  GPU runs hot, fans always racing with the ATI driver

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  If I use the open source drivers with my Asus k42j laptop the GPU runs
  very hot and the fans race all the time.  Installing the proprietary
  drivers helps a little but neither works as well as windows on this

  I would prefer to use the open source drivers as if possible. ATI
  radeon HD 5470 Ubuntu 11.10. Upgrading to oenric didn't help at all in
  fact it may have made things worse as I have experienced a few crashes
