the AMD/ATI APU graphics and making this post with it. No issues. What has been broken in all flavors of linux to cause the graphics display to no longer work??? No version of linux (new versions) will work anymore. Not Fedora, not SuSE, not Ubuntu, NOTHING......with the new kernels. My computer is a HP Pavilion dv6z quad-core APU with the built-in APU graphics adaptor from ATI. Only the OLD versions of linux will work with it. Will I have to give up using linux on it or use only MS???? I have been a long time user of linux and it is my preferred OS but I like to keep it current. I can continue to use 11.04 for a time but eventually there will be no support for it. Then what?
