   When did you upgraded to Edgy? The closed source 'fglrx' driver was
updated to work with X.Org 7.1 early this week.

   Knot-2 (when officially released, in a few days), will have this
driver available on the cd installation.

   The open source 'ati' driver (do not confuse with closed source
'fglrx') is already compatible with X.Org 7.1, and works with the video
chipset described above. If it doesn't works on your configuration (and
you *really* are using this driver), this is a bug, and you should open
a bug on LaunchPad, if possible.
