Slack14 and Dell Latitude 131l - ATI Radeon XPress 1150

just installed slackware 14, everything was fine except the fact that the environment graph presents only just a multitude of vertical stripes ...
any ideas?

one thing more:
after a time relatively soon, apparently the monitor off. then when we press enter the graphical environment is gone ... and is allowed to log the command startx and the desktop environment is loaded, and all things work well?
seems that the graphical environment rises before loading the driver of the video card, any ideas?

Tkx again

I found it on debian wiki

"Radeon Xpress 200M (R300) on laptop

During a long time, on laptops with Radeon Xpress 200M (R300) you may get some random colored stripes (especially after suspending display power). This is problably due to a bug into free driver. A solution may be to switch off, then switch on the backlight with radeontool (eponymic package). "

how i do that in Slack?
