Ubuntu Jaunty unstable with video ATI chipset

If you have a laptop or machine with a ATI video card and you install Ubuntu Jaunty, you probably notice it's not stable and X freezes very frequently.

This fixed my problem:

# 32 bit
wget http://temp.minimum.se/mesa_with_fixed_ati_bug/libgl1-mesa-dri_7.4-0ubuntu3_i386.deb
wget http://temp.minimum.se/mesa_with_fixed_ati_bug/libgl1-mesa-glx_7.4-0ubuntu3_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i libgl1-mesa-dri_7.4-0ubuntu3_i386.deb libgl1-mesa-glx_7.4-0ubuntu3_i386.deb

# for 64 bit
# replace i386 with amd64
