    The 3D acceleration is still being worked on (although it runs a number of games now) but 2D (EXA, Xv) acceleration also requires the drm.

    Anyways, the logs may offer clues for both performance and HDMI.

      I thought this was for an HTPC? If so, the only thing you NEED is 2D, and 2D accel works out of the box on most new distros using open source drivers (I never much liked radeonhd btw, it always did weird things like you talk about, try just "radeon").

      And for that matter, for an HTPC, the performance bottleneck will be the CPU anyways -- the media decoder implementation, what reason do you even have for not just using the onboard 3200?

        I know its brutal, only reason I suggest that is that the smarter way involves way too much hand holding.

          Depends. For Kanotix or when you used my script uninstall is done this way:

          dpkg --purge $(dpkg -l|awk '/fglrx|libamdx/{print $2}')
          rm -rf /etc/ati
          rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
          dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

          When you ran the installer then you have to use

          /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh
          rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*

          Then run a command that resets the xorg.conf file or just use it without, in that case usually ati oss is loaded after REBOOT.

            Removing fglrx is fairly easy. You just run:
            /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh

            This removes fglrx and returns the overwritten files to the state before it was installed.

              Any idea how to get video out from HD4650 HDMI yet? I'm running into the same problem. Everything used to be warm and fuzzy with Fedora 10. After I upgraded to Fedora 11, I cannot get any video out of HDMI port with fglrx. If I use radeon, then it's ok.

                It's also going to do FretsOnFire, MAME, and a few other things.

                It's got a quad core Phenom, so the CPU's not going to bottleneck it.

                I'm a UNIX/Linux sysadmin. Digging around in internals doesn't bother me, but I don't need a "howto" for removing fglrx, either. I need HDMI working.

                Doesn't seem that way. If F10 works, maybe I'll just downgrade.

                  ehmm.. stupid question but you are using the hdmi connector on the card, right? you don't try to get the output through the onboard connector...?

                    Correct. As the original post notes, HDMI works fine on a VT or in the BIOS. X does not detect the monitor.
