    Tried out the latest Ubuntu 10.10 with the accompanying fglrx drivers and found that it is not any better for my Radeon HD 3450 video card. In fact, in some respects it has gotten worse.

    Perhaps someone can lead me to an appropriate xorg.conf that can correct the video tearing and jerking?

    ATi miracle? The only miracle I see here is that no one has committed suicide yet.

    ATi drivers are pure FAIL. Stop poking the dead horse already, its not going to get up.

    I can't see any problems anymore. HoN is working with Evergreen cards, 2D and 3D performance seems to be increased, no artifacts, Notebook with Mobility HD3200 is also working without any problems.

    So whats the reason for flaming?

    Do you have a customized xorg.conf? To date I have not had a fix for these problems. [vidoe tearing, video and game jerking]

    The open source driver is the only thing keeping AMD afloat on the linux desktop. It's always been clear ATI only cared about workstation graphics on linux. AMD's efforts to open source the driver have helped Desktop graphics ten fold.

    I don't expect the FGLRX userbase to stick around when Gallium3d for r600-r800 is stable and mildly polished.

    Hey that's good to know. Currently I am using the radeon driver.

    Basically, as I have believed for a long time, the only solution to this problem is to buy another video card and make sure it is a NVIDIA.

    Thanks for the xorg.conf post. Do you have any problems with video tearing or jerking? Also, what is the type of your video card?

    There really does not look like anything out of the ordinary though.

    I have a HD5770 in my desktop pc and a Mobility HD3200 in my notebook. With both I have no video problems (no tearing or jerking). The only problem that I sometimes have is, that HoN sometimes start to be very slow, if Pidgin blinks for a new message in the background. But I can't recreate this problem, because sometimes the problem is there and sometimes not.
