It's an ATI Mobility Radeon M300 I think, or something like that. It
works fine for Beryl (followed the installation guide at
http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Feisty) so I'm not sure why it
doesn't function properly. The OpenGL option for UT doesn't work at
all, it now won't start apart from in 'safe mode'.
