    since 9-11 xvba is broken, no change with 9-12.

    Sigh. No Xorg 7.5

    I'd say more but that about sums up my feelings.

    Ah, well, I probably wont bother installing it for a while then.

    Maybe a new xvba release will fix it soon?

    Looks like they broke compiz blur again... Thats like the only feature I care about!! Not seeing any compelling reasons to upgrade over 9.11 anyway. Might have to hold off.

    asus 4850 ubuntu 9.10 x64

    And one more thing! Why is the driver NOT overriding my Anti aliasing settings and AS for my games? I play Urban terror and it looks like crap anyway, I figure a little AA would help. Maybe from using compiz and playing the game at the same time...

    A "fix" would require work, do you really think ATI works on xvba? I don't. I know so many problems with xvba that i replaced my card on my system which i use for watching movies by a GT220. I updated the gfx firmware to make it more stable which increases the lowest fan speed from 25% to 40% but this still is not that loud. Of course i noticed problems with this card too - many in the vdpau-video wrapper but still no fix is available. This does not matter much for me as mplayer+vdpau works much better. As xvba is low priority for endusers a card replacement is REALLY the only way to get something working now - and the future as long as cpus do not fully handle 1080p with ease at high bitrates - i guess this will be at about 4 ghz for 48 mbit single core. So how are the bets what happens before? 4 ghz default clock for 50 € cpus or a working xvba implementation from ATI?

    Buy a 50 cpu and over-clock them to 4ghz shows me to be the better way than buy an nvidia GPU!

    Yes the FGLRX isn'T perfect and fglrx can't ever be perfect!

    the open-source driver radeon brings Hope for a better Linux driver.

    the only thing i miss on radeon is the fact that wine needs OpenGL3.2

    for the native linux games openGL 2 brings 99% of all games to work on the radeon driver.
