    Do you have got a watermark or nothing?

    lspci -nn|grep VGA
    On Ubuntu 9.10 (RC1), I had a watermark using the included restricted Drivers, saying 'unsupported device'. but I couldn't set the resolution to 1920x1080. All other attempts with the various other Distros were blank screens with the card's fan maxed, I think. (Sapphire 5770)

    # lspci -nn | grep VGA
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: ATI Technologies Inc Device [1002:68b8]

    I'm re-installing from scratch right now, since I can't remember what I was doing, or where I left-off, in the wee-hours this morning when I crashed. I wanted to test the card with a supported OS, to rule-out a defective. I took it to work, and tested it in a friend's rig earlier today (Win 7, and XP SP3). The card seemed to work fine. Fan settled down, 1080p was no problem, videos all worked smoothly.

    I'll try again with stock drivers and if I get the overlay, I'll try one of your License edits.

    Thanks for all the help I've seen you and Bridgman giving to so many people.

      I think you need the hack that will patch the fglrx_drv.so as the problem is the control file.

        I gave up on the 9.10 drivers and installed the 9.11 beta drivers and everything seems to be perfect now

          Where did you get them from, please? Could you be so kind as to provide a link? I can't find anything about Catalyst and Linux on the ATI site and am having to use the vesa driver with my 5770. :-(

            Is it this one, maybe?

There are leaked copies of the beta drivers out there if one is so inclined to search, usually posted by individuals who don't care about contracts or managed to hack into tester's email accounts (or the mailing list itself).

                Actually, that link *is* the 9.11 beta talked about in this forum.

                  9.11 Beta drivers are part of a closed-beta.

                  I'll wait. I don't much like beta-ware, since I'm not a developer/coder. People don't seem to have patience anymore these days.

                  When 9.11 comes-out of Beta, I'll shift back from other projects to the box I put the 5770 into. I'm out of practice dishing and planishing, anyway. (My Japanese bosses are in a tizzy over some things, so fiddling with software isn't enough of a frustration-release right now. Luckily for me, cold-working metal is. )

                        Which I did and they do recognise my HD5770 card. But I have encountered a number of bugs with them that pretty much make them unusable, as they destabilise the system and corrupt video in some of the main apps I use (wine and MythTV). I have my fingers crossed that beta testers in the closed beta caught these bugs but I seem to have no way to give feedback to the developers.

                          The 9.11 drivers are supposed to include official support for 57x0, so (with some luck) these issues may be fixed...
