Yeah right. I can use compiz on my system, but that is not my concern now, I need to use my garphic cards capabilities. I think it could be nicer of ATI if they drop support for the older cards when the open source drivers reach to fruition. I don't mean they should have coped with lots of difficulties to update drivers for the non unified shader (If I recall correctly), but just update a "legacy driver" (probably based on catalyst 9.3) to be able to be installed on newer kernels and Xs...@Klaus: really X1400 isn't supported by fglrx anymore. Sad but true. The open-source drivers should work fine with your hardware, but GLSL is not up to par yet, opengl works fine up to v1.5 functionality I think.
