Re: Ubuntu makes my laptop to overheat
Good for you! Get tired of this knee-jerk "update your BIOS" response to overheating problems. Clearly, if the PC is NOT overheating in MS Windows, it is NOT a BIOS problem.

AMD did the same thing again this summer when they dropped support for the HD 2x/3x/4x line starting with Ubuntu 12.10.
WinXp is also using some old catalyst provided by lenovo web site 8.593.100.7-090929a-090748C-Lenovo.
Is there way to install older fglrx which support my card(which version?) to Ubuntu 12.04 ?
