    Well, it's only 6 months wait. xD
    I've been using ATI since the Rage 128 Pro days, so if I have to wait another 6 months for a stable, good open source driver, it's a drop in the bucket ^^

    What do you mean? ATI cards run an excellent virtual 1200x000 screen (VESA) as is. However, I would like for this driver to work; I can blame myself for picking Fedora 8 test 2 (libstdc++.so.6 and no .5 for such things as Opera and these ATI drivers, yet!) Anyone know how to fake it? Load libstdc++ 5 source from Fedora 7 and recompile the kernel and libc?

    I do not use Fedora, but look for a package named libstdc++-v3. No need to recompile anything after installing that one. But as you seem to run at 64-Bit you might want to have a look at this thread, too.

    You need to install compat-libstdc++, search for it with Pirut or yum.

    I think that Michael will be very careful with announcements after the "fiasco" with the last version of the driver

    Default ATI Driver with Fedora 7 : compatibility problems

    Hi,

    I'm new on this forum (and also quite new to Linux).

    I have a problem with my display and I looking for help.

    My problem = for a particular application, ANSYS-CFX software, the screen looks fuzzy. There are extra lines everywhere. I can't work.
    For everything else, it's Ok. But I want this application to work properly.

    Is there some other driver that can effectively replace the ATI driver ?
    Any Linux default driver ?
    My /etc/X11/xorg.conf file has a line with

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Videocard0"
    Driver "fglrx"
    Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
    Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
    EndSection

    I saw other people running with radeon replacing fglrx and it works. How can I do that ?

    Here are some of my systems info
    --------------------------------------
    Laptop : IBM ThinkPad T60
    Linux Fedora 7
    graphic card : ATI X1400

    driver = fglrx 8.40.4

    Installation with rpm
    > rpm -qa | grep -i xorg-x11-drv
    > xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-8.40.4-2.lvn7
    ----------------------------------------

    Radeon can't replace fglrx for the R500/X1000 series. You have an X1400. The RadeonHD driver will be the open-source version, however, it's not ready for production usage yet.
