Hey guys I finally managed to compile the driver! (after I installed GCC and make)...
Well I have a Hybrid Crossfire setup here which means HD 3200 IGP and an HD 3450 as the first card...
I always have it enabled at BIOS and please take a look at some strange lines at my Xorg.0.log!
Can you tell me please if anyone knows if I can fix that? Cause it is definately talking about Crossfire!(II) fglrx(0): === [PreInitCFSlave] === begin
(II) fglrx(0): PCI bus 1 card 5 func 0
(**) fglrx(0): Chipset: "ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics" (Chipset = 0x9610)
(**) fglrx(0): (PciSubVendor = 0x1043, PciSubDevice = 0x82f1)
(**) fglrx(0): board vendor info: third party graphics adapter - NOT original ATI

(II) fglrx(0): === [PreInitCFSlave] === end
(II) fglrx(0): There is no any crossfire chain in the system

Or it is just not ready yet??
Catalyst 8.5 on a X1400Mobile with Ubuntu 8.04 64Bits.
Don't have any problems or artifacts like people are reporting here.
cjr2k3, how much system memory do you have ? The reported "64-bit" issues seem to be more related to the system BIOS's treatment of 4GB of system RAM more than to 64-bit itself.
Graphic Card have 128Mb memory.

(anyone knows how to get that "hypermemory" working under linux?)
@bridgman:Ok more info... HD3450 + HD 3200
Here I use opensuse 11 64bit and I can only get a good working desktop only if I turn on Composite features of Plasma workspace at KDE 4 or use Compiz-Fusion!
Really weird... I have Hybrid Crossfire enabled and with it on my RAM reduces to 1.75GB from 2GB...
But Compositing features and general stability are really improved John...
Mine question too man...(anyone knows how to get that "hypermemory" working under linux?)
Only sad thing is that video playback is even worse than before (now I get major tearing in windowed mode _and_ fullscreen).
(system: c2d, x1400, 3GB)

I've read that disabling PAT in the kernel may solve this, but in 22.214.171.124 there is no configure option for this.
I have mobility radeon x1600 on 32-bit hardy, using gnome.
Using 8.5 with compiz works beautifully, and indeed noticeably faster than 8.3. However, switching to metacity results quickly in an entire garbled screen, full of artifacts. Could this be the fault of my configuration? The relevant section in my xorg.conf is:
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "on"
Option "VideoOverlay" "off"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
Option "TexturedVideo" "on"
Option "Textured2D" "on"
Option "TexturedXrender" "on"
Option "UseFastTLS" "1"
