I just got my AO725 and I have sucessfully installed Xubuntu 12.10. It's all okay except the temperature which is pretty high - it's about 70° (idle) to 85° C (load). I have installed additional driver for graphics (fglrx-updates), but it's only few degrees colder. The main problem with drivers is that there is no support for my AMD Fusion C-70 graphics, the system says it's HD7200 series. If I try to run 'amdconfig --initial' command, I got message that my hardware is not supported, so I think there is also problem with drivers which are not ready for my graphics.

When will be drivers for my processor and graphics available?

What could be a problem or it's that the normal temperature for netbook like this?
