    I have posted a bug report about the savage2 issue here:

    http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1519

    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...

    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).

    @Heiko
    I'm have had working dual-screen with two monitors and they have different resolutions and after messing around with my config after a driver upgrade everything got broken so I had to redo everything..

    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

    Default 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.

    The package version in ubuntu is:
    xorg-driver-fglrx 2:8.600-0ubuntu2

    and the module release string
    ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Release Identifier: 8.60.4
