    Right. The only connection between the new acceleration in fglrx (A2AA) and Direct2D is that the fglrx developers re-used a test option left over from Direct2D development to enable the new accel code before it became on by default.

    The Direct2D acceleration API in fglrx is completely different from the Windows API, and it's used internally only (to increase the speed of XRender).
    well but direct2d does work as soon as i switch to r600g.
    everythings runs almost at fast as on windows then.

    I just installed the 10.10 on SUSE 11.3 64 bit ( Asus HD 5750 )

    I can't open the control center. from the desktop.

    Solved the FF scrolling problem, by turning off smooth scrolling in FF.

    Perhaps the same setting is enabling XRender acceleration after all, then. But it's definitely not Direct2D. That's like calling the layers acceleration Direct3D when it's actually using OpenGL.

    try to compile with these files, they worked for me, i cant link a patch because the patch that i found didnt work with the latest catalyst, so i had to manually patch these it
    Would someone repost the files. The link is no longer available.

    Thanks!

    I see no libEGL or libGLESv2 here! Even checking "strings" returns nothing relevant for any of the files in the package.
    egrep 'glesx|GLESX' /var/log/Xorg.0.log returns
    Code:
    [   231.471] (II) LoadModule: "glesx"
    [   231.471] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/glesx.so
    [   231.472] (II) Module glesx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
    [   231.472] (II) Loading extension GLESX
    [   231.472] (II) fglrx(0): GLESX enableFlags = 528
    [   231.472] (II) fglrx(0): GLESX is enabled
    Is that what you're looking for?

    BTW, got a kernel update today on openSUSE 11.3 (fixing the RDS vulnerability) so I reinstalled fglrx 10.10. On first reboot I get the same FPS yoyo in Guild Wars (through WINE) as mentioned in the other fglrx 10.10 thread.
