        I have posted a bug report about the savage2 issue here:

        http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1519

        Going through a number of reports I notice a lack of feedback, can we have confirmation that they aren't just met by a brick wall? That and the fact the forms haven't been updated since 9.1...

            A patch just went up for Savage 2 that works around this fglrx issue (broken glXCloseWindow). You can update to it by running the dedicated server and letting it autoupdate (will take a minute or so for the update to begin).

              I'm have had working dual-screen with two monitors and they have different resolutions and after messing around with my config after a driver upgrade everything got broken so I had to redo everything..

              The good thing is that I now have all the commands that I did to make it working.

              Might not be needed, but I want to be sure to have fresh config.
              sudo cp /etc/ati/amdpcsdb.default /etc/ati/amdpcsdb

              sudo aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=horizontal

              Here you just add the resolution you want on your two heads
              sudo aticonfig --add-pairmode=1680x1050+1280x1024

              I'm not using the tv-out on my HD2900XT but I guess you need to do
              sudo aticonfig --enable-monitor=tmds1,tv
              or something similar to activate the tv-output

              After this you need a xorg.conf with 2 device entries and 2 screen entries, something similar to this:
              http://rafb.net/p/dk9zMW99.html

              My xorg.conf is still a bit messy, but it's working now so I don't dare to change anything at the moment :P

                oh, and after doing this you'll get a xrandr like this:

                  Xv, GL video plugins with Compiz

                  I am using Ubuntu 9.04 x64 with fglrx 9.4 and ATI 4870.
                  With compiz enabled (AIGLX):
                  When i try to get video output through xv, i get very high cpu usage,
                  when i am trying to get video with through GL plugin i get serious flickering.

                  Is there any workaround, without disabling compiz?

                    Are you using the early 9.4 which was bundled with Jaunty, or the final 9.4 we released a couple of days ago ? The early driver did *not* have Redirected Direct Rendering, ie it would flicker when displaying GL under Compiz.

                    Going from memory, I think you want 8.602 in the release string. The early driver still starts with 8.60 but had a lower number IIRC.

                      I made a clean install of Ubuntu 9.04-rc x64 and applied all available updates.

                      The package version in ubuntu is:
                      xorg-driver-fglrx 2:8.600-0ubuntu2

                      and the module release string
                      ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Release Identifier: 8.60.4
