    I have not been able to work around it...I've just been living with the watermark (hopefully temporarily) - which is even more of a pain at times because some window- or video-related event will eventually cause the watermark to get all garbled, and then I can't even see through it anymore.

    That's awesome - I had to change the last ')' to 'done', but other than that, it worked. I now have 4 square inches of my screen back.

    Now...if only I could get the colour depth work right.

    For reference, here's the script posted in that forum:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    DRIVER=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
    for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6
    }'); do
     echo found $x
     sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
    done

    That's my script, there is no new line before }.

    Ok...much appreciated. Fortunately, the newline doesn't seem to have caused a problem for me (that's how it looks in the arch linux forum at least).

    Should I bother restoring the original lib, and re-running the script without the newline?

    Default undefined symbol: DPMSEnabledSwitch

    I bought the new ASUS with the ATI MOBILITY RADEON 5730.
    I install debian squeeze amd64 with vesa driver!

    i follow this forum and try the 'install-fglrx-debian.sh'
    compilation/installation is ok
    when X restart i have this message :

    (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
    dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so: undefined symbol: DPMSEnabledSwitch
    (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so

    like another member, i just want to begin with resolution 1600x900
    because vesa limit : 1152x864 on 16/9 screen !! is not very nice

    thanks

    Currently squeeze is not supported by my script because ati did not officially release a working driver as installer, but the fglrx driver is in the repository, so do:
    Code:
    rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
    apt-get remove --purge $(dpkg -l|awk '/fglrx|libamd/{print $2}')
    apt-get --yes install fglrx-driver fglrx-modules-dkms fglrx-glx fglrx-atieventsd fglrx-control
    aticonfig --initial --nobackup
    Then reboot.

    Could you write step by step guide for this? I'm using Squeeze amd64 and belive me or not but not all packages you wrote up there are in repos.

    Thanks in advance.
