    @ phobeus
    I am not a newbie, and I understand German perfectly well ...
    I am just not sure if I should risk it again to destroy my GUI or not

    @Domi09: In fact my post was directed to ap90033, because you didn't react on his post. So I am still interested in who you did try it and especially which from the patches you used. I already wrote, I am also start to think that it is not a problem with the graphic driver directly. I also think that the problem might have something todo with the network manager. However, I have no clue about what's the problem. I have no wlan chip... but I am quite sure that not every RTL Chip should be effected. So I am still looking for any interesting idea ... and willed to risk the GUI ... fixing it again is getting very easy after some tries

    In fact these strange freeze are quite common. However the only issue is the map problem in the dmesg that fills the logs. All are reporting this problem, but there are quite many systems it is working very well. So I guess this one is not "our" problem. But I ran out of ideas ...

    @ap90033: No 9.5 does not fix the problem at all.

    Any idea as to when we can expect a working driver? Sad that I have a $400 ATI 4870X2 video card with a Core i7 running 3.8 GHZ and cant even run Unreal Tournament in Linux.. lol

    ap90033, are you also running F11 ? Are you also having the same network manager issue ?

    There are working Catalyst drivers today for the directly supported OSes (Ubuntu, RHEL, SLE*), but sounds like there are may be issues with F11.

    Hi bridgeman, first thanks for taking care for this old post. I am actually seems having a similiar problem. I am running F11 since Beta times and the main problem is that "fglrx" does not support the kernel 2.6.29. There are some fixes out there and it seems to be possible to compile and load the fglrx with F11. However, after a period of time < 15 seconds there is going something terribly wrong and the whole system hangs completly.

    It might be related to the network. The system does not seems to freeze in the login manager and it seems also to run for a while fine if using a very simple DE without accessing the net. But I was not able to trace down the problem into any direction, so I give up. I am without any 3D support since a month for now and really hoping that official support for the kernel 2.6.29 might fix the problem. This situation is totally nasty ... how can we ask for support, if we have to fix with inofficial patches that might be also the problem? As far as I know it is not possible to get working 3D with 48xx cards under F11... and the nearest solution seems to be the oss drivers.

    whoa stop the press, there are drivers out that work? I have tried Suse, Fedora, Ubuntu and NONE worked for me with Catalyst 9.3 and 9.4... I have an 4870X2 and it is hooked to a 1080P LCD TV BTW.
    So the latest drivers dont screw up the system?

    Money spent on NVIDIA would be better investment NVIDIA has no problems providing drivers on Fedora 11 for old GeForce MX 4 440 and ATI has got problems with providing working drivers for they new graphic cards Isn't it ridiculous

    BTW. I remember when F10 came out then there were also issues with FGLRX drivers. They just suck and that's all

    I agree but I REALLY WOULD HATE TO get RID OF A $400 card just to spend more on one with same performance you know? It would be nice to know that it works in Linux current distros. I am wanting to try Fedora 11 will it work? ATI has 9.6 drivers out now...

    Fglrx 9.6 does NOT support kernel 2.6.29 which is default in F11. I'm praying that fglrx 9.7 will have support.

    There are instructions on fedoraforum.org (here) on how to downgrade the kernel for fglrx in F11. But don't be deceived, the default kernel will not load an unmodified fglrx module.
