I am new to Ubuntu and Linux. I have been working with this for 1 week now. So far, I love it.

My question is about HyperMemory on an ATI card. I have a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop. The card has 128 MB of onboard memory and also uses 128 MB from RAM (HyperMemory). This worked fine in Windows and everything showed 256 MB of video memory.

I am using the restricted driver fglrx.

Does HyperMemory work in Ubuntu? It seems that everywhere I look in the software, it only shows that I have 128 MB of video memory.

Am I missing something? Thanks for your help and feel free to point me somewhere if this is covered elsewhere. I have looked around and not found the answer.
