    How does one disable PAT? Because I'm getting that irritating jerkiness with compiz.

    Regards

    So I need to recompile the kernel? Or do you mean that I just at nopat in grub?

    Hmm, since they've added Xfire support, has anybody tried the new drivers with a 3870X2 card, by any chance. I just got all excited and then i checked the "supported cards" sheet and it says that they're not currently supported... bahh..

    Only rv770 and r700 are supported at the moment.

    Default More trouble for me

    I just installed 8.8 and I've had more trouble with it than I did with 8.6/8.7. With compiz effects enabled, I still get flickering video with the xv setting, but unlike 8.6, Catalyst 8.8 corrupts the video after exiting full screen mode, and I have to play around until I find the close button for MPlayer so the video goes back to normal. Alt+F4 is a very handy key combo in this situation.

    I'm going to roll back to the previous drivers. I had high hopes that the new driver would at least fix the flickering issues in MPlayer, but it I can only hold my head down now since it just worsen things.

    I didn't run into any of this trouble with my Geforce 7900gs. It would play all my videos fine without any flickering with compiz enabled. That's all I care about, really. (Kinda wish that card didn't die on me)

    I game on Windows, so I don't really care if certain games have trouble in Linux. I know a lot of people do, indeed, game on Linux, but I'm sure everyone would very much welcome a driver that allowed you to at least play videos (in a window or fullscreen) without it screwing up.

    I know I say this a lot, but man, I'm glad I have an R500. With last week's git snapshots of xf86-video-ati, it finally Just Works. Don't have to worry about what broke in THIS month's catalyst release.

    I don't understand their three-month development cycle. I mean, it sounds great on paper. From the user's perspective, though, it seems like they code for a month, sit around and think about their upcoming month of coding, then shove the driver out the door. I mean, quality assurance? beta release? really? If they actually DID those, how could they miss the bugs we complain about daily on these forums?

    Default OpenGL screensavers "hang" on exit (again)

    This looks like a regression: Try running any of the OpenGL xscreensaver hacks found in the /usr/libexec/xscreensaver/ directory and then press ESC. With fglrx 8.8, I no longer get my command line back.

    I know I had this problem several releases ago, but thought that it had been fixed.

    KDE 4.1 doesn't even work for me with this driver version.
