I remember trying that with fglrx, iirc you had to add OverrideGPUValidation = 1 to /etc/adobe/mms.cfg to get it, because those useless idiots from Adobe only tested their code with NVidia cards. But iirc it didn't seem to make much difference.Quote:
on 32 bit at least normal flash is accellerated fullscreen with fglrx.
Good that OS ati drivers are progressing but untill I'll get more frames in hon I wont ditch fglrx :)
No surprise. I have two laptops with older Radeon Mobility chipsets. ATI has abandoned both of them so I have to use the free driver. It's a shame because Google Earth does not work on either of them any more. It ran fine on both way back when I could get ATI drivers.
People complain that nVidia does not support older hardware, but ATI is much worse in this respect.
I'm also one of those who switched to radeon after voting for fglrx in the survey. For me radeon also accellerates KDE with desktop effect enabled much betetr than fglrx. Not to mention all the freezing problems I had with fglrx.
I think it would be by far the best for all if AMD/ATI just abandon ther non-free and closed river and merge all the stuff into open source radeon driver and from this on focus only on open source radeon driver. The separate radeonhd driver should also be merged into normal radeon driver. With all working together on one codebase things could improve even more and much more quickly.
