Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-ati

Lucid Lynx 10.04 AMD64 Beta 1

xserver-xorg-video-radeon 1:6.12.192-2ubuntu2
xserver-xorg-video-ati 1:6.12.192-2ubuntu2

AMD AthlonTM X2 Dual-Core QL-65 @ 2.1GHz (running stock speed, Cool 'n' Quiet working, cpu frequency regulation in kerenel is working, idles @ 1.05GHz but temperature still goes up)
AMD M780V Chipset
ATI Radeon 3100 IGP (RV610)
720P video native support (I suppose that means hardware implemented)

Laptop (Toshiba L305D-S5959) overheats when running open source driver.
Idles at around 70°C at room temperature of ~22°C, have BIOS set to
shutdown at 95°C to avoid hardware damage. Computer will shut itself off
due to temperature under moderate load such as viewing flash video in
Firefox on hulu.com. This has been repeated at least 3 times.

Running  the  proprietary fglrx driver 2:8.721-0ubuntu7 (with no other
software changes), the computer idles  @ 45°C (20°C cooler) at room
temperature of ~22°C. Watching video on hulu.com does not cause
overheating issues.

This is something that could damage computers. If it's under warranty
but Ubuntu is found on the hard drive the manufacturer will probably
void the warranty. I certainly don't want Ubuntu to get that kind of
