    Any idea if pixel buffer support has been added? - it's been a request for the linux driver for quite a while. I'd love to do some 'informal' testing of the alpha, but apparently my search_fu is weak this morning.

    Would happily test if a -> could be pm'd

            What is the xorg-server 1.6 support status of this driver?

              As far as I have seen, there is no server 1.6 support right now

                EDIT:
                Actually resizing with compositing seems a lot faster than without composition :P That said, resizing isn't slow without compositing, don't worry.
                Care to share your xorg.conf?
                I'm running KDE 4.2 with/without compositing and window resizing is still very slow. I've tried all the combinations of Kwin effects to no avail.

                My xorg.conf settings are non-existant, I only set the Driver to fglrx.

                Also, when you run fglrxinfo, is the OpenGL version 3.x or 2.1? Mine still says 2.1.

                    the OpenGL2.1 in the Catalyst has no nvidia extansons!

                    in fakt Pure OpenGL2.1 is only DX9b!!!! shader2 not shader3! and the windows programs use nvidia only extansions like dinamic-wather in DX9c!

                    X1950 can NOT render dynamic-Wather! (hd2000-hd3000-hd3000 can render dynamic Wather)

                    so pure-OpenGL2.1=DX9b (not c )

                    OpenGL2.1+nvidia-extanions=DX9C!

                    With OpenGL3 in the Catalyst you can have DX9C+DX10+Dynamic-Wather in WINE!
                    No, it isn't true OpenGL 2.1 is compatible with DirectX 9.0c (I know because I use this two standards and all works ok). I don't look on Wine code, but if they use NV extansion this is Wine team fault, with multi vendor extension all DirectX 9.0c features all avaiable on graphic cards with OpenGL 2.1 support (so SM 3.0 also).

                      I'm really interested in this driver. I've searched the web already with no success.

                      Could someone give me a hint via pm?

                          How can I test that drivers?

                          I have a lot of problems with my ati 4850.
                          Compiz problems, wine, crash when restart a session in kde4, sometimes not initialize correctly, etc..

                          If the 9.4 version really fixes some problems, I really need that version.
                          My patience is about to die, and I don't like to change to nvidia.

                          Can someone pm how to try that version?
                          Thanks
