    Unhappy

    Here's something weird that happens with 10.10, that I've never seen before: 10.10 seems to somehow limit my backlight brightness to something like 25% or 50% of the maximum brightness. In fact, it had me worried that my inverter was failing, until I booted Windows and found that not to be affected.

    Edit: switching to TTY makes it bright again, so maybe it's not the backlight, after all...

    Damn 1-minute limit... whoever did that should have all his pencils be confiscated, forever -- let's force him to write with pen for the rest of his life.

    Anyway, it looks like "Deep Bit Depth Pixel" was to blame -- it somehow downscaled the max RGB value, or such. Oddly enough, the Xorg log still claimed 24-bit color depth!

    What is Deep Bit Depth Pixel supposed to really do, anyway? I'd imagine it's about 30-bit displays, but does anyone have any more info than that?

    xorg log says:
    (==) fglrx(0): NoAccel = NO
    [ 52.229] (**) fglrx(0): ATI 2D Acceleration Architecture enabled
    [ 52.229] (--) fglrx(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series" (Chipset = 0x9442)

    why does the desktop felel incredible slow in comparison to the open source drivers and why does direct2d not work in browsers like with mesa?

    Catalyst 10.10 has major bugs with wine on ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit). The regression is that multiple models are not being rendered and are invisible.... see the following bug report:
    http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1942

    Tested Games: (all use similar rendering api )
    Alien Swarm (wine v1.2.1 only, but still shows regression)
    Left 4 Dead (Wine v1.2.1 and 1.3.5 where both tested on this)
    Left 4 Dead 2 (wine v1.2.1 only, but still shows regression)

    Alien Swarm picture is exactly how EverQuest has been looking..only the text issue seems to have been mostly fixed..some missing at the log-in screen but looks ok once in-game.. Characters are either invisible or partially empty suits of armor.
