The newer ATi laptop graphics are a real headache to get working in many Linux distros that use X11, especially the "Live" ones for which a permanent one-time install (using the ".run" file) isn't very feasible. In my "Google" searches for a fix, I found quite a few postings in many forums about newer ATi chipset problems. None of them had very satisfactory replies to them. Found bits, pieces and clues here and there. Many had zero (useful) replies.
...that's why I I didn't include ATI's own drivers in the compiz stuff. But great work, and thanks for the contibution.
