Bug Description

Not quite sure anymore what's going on but I have constant trouble with the radon cards (currently HD4670) and Ubuntu. Sometime its fixed but then with the next update things go astray again. I keep changing between proprietary amd/radon drivers and Ubuntu drivers. Sometimes the one works, sometimes the other, sometimes neither. fglrx seems to provide varying obstacles, broken packages and so forth. I have two monitors and would like to use them in portrait mode (turned left) with an extended desktop. As mentioned its worked several times before. In Ubuntu 10.4 it worked even with the standards xorg drivers until the update manager recently got the better of it - again. It is very discouraging that once painstakingly fixed it always brakes again.
I am aware that this description is not very helpful but then again the problems are varying and manifold.
