question! where's that TexturedVideo fix?
things are just as ugly as they were in 8.36-8.38 ?
i was actually hoping that that was a decent fglrx release.
how stupid of me.
On my machine running:
as root and restarting X fixes the problem (ie. gets rid of the testing release logo).Code:echo "1a12e6c2f7e613b887d92e943a40799e:223cd5fbc4c82295b7ee1ea30b7818b32a27d6f5cfd75095c68d67b409754faa2927:2820d5a193d375dae4ed4dac087240ab782583a7c683728bb7bb19ac0b781bad2873d4f593d0758de4bf4aa30f7040ab7924dea6c1d1718cb7e019a10e2618ff282bd4f5" > /etc/ati/signature
(The signature string was found via:
Which gives back:Code:head -n 300 ati-driver-installer-8.39.4-x86.x86_64.run | egrep "signature="
what's the point of hardcoded signature ?
i thought it does not work between different machines?
i've had enough of fglrx. i'm putting my old x300 back in, and i'm going for opensource driver.
Your fix worked only partly since now the logo only shows "Unsupported Hardware", as it really is the case since I looked at Xorg.0.log and my X1950XT is not recognized - a thing that didn't happen with the previous release...
I run a x86_64 gentoo system.
The corrected driver should be out next week.
Another ridiculous driver release by ATI/AMD... At least I wasn't expecting anything this time (to be honest I wasn't expecting such a lame bug as this watermark issue here).
My Ubuntu release is still running on 8.28 drivers... I don't have any reason to upgrade to any of the newer releases, and take risks on going from something that works to a newer driver that may be even worse than what I got now.
Considering that now ATI is releasing grossly bugged drivers, I guess we shouldn't expect important things like AIGLX support soon right?
I wish my notebook had nVidia GFX.
Wrong. I bet the new OpenGL driver will do more than speed it all up, it could also fix problems people have. And it'll come before 2008.Considering that now ATI is releasing grossly bugged drivers, I guess we shouldn't expect important things like AIGLX support soon right?
