    In a few places in your script there seems to be some Diff stuck in rather than applied. Not sure if that's intentional, but thought I'd mention it just in case it isn't.

    Yeah! If all of what AMD said was true, I would not have any problems. But according to their release notes (for the last 21 months), the bugs I'm complaining about don't even exist.

    As it stands right now, if this shows to be the debacle that it is currently shaping up to be, I can't recommend anything different than I do right now, which is NVidia on anything except the G80 series chips, Intel if you don't have a heavy 3D load you need to support.

    IF they get this straightened out or the specs we get prove out to be useful, this might change. But I'm not holding my breath- I like the color blue, just not on my skin.

    It is supported, yes. It is part of the Radeon HD 2000 series. I just haven't tried the Mobility version myself but it is supported.

    I tried out the new driver on a Mobility Radeon X1400 even though it's not recommended. Same old issues that I've had before:

    Xv - completely corrupt and crashes the whole x-server
    X-server crashes on logout or restart

    and the video tearing on Opengl output that I managed to fix with the fglrxrc file has returned and is worse than ever even though the fglrxrc file is unchanged.

    It's a new day, but still the same old issues with fglrx. I don't hold much hope for the new open source driver either which will probably crippled. Just goes to show that marketing speak and technical reality are often miles apart. All in all a great disappointment.

    Is is strange cause on ati site , they make a difference between radeon hd 2400 series ans mobility radeon h 2400 series , so why not in the release note


    So i m going to try it on my comp today and of course i will notice here my results , thanks

    hehe. Yeah, I tried that first thing after installing the new driver. Well actually I lie. I did fglrxinfo first (it didn't mention the driver number). I then did glxgears. Weird when you close it.

    X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).
