    Does it work if you use amdcccle or manually specify the mode in xorg.conf?

    my xorg.conf section

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]"
    Device "aticonfig-Device[0]"
    Monitor "aticonfig-Monitor[0]"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1680x1050"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    I'm having the same issues with screen resolutions. Both on my laptop and desktop, fglrx does not let me use any wide screen resolutions.

    For me:
    - No change in single or dual head mode
    - Mode lines in Xorg.conf are ignored (as per release notes)
    - Any xrandr foo doesn't work
    - Nothing in amdcccle allows fixing the resolution

    I'm on a mobility x1600 also, and can't even get a downgrade to work right now.

    <frustrated>
    New laptop for the new year, and at this rate it is certainly not going to contain an AMD/ATI card

    Angry

    Scrolling is still unbearably slow, and causes 100% CPU usage - in both Firefox and gnome-terminal. My card is a Mobility Radeon 9700.

    yeah!
    I'm very happy, this will be a Great Christmas!
    The driver is wonderful! Everything works!

    - AIGLX and compiz still slow, firefox unusable.
    - Now vlc crashes if I select opengl output
    - With other outputs and AIGLX set to on, it's the world of flickers
    - I don't want to test zsnes and xmame with opengl... I already know it's useless.

    Please Santa Claus, bring me an nvidia and I will give you a radeon 9600 .
