    Actually, this should be trivial to fix if it was a simple shader incompatibility. However, for some reason only the plugin authors know, they decided to assemble the shader piece by piece through C code (strcpy essentially). The code would be trivial to fix if they followed standard shader techniques (e.g. a large shader string modified through conditional compilation), but as things stand the blur plugin is so convoluted it's next to impossible to modify, much less fix.

    Edit: no video flickering here with either 9.7 or 9.8 (4850). Video is not vsynced, either.

    Oh, okay... Let's hope Compiz 0.9 is doing a better job then

    just looking at issues reported in this whole thread makes me wonder whatare fglrx devs actually doing.

    i've stopped using fglrx around 8.35 in 2007 and i'm interested in whether there was at least one solid fglrx/catalyst release since then.

    Haha great it actually works with Fedora 11 for a 5 SECONDS until it freezes the whole system! Brilliant!

    ??? wtf?

    emmm... bkl is in linux since it can do smp. So at least 2.0. <Preemptive kernel? of course! for ages.

    I still see video tear even without compiz.

    system:debian sid
    linux kernel 2.6.30-1-amd64
    ATI HD4350.

    What can I do?

    ssh'ing into my F11 box and attempting to install 9.8 from the console proved more enlightening:

    I know that, but there is really no other better option?

    I can compile lastest open source radeon and drm driver, but it does not have 3D support.
    I can't use radeon with 3D visual effect of compiz or Kwin.
