    question! where's that TexturedVideo fix?

    things are just as ugly as they were in 8.36-8.38 ?

    It should be fixed unless another regression got in...

    On my machine running:

    Code:
    echo "1a12e6c2f7e613b887d92e943a40799e:223cd5fbc4c82295b7ee1ea30b7818b32a27d6f5cfd75095c68d67b409754faa2927:2820d5a193d375dae4ed4dac087240ab782583a7c683728bb7bb19ac0b781bad2873d4f593d0758de4bf4aa30f7040ab7924dea6c1d1718cb7e019a10e2618ff282bd4f5" > /etc/ati/signature
    as root and restarting X fixes the problem (ie. gets rid of the testing release logo).

    (The signature string was found via:
    Code:
    head -n 300 ati-driver-installer-8.39.4-x86.x86_64.run | egrep "signature="
    Which gives back:
    Code:
    signature="1a12e6c2f7e613b887d92e943a40799e:223cd5fbc4c82295b7ee1ea30b7818b32a27d6f5cfd75095c68d67b409754faa2927:2820d5a193d375dae4ed4dac087240ab782583a7c683728bb7bb19ac0b781bad2873d4f593d0758de4bf4aa30f7040ab7924dea6c1d1718cb7e019a10e2618ff282bd4f5"

    Hi, Thanks for this man!

    i did your workaround and it worked on my Ubuntu 7.04 64 bits.

    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.

    @Maze:

    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.
