FWIW fglrx dropped the entire r100, r200, r300-r500 families a while
ago. X1270 is an r500 brand name, so I'd expect the chipset to not
work with fglrx.

I recommend you consult with the Ubuntu team -- they can probably help
you get onto the open-source driver. (Or maybe somebody on this list
knows the magic Ubuntu incantations?)
