      lol, I just got a feed item from their feed about the new release. I try to open it:

      "File not found".

      Extraordinary support.

        Don't count on it...looks like FC11 + DRI2 + FGLRX = FTL

        Each time I use FGLRX on FC11 X86_64 I get hard locks after using Gnome for about 1-10 minutes (nothing in the logs).


        Does any one have better experience?

        I am using an HP 6930p with RadeonHD 3650

          I probably don't need to say this, but just wanted to make sure you *were* disabling kernel modesetting before running fglrx.

            AFAIK KMS is not working. but i do not have it specifically disabled nor am I really sure how one would go about disabling. :/

            BTW bridgman I drive by the AMD building in Sunnyvale everyday on the way to work

            Edit:

            I do have the following in my blacklist and a recompiled INITRD

            # Radeon and DRM
            blacklist drm
            blacklist i2c_core
            blacklist i2c_algo_bit
            blacklist radeon

              Yeah, after I posted that I remembered that fglrx only supports 6xx and up which don't have KMS in F11.

                hehe no worries.

                I realize that FC11 is unsupported but I am curious to know what the issue is. Maybe it is not a DRI2 issue and I just think that because on the same HW in FC10 FGLRX works but in FC11 no love. I am also happy to hear that i am not the only one that has this issue.

                  There is some change with xv on 4850 card. I got cropped XV output before. But now, movies are not cropped. Computer "freezing" for 2-3 seconds some times, except that its good release I think.

                    Yeah, I don't think KMS gets enabled by default yet in F11 for r6xx/r7xx. It does in current Rawhide though so you gotta play pretty careful.

                      Anyone else having trouble getting 9.8 to compile on 64-bit F11 with kernel-2.6.29.6-217.2.7.fc11.x86_64 ? My fglrx-install.log file says:
