    Call me troll but unless OSS driver provides support for new ATI cards, I'm holding on buying any of them. The fglrx is just such a deep sh*t that hurt me too much for my forgiveness, be it the latest version, still crap, period.

        Yay! I'll take what I can get. Here's hoping to no regressions.


        Hey blur works in Compiz now! I'm satisfied.

          Anyone happen to know if this driver works with the latest xorg-server releases? (1.7.1 in my case).

            I'll just wait until ubuntu 10.04 comes out; seems that less can go wrong. I'll gauge how good it is by measuring the amount of people who rage and grief in this thread

              You also work for AMD/ATI?

                Is 2D support improved for R700 cards yet?

                The previous release's 2D support on my HD 4650 was so bad that a 80x24 gnome-terminal window couldn't even scroll without tearing, and "focus-follows-mouse" between 2 such gnome-terminals was taking over a second to take effect.

                I could almost hear my ancient Matrox G400 screaming with derisory laughter behind me... Will 9.11 bring more of the same?

                  You'll feel like you upgraded to a G400MAX... those 32MB of ram will send you screaming for joy!

                  OSS drivers on 2.6.31 aren't bad at all. Even have some openGL working! (on HD4850)

                    Not enough OpenGL, unfortunately.

                    The machine needs to be able to run WoW; otherwise I'd have set fglrx on fire and thrown it out the window long ago.

                    And the G400 is a G400 MAX, unfortunately. By the sound of things, it's probably working on a new "victory dance" right now...
