fglrx needs more monkeys.
let's hope that these are different monkeys than those preparing the specs
Goddam you people bitch.

There's nothing more irritating than having some jerk on a forum snidely drop the "go buy an Nvidia card" comment every time someone has an ATI-related graphics problem.

You're suggesting that all of these people throw their whole PC away and get something else, because there are bugs in a driver?
Can we get some sort of ruling from the mods on this? Maybe a total moratorium on these "get an nvidia, tee hee" sophomoric comments?

That said, Michael do you have the 7.12 beta driver allready? Do you have an AGP -> PCI-e card? and can atleast let us faintly know if we finally get to use our Rialto based cards?

Is powerstate switching when in dual head mode just not possible (by definition), or is this just a restriction made by the driver?
Or is this maybe r400 specific and would work on newer chips?
