    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.

    Oh and btw. I am able to use gmplayer as a frontend to mplayer also. It still renders through mplayer.

    What happens if you try to use VLC for your video player?

    And use the fix from above!

    Maybe it helps!
    Yes, I'm using 10.04 64. I did a fresh install and added the ppa for x-swat. Marked fglrx, amdcccle, modaliases, and all the other associated packages for upgrade. fglrx and amdcccle failed complaining about not being able to apply the arch_fglrx_2.6.34.patch. Was able to resolve that from here:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1496724

    But now I get:
    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.
    The make.log file:
    Code:
    DKMS make.log for fglrx-8.732 for kernel 2.6.34-020634-generic (x86_64)

    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
    Really freaking strange, because uname -a matches that kernel number and the kernel and headers installs went off without a hitch.

    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:
    Code:
    execstack: cannot open "debian/fglrx-amdcccle/usr/lib/bin/amdcccle": No such file or directory
    IIRC the "fix" should be in one of the 10.4 threads..

    I'm also betting that their CCC privilege escalation app/script is still MIA as well...

    why am I not surprised?
    MSI GT725-074US:
    Intel Core 2 Duo P8600, 4GB DDR2-800, 320GB 7200RPM WDC WD3200BEKT-22F3T0, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3, 8x Super multi DVD+/-RW, 1680x1050 (17"), 9 cell battery

    Ubuntu 8.10 x86-64 (current updates) catalyst 9.3
    Windows Vista Home Premium 32b SP1 (current update) still on shipped catalyst(8.12 I think, MSI packed -- lazy)
