Graphics settings in Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop
My computer is an ASUS 1005PEB running Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 64-bit.
Graphics Processor / Vendor Intel GMA 3150 Dynamic Video Memory Technology 4.0
Total Available Graphics Memory 384 MB (Shared system memory)
I have 2gb PC2-6400 DDR2 800 installed currently, which is the system max.
I'm trying to find out how much graphics memory my computer is using in Ubuntu as well as adjust settings. I recently updated my BIOS to the most recent revision 1202 from ASUS's website. This actually fixed problems with brightness settings and such, but my BIOS used to have a setting for maximum video memory (which was capped at 8mb). I'm guessing that updating the BIOS removed that restriction because the setting is missing now, however, I want to double check if that's the case in Linux.
Does Ubuntu 10.10 currently work with the Dynamic Video Memory Technology to take full advantage of the 384mb?
It seems to run video great even in full screen from Movie Player, but has problems with playing Flash video in full screen from web pages (mostly just lag problems).
I've checked in both SysInfo and System Testing, but neither gave much detailed information on my graphics chip.
My current Linux Kernel is 2.6.35-22-generic. I'm aware the Kernel handles the video information, but I couldn't locate the configuration files that have been suggested in other forums.
I'm still a new Linux user, so I'm still learning all the necessary terminal commands.

The hardware and firmware is all relatively new, so I'm certain there are going to be plenty of updates in future releases, but any help now would be greatly appreciated.
