    Default lockup issue textured video workaround helped !

    This obviously isn't a good workaround for you, since it *will* impact your xv playback, but it would be good to know if that makes a difference with the lockup.
    Thanx bridgman, this helped me, I was suffering from the lockup issue before aplying this workaround.

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "ATI RADEON X1400"
    Driver "fglrx"
    BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
    Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
    # Option "UseFastTLS" "2"
    # Option "TexturedVideo" "on"
    EndSection
    try setting to off both the overlays and see what happens in xine when using xv or opengl. see which is faster and usable (remember that 2d-tex-fragprog probably wouldn't print osds in xine and just 2d-tex does).

    Could anyone having suspend2(ram|disk) working, tell if this has been out of the box or after manual fiddling?

    I have a T60 ThinkPad with a X1400 Mobility running Kubuntu Gutsy.
    Suspend works fine with any kernel - as long as I don't have the 'fglrx' module loaded.

    Even with 8.01 it doesn't work with the distro kernel (2.6.22-14) or any manually compiled (2.6.23.14 with SLUB or with SLAB allocator).
    The system is shut down correctly but after turning it on again i get a black screen..

    Any ideas/hints?

    Nice to see that they are focussing on removing the bug. Because, as sombody already say i do not care, for the moment, for *new* capabilty. All I want is a driver wich I could consider as Functional.

    For the moment I'll stick with the old code base driver because I am a heavy user of dual-head. So as long as the dual-head bug is not resolved I will not even try *new* driver. (I did try the 7.12 though.)

    But If this continue I can hope to try it in less than 6 month, I hope ;-)

    Good job and keep it up!

    I got it working with 2.6.23.14 vanilla and SLAB allocator.

    Going to try the SLUB allocator now.
    [Update: SLUB working too]

    The trick:
    in /etc/default/acpi-support set

    SAVE_VBE_STATE=false
    POST_VIDEO=false

    The new version of the fglrx works quite fine for me. I'm running Debian unstable. Just upgrade with apt-get upgrade fglrx-driver and using module-assistant. Restart gdm X works.
    I don't suppose Xv will work but GL2 in mplayer will have to do.

    I have a resolution of 1440x900 back on my Dell Inspiron 1721 back.
    Also native amd64 OpenGL games work, like chromium and wormux.

    On the other hand do have 2 other problems.

    The biggest problems lies with wine. I guess that it can't find the required libraries.

    Using winecfg results in the following error.
    breetai@lappy:~$ winecfg
    wine: creating configuration directory '/home/breetai/.wine'...
    X Error of failed request: GLXBadContext
    Major opcode of failed request: 162 (GLX)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
    Serial number of failed request: 18
    Current serial number in output stream: 18

    running fgl_glxgears results in the following error:
    breetai@lappy:~$ fgl_glxgears
    Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
    X Error of failed request: GLXUnsupportedPrivateRequest
    Major opcode of failed request: 162 (GLX)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 16 (X_GLXVendorPrivate)
    Serial number of failed request: 41
    Current serial number in output stream: 42
    breetai@lappy:~$

    Using fgl_glxgears -fbo does work.

    Look here

    -Firefox scolling is definitly better with this option switched on.

    -In addition, turn off the firefox-option smooth scrolling.

    Both worked for me.

    OK, I've got Mobility Radeon X700 with 256M, with the 8.443 I had
    glxgears: ~4500 FPS;
    fgl_glxgears: ~930 FPS.
    After today's update to 8.45, I've got
    glxgears: ~630 FPS;
    fgl_glxgears: segfault.
    Direct rendering is also gone.
    No changes in xorg.conf whatsoever.

    Few of the more interesting lines from my Xorg.0.log:

    Before You ask, I'm running Fedora 8 with 2.6.23.9-85.fc8
    I also run metacity 2.21.5, but that worked fine with 8.443
    Scrolling in Firefox is OK, but I run 3.0b2
    However, scrolling in mcedit is terrible, let alone minimizing and maximizing windows. Moving windows around also takes *ages*.
    Please help!

    you seem to have some problem with the drm and agpgart modules. the reason why your fps dropped down is that you don't have direct rendering enabled anymore. so the fps are sw rendered at about 700fps by the processor. try to see if your agpgart and drm modules are set into the kernel and are loaded at xorg start.
