    And what about a bad regression that segfaults my Xorg on start-up?

    It already happened with Catalyst 8.7...

    Code:
    [...snip...]
    (II) fglrx(0): Direct rendering enabled
    (II) fglrx(0): Interrupt handler installed at IRQ 16.
    (II) fglrx(0): Exposed events to the /proc interface
    (II) fglrx(0): Finished Initialize PPLIB!
    (II) fglrx(1): === [atiddxPreInit] === begin
    (EE) fglrx(1): Quitting secondary screen -- no monitor specified.
    (EE) fglrx(1): PreInit failed
    (II) fglrx(1): === [atiddxPreInit] === end

    Fatal server error:

    exactly the same backtrace!! (info about my architecture are in that thread, too)

    and other people experienced it too:

    with other chipsets...


    Catalyst 8.8 and 8.6 didn't suffer for the hang. While 8.9 and 8.7 do hang in the same way.
    There may be a workaround?

    Bridgman, you could know an answer, or just tell your friends in AMD that this happens on this specific platform:
    Code:
    BIOS_CREATION_DATE="01/28/08,15:12:26"
    BIOS_MSG="ASUS_F3Sa A12 M76 BIOS GDDR2 400m/500e ASID:A15201.011$                     "
    BIOS_KIT_VERSION="BK-ATI VER010.054.000.000"
    Thanks

    Fixed, no. They are still working to implement and complete the missing features that is causing the tearing. However, I noticed a lot less tearing in this release than the previous. For me, I only notice the tearing during really fast action scenes.

    I had the same problem, I couldn't run X.
    Uninstalling fgrlx with purging /etc/ati/ and restoring default xorg.conf and then installing Catalyst 8.9 helped me.
    Try this, may be it's your case as well...

    @Vighy,

    which version of xorg-server do you use?
    I succeeded only after upgrading from 1.4.0.99 (which is default for Slackware 12.1 and Slamd64 12.1) to 1.4.2...

    xorg-server-1.4.2
    and tried with 1.3.0.0 with the same result..

    but I also tried on a livecd of ubuntu, a supported distro, and Xorg hung again...

    with 8.7 bridgman said it could be related to my platform.. I don't know...

    There is a thread here on how to hack the driver to get it working. However, this is not enough. I'm with you.
