    its only for testing without 3D!!!

    it is version 8.493 only...
    Does really this version lack 3D support?

    Not sure what that post meant; maybe the poster had an issue with the kernel module not being installed or not initializing properly and getting slow/failing 3D as a result.

    re: the version numbers, this is Catalyst 8.5, ie the 5th release of 2008, which also happens to be internal release number 8.493.

    Are there any code changes with the new version? I'm hesitant to retry it, as it seems unlikely...

    Also, my last post appears to have not made it. To wit: http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1139

    I'm pretty sure it's just a packaging change -- wouldn't expect anything other than the watermark to be affected.

    My thoughts too. Looks like I'm sticking to 8.4 for a while. *sigh*. I was looking forward to this update, too - wine keeps failing with literally every directx app I care to try (it didn't with my old nvidia card), and I was hoping a driver update would fix it.

    This is what I get for rampant fanboyism, I guess . I only bought ATI because they'd been bought by AMD, and they were doing the open-source thing. If I'd thought on it more, I'd have stuck to nvidia for a year or two more.

    If you have examples of DX apps which work with wine on another card but not with our current driver can you let us know ?

    Sure. The main example is the game "audiosurf". Other ones that don't work are NWN2 (not tested with the old nvidia card), the DXDiag 3D acceleration test(!) (with all the native DirectX9 stuff installed).

    Here's what audiosurf says (with 8.4 drivers):
    fixme:d3d:test_pbo_functionality >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_OPERATION (0x502) from Loading the PBO test texture
    @ ../../../dlls/wined3d/directx.c / 3462
    fixme:d3d:IWineD3DDeviceImpl_CreateQuery (0x13e910) Unhandled query type 4
    wine: Unhandled page fault on execute access to 0x7c044b28 at address 0x7c044b28 (thread 000b), starting debugger...

    I have a 10GB full-debug-run-log of what happens to NWN2... it's not exactly fascinating, mind.

    Oh, and while I'm on the subject, fgl_glxgears -fbo hardlocks the computer (again, 8.4).

    MAchine Specs:
    Intel D101GGC MOBO
    1 Gb generic RAM Memory
    Intel Pentium D 805 2.66 GHz
    Integrated Xpress 200 Graphic Card (256 MB of RAM Allocated)
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 160 GB Hard Drive

    Main Issues with this release:

    1- VLC still crashes with OpenGL output, throws this message:

    [00000343] main private error: option glx-shm does not exist
    libGL error: drmGetMagic failed
    libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
    X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
    Major opcode of failed request: 143 (GLX)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
    Serial number of failed request: 58
    Current serial number in output stream: 58

    2- Scrambling video output bug with VideoOverlay option turned on in xorg.conf and XVideo output was partially resolved. Now it only happens rarely in fullscreen, but in windowed video playback, it is still seen.

    Unhappy white screen with this test driver

    Hello!

    i have tried this driver 8.493 again without watermark (with the howto sed -i ...) and there is a white screen with compiz fusion on my ubuntu hardy 32 Bit.
