Actually, all Envy does is install the proprietary ATI drivers (not sure what you meant by "standard").

You don't need Envy to run the proprietary ATI drivers, either; you can simply follow the steps outlined on the unofficial ATI for Linux Wiki:

Yeah, you're right. But for some people it isn't as easily fixable bo using Ubuntu's somewhat shoddy howto. For instance, I had ATI drivers working great. A few weeks later, one of the updates did something ot make those drivers stop working. I followed every howto I could find but to no avail. I used Envy and everything worked perfectly. That is the main reason why I recommended it.

If it was a kernel update, then you have to recompile the the kernel module.
