    Just solved that. The correct line is:

    ./ati-packager-wrapper.sh Ubuntu/gutsy

    Default Ubuntu Hardy packages available for testing.

    I filed a bug against Ubuntu Hardy (8.04) asking for fglrx to be updated.

    Bug:
    http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/218345

    Packages for testing:
    https://edge.launchpad.net/~tjaalton/+archive

    Please test the packages Timo Aaltonen put together and report results on the thread for #218345.

    If there are any regressions please report them so we don't break hardy with this last minute change.

    Why is this happening?

    The forecast for me its troubling.

    I'll have to sticky with Gutsy and Catalyst 8.2 until this get fixed!

    Anyone can shed some light on this issue?

    Thanks for reading!

    bug is the one I'am experiencing (i'am currently not at home). To be clear: This driver is for me the most bad one ever!! So, better revert to one from before the AIGLX period..

    This latest release (8.4) seems the best, for my system, since a long time.........
    The 2D slow performance of the 8.3 release, which was the thing most annoyed me, seems to be just fixed.....

    I use a Dell Inspiron 9400 laptop with an ATI X1400, with an updated Kubuntu 7.10, and don't use compiz or other composite managers.

    8.4, as 8.3 did, works well for me (Mobility HD2600 with 512MB), but....

    ...since a release i don't remember, it detects just 128MB of dedicated ram! and the Xorg.0.log says:

    (**) fglrx(0): VideoRAM: 262144 kByte, Type: DDR2

    and then the Catalyst Control Center shows 128MB... what the heck!?

    i can sure you that i have 512MB of dedicated ram!!
