    Good release, at last kernel 2.6.30 support, though 2.6.31 is about to be released. But hopefully 9.9 will have support for it because Ubuntu will be almost close to release by then. Still the leaked 64bit driver I was using was not from 9.8 maybe it was 9.9 or 9.10 beta.

    I think it was a very early 9.9, sort of a pre-alpha.

    I'm missing the --xv-pixmap-buffer-type option from the leaked 8.65 version in aticonfig.

    I have installed the driver, and the TV out is broken. Despite I have the
    Code:
    Option "TVFormat" "PAL-B"
    line in my device section of my xorg.conf if I run
    Code:
    xrandr -screen 1 --prop
    it gives tv_format:NTSC-JPN. And the image is flickering and there are no colors.

    Moreover, after rollback to the 9.7 driver the problem persist.

    Has anyone any idea?

    I'd assume they ship a pre-release and backport the release, as before, if it's not ready in time.

    I've got the same thing. Try to change AA settings, it helps... sometimes.

    I'm guessing that option came from some other driver.

    AFAIK you normally set TV standards on fglrx using aticonfig. Run aticonfig --help and look for TV options.

    I think you want something like aticonfig --tvf=PAL-B.

    from the catalyst driver manual (/usr/share/doc/ati/html/ for me)

    Yes, I have tried but not working. Nor with catalyst 9.7.

    Then 9.9 won't have kernel 2.6.31 support, 9.10 should.

    Does anyone have a solution for the freeze situation on FC11?
    I have installed the 9.8 driver on FC11 64-bit, it works fine until a program of mine tries to connect to the internet, pidgin for instance.
    As soon as that happens, the whole system freezes. The open source radeon driver works flawlessly though.
    I haven't found any solution for that problem. so I hope anyone of you DOES have a solution.

    Looking forward
