    On ubuntu 8.10 (32-bit, catalyst 9.3) and ubuntu 9.04 post-beta (64-bit, catalyst pre-9.4) running

    aticonfig --acpi-services=off

    after "aticonfig --initial" really fixes the X-server crash.

    I have tested the catalyst driver a bit under ubuntu 8.10 and my first impression is, that the performance has significantly improved over the "stock driver" shipping with ubuntu 8.10.

    Thanks a lot for the hint shiftear!

    No problem, after I found this fix I just couldn't keep it for myself, I remembered the endless hours of frustration I had and I needed to share the solution

    shiftear: After running "aticonfig --acpi-services=off" I now have problems of using the HDMI output. I cannot configure the connected LCD TV in the Catalyst control center. This did work with the stock catalyst driver in ubuntu 8.10. However, I am not sure, if this could be related. Does it work for you (just in case you have already tried it out)?

    Sorry, I didn't test that yet (I have no HDMI cable, usually I use another laptop with a DVI->HDMI cable) and I don't think I will any time soon.

    Anyway, that's a shame. Did you try it by hotplugging or plug-and-restart ?

    I tried hotplugging & restarting. I will still play around a bit and see if this might be related to some other setting. I will keep this forum posted.

    I'll ask tomorrow around for a HDMI cable and if I'm lucky I'll try this also and post back.

    Anyway, I get around 3 hours on battery out of my 8530p so it's not too bad.

    Edit:
    I'm on 9.04 right now I and see compiz paired with fglrx still has issues -> slow window resize, about 1 sec delay when unminimizing a window, slow movie playback (frames dropped), crash when full screen a movie window (only totem tested).

    On 8.10 with catayst 9.3 it works amazingly well.
    Thats because 9.3 is newer than the driver'in 9.04. The driver in 9.04 is just a modified 9.2, with 1.6 xserver support I think.

    You won't get hdmi or vga to work with hd3650 in 9.04's fglrx alpha driver (At least I didn't). Because the driver have the same bug as in the fglrx 9.4 alpha version, were it is almost impossible to use either hdmi or vga. It is fixed in fglrx 9.3 though :-) So just wait for the fglrx 9.4 final in 9.04. I have gone back to 8.10, and I am now enjoying my card on fglrx 9.3 agin :-)
