Up-to-date ATI and NVIDIA proprietary drivers

Registered by Alberto Milone on 2006-10-27

The ATI and NVIDIA binary drivers which come with Ubuntu's linux-restricted-modules should be kept up-to-date at least for the following reasons:

1) Adding the support for the latest ATI and Nvidia graphic card models

2) Fixing security issues (such as the one which affects the Nvidia driver 8774)

3) Enhancing the support for TV-Out/Dual Screen settings (thanks to ATI and Nvidia's GUI control panels)

4) Providing the best support for AIGLX and the latest eyecandy
