Self-reply, thread necromancy, are there any guidelines I won't break?
Update on the ATI laptop: Installed fglrx modules again (Debian sid) the
other day, Just Works. Previously had an idle temp of 70C+, screaming
fans (and a hot knee) and less than one hour battery life, now running
temp of less than 40C, quiet fans, comfortable knee, estimated 3 hours
battery life on light duties and of course much better 3D performance.
I'm now happy I made the right decision.
