    First when i enable EXAVSync i see gtkperf performance drop (from 10s to 22s) and 'man radeon' said "It reduces tearing at the cost of performance." == that is OK... Then i start tvtime (overlay port) and got hard freeze. Reboot on case button. Then i start 'xdtv' (now with textured video port), second hard freeze. Reboot on case button. off for EXAVSync. Write this.

    r200 (9250) here

    Just tried the latest version (6.9.0+git20081206.979ad04d-0ubuntu0tormod) on Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit running a Thinkpad Z61m with an X1400 ATI chip and I'll be damned!

    Never seen such smooth video playback of Big Buck Bunny (big_buck_bunny_1080p_surround.avi) on this laptop before using either previous radeon or fglrx drivers (and trust me about using that video as a benchmark, my one and a half year old daughter has us see that one almost once a day).

    I need to toggle Compiz off using fusion-icon though or there will still be tearing. I have nothing else manually specified in my xorg.conf than the EXA option:

    Code:
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier	"Configured Video Device"
    	Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    EndSection
    The radeon driver has come a long long way this year and I can finally fully enjoy using this laptop without breaking into tears

    To everyone involved in improving, packaging and testing this driver, thanx for your hard work and happy holidays!

    bridgman, I'm sure you know what we all want for this Christmas this year. Apart from being grumpy about fglrx and impressed by Nvidias VDPAU I've been a fairly good boy

    Ah, well, I am the person responsible for reporting these bugs:

    Hm, maybe I got something wrong, but how do you enable XV at all with the Radeon driver? I'm using the latest one (1:6.9.0+git20081003.f9826a56-0ubuntu4) from Jaunty at the moment, and 'xvinfo' returns:

    X-Video Extension version 2.2
    screen #0
    no adaptors present

    Is there any specific configuration option I should enable? I'm using a HD3200 IGP.

    Xv is only available on r1xx-r5xx chips. Accel code (including Xv) for r6xx/r7xx chips (the hd3200 is r6xx based) is in progress and will be released as soon as the IP review is finished.

    Ah, thanks a bunch! I thought that applied only to RadeonHD.

    You might want to try the updated Intrepid driver from my personal repository at https://launchpad.net/~tormodvolden/+archive
    It should run fine in Jaunty.
