My specs are:
AMD phenom II 955
MOBO: ASUS M5A88-M
GPU: ATi HD 4250 with catalyst 12.6 beta (latest for HD 4000 series)
I installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32bit.
Problem is that Ubuntu 12.04 has kernel 3.2.0 which is not supported by Ati Catalyst 12.6 beta. Currently I am running fglrx graphics drivers downloaded from Ubuntu, but they dont seem to work as UI is very sluggish, even video playback is sluggish.
Now resolution I am thinking is to wait for next catalyst update or to replace ubuntu 12.04 with one with a previous version of kernel which is supported bu catalyst 12.6beta.
Is their any other alternative? please suggest.

A rollback? 12.5 12.4 12.1? Not running 12.04, but sometimes with linux, the latest is not the greatest.

Doesn't exist, especially with ATI, google Stallman ATI for more insight.

And your list is backwards, you want kernel x supports driver x, but again that list doesn't really exist because of all the hardware variables. So, try a few different things, something will work.
