I have a Thinkpad A30 (2652-34A) with what I think is a "ATI Mobility Radeon M6 LY" or possibly Rage m6? I have seen it both on random sites.

I can't get any hardware graphics acceleration, so the GUI is choppy and I can't play any videos fullscreen without serious framerate drops.

I tried fglrx, but when I restart X it crashes to safe mode.

Anyone have any ideas?

you can find out the type of card by executing
lspci and look for your graphics card.

is that what's outputted or is that what you are saying from personal knowledge?

bc the output would give more useful information about it.

also try google to see if ppl have any problems with that card in ubuntu
