        Not for me. I can send you a tarball, if you'd like.

            Maybe your unzip tool is broken or your ram

              but:
              ls -lh /usr/lib64/libatiadlxx.so
              -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 147K 9. Jan 15:37 /usr/lib64/libatiadlxx.so
              Same here. I've switched from 9.1 to 9.2 and get this. I remember that switching from 8.12 to 9.1 gave me the same thing. In the meantime I've moved to ubuntu amd64, so on fresh install I've installed 9.1 and everything was fine. I think that the installer don't override the old file, but when I've copied the file from extracted 9.2 to /usr/lib64 I still recive the same error (although those files were different ;/).

                Why don't you use the unistall feature first? Usually at:

                /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh

                  DPMS still not work for me

                  I have an ASUS EAH3450 running on a Gigabyte GA-G33M-S2H and the DPMS functionality has never worked. With this release it still doesn't. With options in xorg.conf I can get the display to go to sleep, but the only way to wake it up is ctrl-alt-bkspce or with a normal config it just never goes to sleep. The same card on an NVidia chipset motherboard (my spare machine) works as expected. The onboard G33 or an NVidia 8400 has no problem on the same motherboard. Go figure.

                  I think that I may have some conflict between the HD3450 and the G33 chipsets that is unresolvable.

                  I did report the fault to AMD. Maybe I am the only sufferer?

                  Question - does anyone with a G33 motherboard have a successful setup?

                    I usually use ebuilds. Thank you
                    btw, my ram is fine.

                      no, I see the same. With my 8600GT dpms worked, with my HD3870 it does not

                        Because I'm using distro builds, so I think when I purge debs all unnessesary files are deleted.

                          Depends, the newer Ubuntu packageing works better, it just leaves the /etc/ati dir, which you should purge manually after install. I gave up using the Debian packageing because it was broken by default - I fixed it at the beginning but then never used it again. I don't know of other packages, only those which I use in my script.

                            Yes, because 6 months ago nvidia had weak hw accaleration, AMD had and has almost no 2D accaleration.
                            Weak accaleration means some operations were accalerated while others were not, leading to a lot of image-moving between VRAM and normal RAM.
                            If nothing is accalerated of course, you don't have this problem

                            Starting with the 178.70 drivers NVidia released pretty good RENDER/2D accaleration. I am not saying that their driver is without problems, but when it comes to 2D accaleration is probably the best driver arround. It even accalerates RENDER's filter effects (blur, ...) with shaders on GF8+.

                            And gtkperf is not such a great benchmark anyway - the difference of performance or ondemand as cpu governor is pretty big - with all cards.
                            gtkperf is a real-world benchmark. Typical 2D software consumes both, CPU and GPU time, but usually a lot more CPU resources.
                            Therefor it pretty well simulates real-world GUI behaviour, so what you get when you work (resize,...) with gtk based programs.

                              a nvidia using friend of mine really loves the nvidia drivers! With them the text in some kde menus (like the one to add plasmoids) is white on white - whatever he does to change that, it does not help .... he is using nouveau now ...

                                Then his card must be really old. Most fixes are for GF8+. Older drivers got last update over 6 month ago. Ok, compared to fglrx which supports (in theory) all DX8+ cards you get more updates for fglrx, but the driver quality and feature support (look at VDPAU) is better with NV.
