    WOW, for a moment I thought I can watch video files smoothly, but i can't.
    And this crappy "testing only" -- I can safely assure you that the transparent stripes, that I used to talk about here and this sign are, totally related.

    A masterpiece it is

    the build and install was straightforward, and it's running and
    working on my Fedora 7 system. but XVideo isn't working, and neither
    is OpenGL(seems to be using the Mesa library).

    Any errors in your /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

    Default World of Warcraft isn't working with 8.39.4

    It is hanging when trying to enter the World, and I get this error on my terminal:

    fglX11AllocateManagedSurface: __FGLTexMgrAllocMem failed!!

    The Xorg.0.log file is interesting:

    (II) fglrx(0): Depth moves disabled by default
    (==) fglrx(0): Capabilities: 0x00000000
    (==) fglrx(0): CapabilitiesEx: 0x00000000
    (**) fglrx(0): cpuFlags: 0x8000001d
    (==) fglrx(0): OpenGL ClientDriverName: "fglrx_dri.so"
    (**) fglrx(0): ATI GART size: 128 MB

    (**) fglrx(0): UseFastTLS=2
    (==) fglrx(0): BlockSignalsOnLock=1
    (==) fglrx(0): EnablePrivateBackZ = NO

    Call me suspicious, but "0xdeadbeef" doesn't look like a valid handle to me!

    Michael,

    for XVideo, i have:

    (II) Loading extension XVideo
    (II) Loading extension XVideo-MotionCompensation


    and nothing more than that. but that message indicates that it
    should work.


    for openGL, this may be something:

    (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so failed (/usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so: undefined symbol: __glXFindDRIScreen)
    (EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
    (II) Loading local sub module "GLcore"
    (II) LoadModule: "GLcore"
    (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libGLcore.so
    (II) Module GLcore: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
    compiled for 1.3.0, module version = 1.0.0
    ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3
    (II) GLX: Initialized MESA-PROXY GL provider for screen 0


    ...


    (EE) DoSwapInterval: cx = 0xa33f620, GLX screen = 0x9585d20
    (EE) AIGLX: cx->pGlxScreen->swapInterval == NULL


    ---

    let me know if you'd like the entire log file.


    thanks,
    sam

    Default "Dazed and confused"???

    I have found this message in my kernel log:

    ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:01:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
    Uhhuh. NMI received for unknown reason b1 on CPU 0.
    You have some hardware problem, likely on the PCI bus.
    Dazed and confused, but trying to continue

    I haven't enabled NMI because it makes the laptop's ACPI video functionality hang, so I don't know where this NMI came from.

    DarkFoss,

    i have my resolution at 1600x1200 with 8.39.4. is the proper Modes
    set in your xorg.conf? eg..


    Code:
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]"
            Device     "aticonfig-Device[0]"
            Monitor    "aticonfig-Monitor[0]"
            DefaultDepth     24
            SubSection "Display"
                    Viewport   0 0
                    Depth     24
                    Modes    "1600x1200"         <<-- my default
            EndSubSection
    EndSection

    Driver works fine here on Fedora Rawhide with Kernel "2.6.21-1.3244.fc8".


    ...i can not test the recent kernel, 2.6.23-0.30.rc0.git6.fc8, because of a "kernel panic"
