    So now I'm on Windows and absolutely had it with Linux now (for one week probably untill I get absolutely fed up with Win$hit Xperience Pain xD) just because I want to play a simple game of Quake Live that does not go over the freaking soft-pipe with 0.33fps

    Anyway thank you for all your time and I hope I can get warrenty on my HD4870x2 (I don't know if I have this card for over or less than a year, so... )
    o man i'm so sorry.

    can you please post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /etc/x11/xorg.conf

    Default RMA

    Yea, that is a pity man, hope you can rma the card.

    I experienced like symptoms on a powercolor hd4870.
    It is rma now, the reseller tested the card and confirmed it was broken.
    Mine would freeze at stock memory speeds; both in windows and linux.

    I bought a sapphire to replace it and that is fine.
    Now i am only waiting for the reseller to send the other card back.

    Hahaha are you serious? :P It is not a human being xD Besides, I can still do real life stuff with the IGP, so it's just a luxury problem

    Yeah sure, but why? I already took out the card and removed the xorg-diver-fglrx so would these files be of any use? If you want this out of curiosity, for testing purposes or driver development or whatever I wouldn't mind reinstalling the card and posting the logs

    Oops :P *I'm blond* xD (blond hair means you're stupid in my country, don't know if this is international...)

    Yeah I will try that now, although upon trying to download a Windows driver for the HD3300 series from the ATI website it said that this was not supported by AMD itself and I could only get it from OEM...

    PS: The xorg-driver-fglrx file is 89.9MB and it's from the Kubuntu repo's, is this Catalyst 9.10? Might the Kubuntu repo's not be different from the Ubuntu repo's and therefore the xorg-driver-fglrx driver not 9.10 yet? :S

    Looks like you're running the driver which was released with Ubuntu 9.04, ie an early version of the Catalyst 9.4 driver.

    Yeah but I did #aptitude dist-upgrade and so I'm also running KDE4.3 now. But how do I fix this? =x
    Should I just install 9.10 from a live image? I don't want to risk trashing my entire HDD with alpha software and 9.8 doesn't work either =x

    there server needs time to sync english server has the driver first germans 1 day later..

    if you DU to 9.10 you sould also make a apt-get dist-upgrade -f apt-get install -f

    purge the old driver if you can apt-get purge xorg-fglrx....

    and then reinstall the newdriver apt-get install.

    you also can get the files from the server by hand and use dpkg -i

    i think your problem is the "old" driver the 9.10 in ubuntu 9.10 is not make for an clean upgrade or the old one is broken.

    Please install a fresh clean ubuntu 9.10 and install the FGLRX from the repo and you will see it works!

    Default Update

    Great! I got an RMA number

    It's outside of warrenty but I can send it back. If the card is confirmed to be broken by the store than I get a free replacement + mail cost ^^,

    I haven't tried the 9.10 driver for Ubuntu yet, but I am currently busy with OpenCL under Windows with the ATI Stream shizzle anyway so I get back to Linux whenever Gallium + OpenCL state tracker for a n00b distro lands :P
