Any other log to see (or test to execute)?
You were right. I don't remember if I did some change before, but the Vertical Refresh was enabled (closer to Quality, instead of Performance). Disabling it, glxgears now states around 2420 FPS.
Thank you very, very much, Christian_L! Things go better now.

This is reference to my problem...aka logout is f****d.
see starting day of this bug and still it exist.
Come on ati.
ps. that workaround doesn't help. blac/nk screen after logout/switchuser/shutdown.
I'm experiencing memory leaks even with latest driver from ATI. My workstation keeps increasing memory consumption to the point that it becomes unstable at end of the day becouse it is out of memory.
The problem develops much faster when usin WINE: almost 1 MB per minute!
Otherwise the driver is fine, Dual display 1650X1050 & 1440x900 works, 3D, video, Compiz (I do not use it).
Somebody else has this problem?
My config is: Ubuntu 7.10 amd64, kernel 2.6.22-14 generic, Athlon 4800 64X2 , 2GB ram, chipset nForce570, Ati HD2400pro
Don't know, whether I should post this issue to the other thread, since it touches not only 8.45 version of the driver, but anyway.
The problem is, after ATI added AIGLX support, my pc keeps hanging while executing any 3d application. Under "any" I mean any application which uses opengl instructions, whether it is a simple glxgears or a game full of shaders. I tried to disable AIGLX but this didn't help. Also I tried to disable VideoOverlay but this didn't help either.
I noticed, that when the kernel hangs, I stops responding on any event except Alt+SysRq+B. And sometimes, after pressing that, the pc wakes up for a millisecond before immidiate reboot. Music starts playing, the pointer moves and so on. So, I think that only GPU hangs, not CPU. I heard there is a feature called VPURecovery on windows, which might be helpfull in this situation. Has ATI any plans on providing this feature to us?
My pc : Ubuntu 7.10, Radeon 9600XT, Athlon 1800xp, VIA KT400 motherboard.
just pulled it in through livna updates, and STILL can't use 1400x1050.
what a bloody disaster this driver is, reverting back to vesa....
I'm getting soooo tired of this
I see in the logs that it does detect the 1400x1050 panel but somehow doesn't set the resolution. This smells just like the same bug that radeonhd had a while ago. They solved it in mere days, so AMD, please send an e-mail to these developers and ask them how to solve it, they know how!
Look for splash=silent and change it to splash=verbose
Downside is you don't have a fancy bootsplash but it no longer hangs when logging out of KDE/Gnome..been using this since Mandriva 2007.1 with fglrx 8.38..
Works fine in Mandriva 2008 with the last 5 versions of fglrx..
