    Hardy Heron up to date - Catalyst 8.1 from repo - no Compiz yet due the Xserver 1.4 compat but:

    2D capabilities are heavily improved over 7.12 - I test this with Inkscape ( great use of Blur filter )

    Also 3D present some very good performance vs 7.12 (visible with the free look) - I tested with Quake Wars, Quake 4 and True Combat Elite.

    On Ctrl + ALt + Backspace => Blank screen + Freeze

    This is my experience with 8.1 on HD3850 Hardware.

    On Ubuntu 7.10 everything including Compiz works as expected. Video playback does have a lot of tearing with or without Compiz.

    I cannot use Control-Alt Backspace to restart X. It locks up every time.

    On a side note. Compiz looks much better than it did on the Nvidia 6800GS that I replaced with this card.

    Hi,
    I finally managed to build the rpm packages here on my Fedora 8 using modified scripts from phorogit.
    Now I've installed them, loaded the fglrx module, restarted X with the same working xorg.conf I had before and the result of $fglrxinfo is

    Code:
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: http://www.mesa3d.org
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
    OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)
    
    Segmentation Fault
    I suspect something went wrong, but I really can't figure it out... I rebuilt-reinstalled the rpms but it didn't help.

    i've given up on using 8.01.... i've tried it and tried to fix the libc.so.6 error in many ways but i haven't been able to do it.... now i've switched to the radeon driver, at least for the x200m, and i'm quite happy with it. the 8.01 is really a delusion. this is the first release after 8.41 that doesn't work on the x200m....

    I have no problem installing this driver but it is incompatible with one of my video card.

    The HD2600 pro 512M AGP is not compatible with this driver nor is it with any other even radeonHD!! I'M stuck with vesa in Linux! I know for a fact that this driver work very well with the PCIE version of this video card.

    Description of problem.

    When X start the screen go Black and the keyboard die. Yes I really said that the keyboard die! Impossible to light on the led light for Num, Caps, or scroll. Everything is frozen.

    My best guess is that the driver configured my card has a PCIE card instead of an AGP card. I reallllly hope that ATI/AMD fix this compatibility issue fast before I give up on this card.

    Default Thanks Legume

    Thanks Legume,
    using gl as the output module for mplayer is a great workaround!

    My experience with the fglrx 8.45(ATI Catalyst 8.1 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver) on openSUSE 10.3

    1) Being a lnux noob I installed the latest driver from the ATI openSUSE repo.

    2) Tried fgl_gears after install and got segment fault error

    3) logged in as root and issued the command init 3

    4) ldconfig(I don't know if that is necessary)

    5) aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf

    6) sax2 -r -m 0=fglrx (to configure extra settings)

    7) reboot

    Everything worked fine! Only problem I can't change the gamma directly in RTCW - Enemy Territory(had this problem since fglrx 8.41+ with 8.40 I could change the gamma in game) but only by setting gamma in ATI Catalyst Control Centre first then launching the game.

    Oh by the way I have Kernel 2.6.22.16 installed and I'm using the ATI X300 Mobility on an Inspiron 6000.

    ive been using 8.01 for a day now ... and to my surprise I found myself forgetting I had been trying it.

    Id been using 8.40 still with XGL (and im not saying i wouldnt go back), but the only issues I run into with 8.45 are:

    - kxdocker is slow as hell, but i suspect this is bad coding

    - video playback and other opengl apps dont draw properly when using compiz, but isnt that an AIGLX/compiz thing ? i think i has nothing to do with catalyst.

    for the rest, compiz seems more or less just as smooth, i have no scrolling problems or anyhintg like that ...

    so if they can only fix the opengl/video compiz issues, that optimize the code so that it gets smoother and smoother, then all will be fine.

    I have to admit however, that I am no gamer, and I havent tried anything really extensive on the driver, yet.

    Sooner or later i guess newer releases will feature more speed and less breakage ..

    Angry Radeon 9600 pro dualhead is broken

    Once again I'm going to be reverting back to an old driver because the latest one is stuffed.

    I'm running dualhead with big desktop on Ubuntu 7.10 and the second monitor on the VGA port is only showing a max resolution of 1024x768.

    Previously it worked fine at 1280x1024, using 8.43 wtf is going on.

    Here's my xorg.conf for those that might be able to help.

    # /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
