How to install correctly the Mobility radeon 4200 HD
 
Yo there gang=)
Does someone have a magick trick to make this card runs well on linux
lspci shows this:
01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc M880G [Mobility Radeon HD 4200]
Ive tryed the ati binaries and its very bad.
It takes a delay to switch from window to window and when tryed to play video it plays in slow motion doesnt matter what I do.
Some ideas?
I dont want 3d things only a good 2d performance.
Thanks in advance

The open source 'radeon' driver that most distributions use by default should provide good 2D performance, and so-so 3D performance.

Thanks Adam, I-ve tryed the radeon from x11 but it shows the same freezed problem in the video output, I dont understand where I ve done the check but after installing several times it finally set correctly =p
