April is nearing its end
are there any recent news about the official 10.4 catalyst driver ?
I don't care about the Ubuntu-provided one since it doesn't work for me properly and keeps on segfaulting with error 7 when trying to run anything other than googleearth
Ubuntu / Lucid Lynx runs ridiculously slow for me, keeps the CPU load at a minimum while keeping the harddrive decently rattling all the time (self-tests ?!) on purpose prolongating everything and thus driving me crazy due to ruining my work-flow
besides that minimizing and maximizing with compositing is slow again (did they drop the non-included backclear patch which wasn't supposed to be included in the first place ?), you can't "remove" usb-hardware e.g. via: echo 1 > /sys/bus/usb/devices/2-1.6/remove - hence no standby if that usb-hardware can't be disabled and keeps the cpu from going to sleeping
hopefully it works otherwise I'll be forced to wait some time until the opensource drivers (I'd currently prefer much more the binary drivers due to their UVD2, powermanagement, etc. support)
