    Just been experimenting with this driver on a V5250 (pci id hacked).

    Not good
    - 2nd screen will only run at 1024 x 768 instead of 1600x1200
    - blank screen after suspend

    8.35 appears to work better.

    Big disappointment. Best not get my hopes up too much for 8.43

    If anyone does get a good mobile config up and running (even without Xgl/AIGLX) I'd be interested, but I've now gone back to 8.35. Not perfect but best so far... (on laptop)

    Whoa, just went back to the ATI open source driver. Performance difference (with compiz) is like day and night. Heck, even HD video performance with compiz is pretty good with the open-source driver. And suspend is actually working there. If the open source driver didn't freeze X on this mobility X300 every few hours, I could actually stay with it.

    I hope the AMD proprietary driver becomes as good as the open source driver soon (sounds like a joke)! Hopefully the next one will deliver some performance improvements and suspend fixes.
