    Mr_Ed:

    They won't fix it since 9600XT is in their 'dropped' list.

    Stick with OSS driver at least they are good at video playback.

    AFAIK Mr. Ed is using the OSS drivers from F11 which include DRI2, RDR, KMS etc...

    Should that also be in redhat bugzilla?
    I was told yesterday that bug reports are still being requested for the drivers in F11. A few other people reported the slow/choppy video under compiz issue so there is probably a bugzilla ticket already, in which case adding your info to the existing ticket would probably be better than starting a new one. I'll try to check the database later today and see what is already there.

    I'm hoping to gather info from the experience of others, so I have one simple question. Well, probably simple.

    Does the Desktop Environment impact the efficiency of video playback using the Catalyst driver? That is, will switching from KDE 3.5 to either Gnome or KDE 4.2 make a difference?

    I can't answer that. I don't have problems watching 720p vids or tv (with tvtime) with or without effects in kde 4.2.X. But I don't monitor cpu usage constantly.

    I have the 4670 and 9.3 is just about tolerable. There are no problems that weren't already there before such as occasional crashes, pointer corruption and all OpenGL programs being blocked until a reboot.

    3D support for this card in the open drivers seems like it's about to arrive at long last, though I gather it might not be very usable straight away. It shouldn't take too much longer though, judging by how things progressed with the R500.

    Video works okay but there's still some tearing. Not sure if I have the best settings for that. Games are okay too. Never bothered with compiz.

    Never tried it. I'm pretty sure it would work though.
