My laptop's RS690 (X1250) doesn't work at 1680x1050 anymore either.. ):
Very happy with this new driver release. I have a dual boot with an ubuntu feisty and a Linux Mint 4.0, and I don't succeed to install it.
First, on the Linux Mint (based on gutsy), a problem with the replacement of compiz-manager ... xdg, and I cannot remove one of the package now.
Second, on the feisty, after running the package creation, I got :
dh_install -pxorg-driver-fglrx "debian/compiz-manager" "etc/xdg/compiz"
cp: cannot stat `./debian/compiz-manager': No such file or directory
Thank you ATI for this very nice christmas present. At least, I succeed to install the previous version.
Edit : I have relaunched the download of the installer, maybe mine was rotten.

seems like this driver solves alot of my old problems as well, but brings up problems that a few others have already indicated...
using a Radeon X1600 512MB AGP
- VLC crashes if OpenGL output is used.
- Lost use of 1680x1050 res, so the display (LCD Widescreen) is all blurry like the inside of a cataract.
otherwise, seems like this driver would be great, but seems like the devs have dropped the ball yet again, as not using my full res , and losing ability to use OpenGL is a big showstopper.
I guess hoping for a good driver was just too much.
Running ustunts and exiting it again results in a X server restart, great...
You HAVE to be kidding. 1680x1050 isn't working? That could explain my problem.
I'm sick of this, it might be time to remove Linux.
Modelines don't work either. I'm thinking of rolling back to the 7.11s. I mean, these drivers seem to have good performance and much better stability in games (no more segmentation faults in Nexuiz ), but running a 4:3 resolution on a 16:10 monitor can make eyes bleed.
1680 x 1050 is working for me with an Acer 22" LCD
