I posted about this a couple of days ago… upgrading your kernel to version 2.6.39. Because upgrading your kernel to version 2.6.39 with ati video cards is a bit tricky we decided to create a script for it. With the help of nightfly for the coding and some help of me and my laptop for script testing we created 2 scripts. One script for upgrading the kernel for those who have an nvidia graphic card and one script for those with an ati graphic card. Using the scripts is very easy.. download it, make it executable and run it from a terminal window and let the script do the rest. When the script is finished all there is to do is to restart your computer and run a system update to finish the installation of the new kernel.
Download the patch you need and when downloaded go to your Downloads folder and click with your right mouse on the patch file. Now select Properties and click on the Permissions tab and mark Allow executing file as a program. When done click on the close button and open a terminal window (press Ctrl+Alt+T) then copy+paste one of the following lines:
Download the script you need here:
Download patch for ATI
Download patch for Nvidia
Please note that during the installation using the ati script you will get some error messages just click on the close and the cancel buttons if/when they appear.
