    Now with the 9.* series, I see steady regressions.

    9.3 introduced graphical glitches to savage 2, with 9.4 I can't even start s2:
    X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
    Major opcode of failed request: 147 (XFree86-DRI)
    Minor opcode of failed request: 8 ()
    Value in failed request: 0x2200009
    Serial number of failed request: 81
    Current serial number in output stream: 107

    9.3 Mythtv playback was great, 9.4 playback is unwatchable due to stuttering. This happens with both SD and HD playback, though HD playback with mplayer is fine. :/

    card: 4870, reckon I'm done with it.
    You need to rebuild your kernel module. You've probably updated your kernel at some point. Use dkms or just reinstall the driver.

      I get this compilation error on kernel 2.6.29:

      http://groups.google.com/group/linux.../browse_thread
      /thread/9a10efde9c50b8ce/bf7ce3f715cd1434?lnk=raot

      With the 9.4 source this is:

      /usr/src/modules-2.6.26-fglrx-9.2/fglrx/firegl_public.c:1444: error: ‘struct task_struct’ has no member named ‘euid’

        That's what I do each time. The last kernel update for Debian Lenny was about a week ago, I only installed this driver two days ago after using fglrx-uninstall and rm -rf'ing /etc/ati/.

        What I posted above also happens on another box with Debian Lenny and with a 2600xt. One is using 64bit and the other 32bit os's.

        It was late at night when I posted the kneejerk "I'm done" reaction. After two days of use, I like the improvements in 9.4 overall but the savage2 thing has really struck me hard as a gamer, especially with a clanwar coming up.

          whats wrong with savage2? Mine plays fine.

          EDIT:
          Actually it doesn't:
          Code:
          X Error of failed request:  BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
            Major opcode of failed request:  139 (XFree86-DRI)
            Minor opcode of failed request:  8 ()
            Resource id in failed request:  0x2000009
            Serial number of failed request:  84
            Current serial number in output stream:  110

            Yeah, I already tried xrandr with 9.4 and now it does list my TV output (contrary to driver 9.3). But gnome doesn't use the complete screen.

            Is there any way to create a second screen in xrandr? I don't want a stretched desktop, I want two separate desktops (no window dragging between them).

            When I setup with
            Code:
            aticonfig --intial=dual-head --adapter=0
            I get the dual-head setup I want and for screen 0 xrandr shows:
            Code:
            xrandr -q --screen 0
            Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 1280 x 1280

            COMPONENT_VIDEO disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
            But on CRT1 (my main screen) gnome uses only 1024x768 pixels of the available 1280x1024. So the panels don't stretch over the screen.

            I can setup my main screen properly, when not having dual head. But I don't know how to create a second screen with xrandr... I can only address `screen 1' (the 2nd one) if it is already there.

              Can somebody please post the fglrx version of Catalyst 9.4?
              I'm playing around with Ubuntu 9.04 and I have there 8.60.3 running.
              But with this version Team Fortress 2 is crashing in current Wine and Crossover games when a map is starting. On the wine page somebody got it running with fglrx version 8.60.40. So I have the feeling that I'm running the Ubuntu Catalyst and not the real one, even though I installed from Catalyst 9.4 install file.

              Thank you in advance

                    You got the real one. Mine is also 8.60.3. The 8.60.4 must be a beta.

                      I reported this on the bugzilla, but this is a problem that intermittently appeared with monthly fglrx since June or July 2008.

                      I would really like that someone could take care of it since it seems to me it is a bit critical. (Xorg fails to start due to this)
