save your hopes for radeonhd and open source world, amd will never provide anything good. how long have we been waiting? how can you still believe in a *better* tomorrow?

Well this new driver hasn't changed much for me with my ATI HD 2400XT card. Scrolling in firefox seems remotely faster but my biggest problem is the screen going black for 2 secs (almost as if the x-server is crashing) every time I load a video in any player or in firefox via the mplayerplug-in. This problem started with the 8.42.3 driver.
Uhm, gusy, i think they've planning to release their drivers at the same time as the windows driver, so to get rid of the number mess, with driver numbers everywhere
so, i think this is a just completed stuff released, who knows. ?
Who else thinks AMD should give up on fglrx development; and just work on sanitizing specs for the guys at novell faster?
"No Video playback is allowed on second head". Pathetic. Heres for still chuggin on 8.40!
Dottout: I have great patience. I've waited years for ATI (now ATI/AMD) to bring themselves to the top of their game with regards to their closed source. I'll keep waiting too. For now.
Now, the one thing I do note in the fairly unimpressive driver release docs is the inclusion of official Ubuntu 7.10 support. (early look it says). The question I then is:
Does it allow for Step 1 type installation? For those who don't know what I mean, I mean simply running the installer and installing it using the graphical user interface without doing the Step 2 commandline compile and install.
Fine. On 7.11 if I enable TV-out the max refresh rate I got is 60Hz. With the previous driver it was 85Hz.
The X-Video problem when running compiz exists for any driver that uses Xorg's direct rendering infrastructure, so I'm not inclined to think that this is a fglrx issue, which may be why you're not seeing mentioned in the release notes.

Corrected, the support ended up landing late in the development cycle.
