did anybody try this yet?
after installing this unity doesnt launch and if a launch compiz manually i have black squares all over the place.
iirc it is mplayer 33025 patched with mplayer-vaapi 20110127.
It was always working fine for me, also with catalyst 10.3.
Does it mean that vaapi works fine for you?Code:$ vainfo libva: libva version 0.32.0 Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0". libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0 libva: Trying to open /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_drv_video.so libva: va_openDriver() returns 0 vainfo: VA API version: 0.32 vainfo: Driver version: Splitted-Desktop Systems XvBA backend for VA-API - 0.7.8 vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints VAProfileH264High : VAEntrypointVLD VAProfileVC1Advanced : VAEntrypointVLD
works fine here, compiz and wobbly windows aswell. ati 5770
but using ubuntu classic session instead of that unity stuff.
at least finally amd..i waited so long to upgrade
Does the libgl redirection mean fglrx will now play nicely with the FOSS driver? Previously, having fglrx installed meant you couldn't launch X with the "radeon" driver.
With a mobility radeon HD2600 + Arch x86_64 or a HD4650AGP + Arch i686, both my systems gave me a CPU/FPU error (or something alike) when running mplayer-vaapi via console (to play a 1080p mkv sample)... (it was the first time my HD4650AGP didn't work with VAAPI).
As a consequence, I downgraded both drivers and Xorg server versions, and now everything's working fine again (HD2600 + Catalyst 10.7 and HD4650 + Catalyst 11.2)...
I tried with the usual "aticonfig --initial" to create a config file, then ran startx, I got this
[ 17.098] (II) Loading sub module "fglrxdrm"
[ 17.098] (II) LoadModule: "fglrxdrm"
[ 17.099] (WW) Warning, couldn't open module fglrxdrm
[ 17.099] (II) UnloadModule: "fglrxdrm"
[ 17.099] (II) Unloading fglrxdrm
The fglrx kernel module itself is loaded fine though. This was the case both when using the package I compiled myself and the Ubuntu Natty repository one. Anyone any clue as to what's happening here?
