they are just like telling you to wait till the next generation of GPUs to come up and then they will improve the R600 driver. Anyway, i got problem running Xgl + windows manager. It just freezes the whole screen when composite windows manager is executed. and clues?
You could wait till 8.42 and just use AIGLX :)

well, now to my stuff, okey i fixed a symlink with libgl.1.0 or what it was again, well... now i got another damn issue stuck up in my ass.
name of display: :0.0
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 0 ()
Serial number of failed request: 8
Current serial number in output stream: 8
fun fun fun..
Got HD 2900 XT
When I got the 8.41 driver first time in hand and installed it, up on restart I say half scan line of random pixels on the top of screen I knew something was not right...
Then there's extreme 2D slowdown, like draging a Digg webpage would stuck like my 3.5GHz Core 2 is a Pentium II dog.
I removed the 8.41 right away. Knowing it has great OpenGL code base but I just can't enjoy it while there are so many rough edges in the driver... Donno if one month.... 5 weeks polishing is enough to removed those bugs or not.
I have Mobility Radeon x2300 (debian kernel - 22, xorg 1.4)
8.42 starts without any trouble and opengl working the same as 41.7
but with aiglx:
xorg.log: (WW marked)
(WW) fglrx(0): board is an unknown third party board, chipset is supported
(WW) fglrx(0): Only one display is connnected,so single mode is enabled
(WW) fglrx(0): could not detect X server version (query_status=-3)
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "FSAAEnable" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "FSAADisableGamma" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "RenderAccel" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "VendorName" is not used
(WW) fglrx(0): Option "ModelName" is not used
(WW) AIGLX: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x25
(WW) AIGLX: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x26
(WW) AIGLX: 3D driver claims to not support visual 0x78
is it ok?
and when I'm trying to start compiz 5.2 it is saying:
GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is not available with direct rendering.
GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is not available with indirect rendering. Aborting!
but when I call compiz.real --replace it starts somehow but in a strange way (no headers of windows and no switching between desktops and no keyboard entering ) )
upd: oh, misunderstood. doesn't start at all..
what is the problem, anybody, can you help?
The Xserver 1.4 support is half broken:
a) First 3d app does not work (you have to close it)
b) AIGLX does not work
It works with Xserver 1.3 however, if you like downgrade.
Well i don`t know were my last write went, but anyway now i get the openSUSE 10.3 +xorg7.2+fglrx 8.41.7 work even after reboot,
But on this morning when i boot my pc, it didn`t work anymore" just black screen again, and i have to go init 3 to get log in..
Does anybody have suggestion what to do?
the 8.42.3 version what i also try it, didn`t work either, on list i did not found suse 10.3 that i could build the package for it.
Ou and i`m using kernel 184.108.40.206 with suse patch.
Ps. sorry my english is little bit rust.
