Anyone solved savage2 bug ? or got a workaround ? on final 9.4 it doesnt even start, but on 9.4RC was working like a charm ;/
Anyone got xinerama working? Since the 8.8 release I still waiting for this feature. ATM there are only total crahses of the system when xinerama is on.
I have posted a bug report about the savage2 issue here:
Going through a number of reports I notice a lack of feedback, can we have confirmation that they aren't just met by a brick wall? That and the fact the forms haven't been updated since 9.1...
Thanks do not go to me but the bloke who replied on the ati bugzilla.
SetSave vid_fullscreen "false"
A patch just went up for Savage 2 that works around this fglrx issue (broken glXCloseWindow). You can update to it by running the dedicated server and letting it autoupdate (will take a minute or so for the update to begin).

The good thing is that I now have all the commands that I did to make it working.
Might not be needed, but I want to be sure to have fresh config.
sudo cp /etc/ati/amdpcsdb.default /etc/ati/amdpcsdb
sudo aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=horizontal
Here you just add the resolution you want on your two heads
sudo aticonfig --add-pairmode=1680x1050+1280x1024
I'm not using the tv-out on my HD2900XT but I guess you need to do
sudo aticonfig --enable-monitor=tmds1,tv
or something similar to activate the tv-output
After this you need a xorg.conf with 2 device entries and 2 screen entries, something similar to this:
My xorg.conf is still a bit messy, but it's working now so I don't dare to change anything at the moment :P
oh, and after doing this you'll get a xrandr like this:
Xv, GL video plugins with Compiz
I am using Ubuntu 9.04 x64 with fglrx 9.4 and ATI 4870.
With compiz enabled (AIGLX):
When i try to get video output through xv, i get very high cpu usage,
when i am trying to get video with through GL plugin i get serious flickering.
Is there any workaround, without disabling compiz?
Are you using the early 9.4 which was bundled with Jaunty, or the final 9.4 we released a couple of days ago ? The early driver did *not* have Redirected Direct Rendering, ie it would flicker when displaying GL under Compiz.
Going from memory, I think you want 8.602 in the release string. The early driver still starts with 8.60 but had a lower number IIRC.
I made a clean install of Ubuntu 9.04-rc x64 and applied all available updates.
