Hi all, i'm trying today 8.42.3 drivers on KUbuntu Gutsy, first problem: fglrxinfo/glxinfo reports Opengl correctly:
Code:
alex@montreal:~$ fglrxinfo
display: :0.0  screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI RADEON 9600 Series
OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 Release
while Catalyst control center reports:
Code:
OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI RADEON 9600 Series
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.2.1)
MAybe it's just a little bug in the control center

Video Playback: after
Code:
aticonfig --initial --overlay-type=Xv
and
Code:
Option "TexturedVideo" "True"
in my xorg.conf and COMPIZ-FUSION running ,my xserver crashes when playing a video file/DVB broadcast, when (rarely) it doesn't crash i get teared/corrupted video playback on the screen; without
Code:
Option "TexturedVideo" "True"
i only get a blue output instead of the actual video file output; however if I set in compiz "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" i get video output ONLY in fulscreen mode.

Without compiz running I have no problems with video playback. Anyone having similar problems? Bye

Ale
