Thanks for the update .
Unfortunately this update does not fix the problem: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17897
I often just make one single source package which is then copied over and built in the xorg-edgers PPA and my own PPA, hardy and intrepid.Also, this appears to be no more needed on intrepid:
OK, the fdo bug #17897 - Dithering problem on MacBook Pro is properly fixed.
Can you update again your packages to latest commit 435cf7da68186f2601c4b888296117d4f652c625 please .
I'd like that other Ubuntu users can try the updated git version and I eventually request to update the intrepid version to this snapshot, if we are still in time.
Thanks again for all your work improving X experience for Ubuntu users.
I am interested in enabling 3D feature on my laptop, which is T42 (RV350 Ati mobility 9600). In step 2.a, I failed to extract libdrm2 source files with patches. Can anybody help me how I can resolve this problem?

Recently, I've installed Kubuntu 8.10, which comes with the latest radeon enabled by default. Have to say that it works quite good in 2D and Video playback.
Desktop effects also work quite smoothly, until there is a need to play Video via xv, or to run a 3D-app, but that's another story.
There are some glitches in firefox 3, however.. But I'm not sure if this is connected to "radeon" or to "gtk-qt-engine" (at least, I didn't have these anomalies, when used Catalyst 8.9 in Hardy, and ClearLooks GTK theme).
Can somebody point me where to look about these glitches?
In particular, there is broken rendering of "Tabs", and also some "controls" inside a page (such as [hr], [radiobuttons], [checkboxes]).
It has some other problems like for example not using oxygen style for drop down menus but no glitches with normal webbrowsing.
Anyway there is a gossip that FF 3.1 will have a Qt native support so problems like that may be solved soon
BTW do you get some small tearing with 3d effects ?

I get tearing from time to time while for example draging windows (transparency on) or with alt+tab effects. tried XAA, EXA, and different kwin settings and it's always the same.
I'm using rs690 radeon x1200 which support is quite recent so that may be the problem.
BTW videos work ok for me with xv and with composing on. Try setting up EXA in xorg.conf instead of default XAA.
Tormod, current packages for Hardy miss 'XInput.h'. That header is in Hardy original 'x11proto-input-dev' package, later that header was moved to 'libxi-dev' as i see, but that package was not also updated for Hardy.
