    @Klaus: really X1400 isn't supported by fglrx anymore. Sad but true. The open-source drivers should work fine with your hardware, but GLSL is not up to par yet, opengl works fine up to v1.5 functionality I think.
    Yeah right. I have the acceleration and compiz works fine. But these are not my concerns right now, I needed to use my graphic cards capabilities. I think it could be nicer if AMD would stop the support of older cards when open source drivers would come to fruition. I do not expect that they use a lot of time extending the driver for older hardwares, but simply being able to run the old driver on newer kernels and Xs would be enough for people like me.

      Yeah right. I can use compiz on my system, but that is not my concern now, I need to use my garphic cards capabilities. I think it could be nicer of ATI if they drop support for the older cards when the open source drivers reach to fruition. I don't mean they should have coped with lots of difficulties to update drivers for the non unified shader (If I recall correctly), but just update a "legacy driver" (probably based on catalyst 9.3) to be able to be installed on newer kernels and Xs...

        If you need to use the full capabilities of your graphics card, switch to older drivers (which in turn might require an older kernel). If you knew your uni project required such things, I'm going to assume you had it running properly at some stage - in which case, poking at it and having it no longer working is your own fault.

          Yeap, don't upgrade what isn't broken. :3

            Yup. There goes my point of using Fedora. I'm not using it just to use a linux, or just someone else said it was better. I'm using Fedora because I like to move with the bleeding edge of softwares and technology; which in this case it seems I shall cope with using my graphic hardware with limited functionality.
            The best solution now which does not require downgrading, is using another pc, which I think I can manage it.

            Thanks for the help though, at least I know now that I should not check out any more catalysts on each month!

              If you try to run bleeding edge software on ancient hardware at some point you're bound to discover that backward compatibility is more than an abstract concept.

                kaffeine isn't crashing anymore

                Hurrah:

                With the new (9.9) driver you can watch TV by using kaffeine and the xv xine-driver. It doesn't seem to crash anymore. I'm happy.

                According to Xorg.0.log:

                The driver now seems to guarantee support the X server 5.0 (of ubuntu 9.4) which it hadn't in 9.8.
                More AIGLX visuals are supported. What are they good for?

                I almost didn't download the driver because these good news weren't mentioned in the release notes.


                excerpt of diff Xorg.0.log Xorg.0.log.old (I'm using a HD3450):

                  kaffeine stills crashes

                  Zu früh gefreut:
                  Kaffeine still crashes and takes the X-server with it. Since kaffeine with the opensource driver radeon (which has xv support), this should be a catalyst problem. Here the last lines of Xorg.0.log:

                    You can use in

                    .xine/config

                    video.driverpengl
                    video.output.opengl_renderer:2D_Tex[

                    (it does not correctly work with 2D_Tex_Fragprog)

                      Thanks for the reply. I am using video.driver:xshm at the moment (I change it at the kaffeine menu). I just don't like to be able to reproduce a "Blue Screen Of Death"-Experience in Linux. Anyone else has the problem?
