compiz + opengl + mplayer works without tearing. And yes, it works with compositing on.
It is very important to use mplayer, which is the only media player i know of, that makes fglrx render the video in a direct rendered window instead of in a indirect rendered window (you will get tearing).
Also should be noted, that you have to enable vsync always through amdcccle.
What happens if you try to use VLC for your video player?
But now I get:
The make.log file:Code:Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 2.6.34-020634-generic (x86_64) Consult the make.log in the build directory /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.732/build/ for more information.
Really freaking strange, because uname -a matches that kernel number and the kernel and headers installs went off without a hitch.Code:DKMS make.log for fglrx-8.732 for kernel 2.6.34-020634-generic (x86_64) Fri Jun 4 03:18:58 PDT 2010 AMD kernel module generator version 2.1 cat: /lib/modules/2.6.34-020634-generic/build/include/linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory Error: kernel includes at /lib/modules/2.6.34-020634-generic/build/include do not match current kernel. they are versioned as "" instead of "2.6.34-020634-generic". you might need to adjust your symlinks: - /usr/include - /usr/src/linux
Did you run into any of these issues? If so, how did you fix them?
Just noticed there's a new fglrx build in 6 hours with this in the log: "Add patch from Arch to enable support for 2.6.34 kernels." so maybe I try again in the morning.
Btw what fix from above are you talking about?
karmic build is still broken with:IIRC the "fix" should be in one of the 10.4 threads..Code:execstack: cannot open "debian/fglrx-amdcccle/usr/lib/bin/amdcccle": No such file or directory
I'm also betting that their CCC privilege escalation app/script is still MIA as well...
why am I not surprised?
