    Did they? 9.13 and 9.14 betas still have that issue (oh shit, shouldn't have written that ). The driver is being a pain right now and doesn't want to install properly, so I haven't tested it yet (the beta revision worked fine though, so I doubt there are that many last minute changes).

      I think you mean 10-1 and 10-2 until you live in a parallel world with 14 month or more My guess is Xserver 1.7+ support for 10-4 not before. As this is usually created 3 month before U might get a beta Jan/Feb.

        Yeah, 10 series . Anyway, the problem is still there, at least with Kwin. I don't think it will ever get resolved unfortunately. Oh well, back to radeon.

          It works just fine with fglrx 9.11 on Kubuntu 9.10 with KDE SC 4.3.3 with desktop effects turned on. Unminimizing Firefox with a full HD flash YouTube video is unminimizing in about a qaurter of a second, on a IGP HD3300 with 128mb onboard RAM.

          Whatever is causing that bug is not due to fglrx...

            Weird. I'm also on Kubuntu Karmic. Minimizing/unminimizing is not bad (still clunkier than radeon). Wish they came up with a fix for this whole mess (window maximizing and resizing are painful).

              It is fglrx: http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1546
              The only "fix" is the xserver no backfill workaround, but that then causes weird rendering artifacts.

                That's funny because when the changes were made I started noticing artifacts with fglrx. Before fglrx was artifact free and had fast response under composition. However, I can see why it was changed (problem that affects all xorg drivers vs. problem that affects fglrx).

                  Just tested in Gentoo. Installs fine with simply renaming the 9.11 ebuild to 9.12. Also seems to run fine with kernel 2.6.32 (the ebuild will patch it automatically to compile with that kernel.)

                    Can't get it to work on 2.6.32 kernel. Did you do anything special to get it working?

                      Unless you're on Gentoo, you need to apply the 2.6.32 compatibility patch by hand. It's this here:

                        9.12 XVBA is still broken? I'll stick with 9.10

                        Hi yall,

                        FGLRX 9.12 XVBA is still broken (thanx for the heads up Kano)? I'll stick with 9.10.

                        Why release xvba support & then ignore it-your not making any sense?

                        Hells bells.... While this may have been mentioned before (to whoever is managing the Linux driver team); why not fix the broken bits, rather than introducing new items????

                        Linux users have been asking for proper video support for *many years*. Originally, in the forums on Rage3D & latterly, on Phoronix.

                        More $$$$ needs to be put into the Linux driver team (thanx for the efforts guys!) and then like the muchly improved M$FT drivers, the bugs will be squashed. Hardly rocket science.... ;-)

                        If you can not walk yet, why are you trying to run?

                        *stutter* *stutter* *stutter* *stutter*

                        Perhaps we can have a "hot fix" too, like the M$FT users got, with 9.12?

                          Sigh, I think xserver 1.7 support is the single thing many of us are waiting for :-/ AMD people, please rethink your priorities...

                          And I dare ask, how about kernel support? I'm not hoping for anything high like .32, but at least .31, PLEASE?

                            .31 is supported just fine.

                                Does the control center have an option for NOT making HDMI my primary monitor!

                                I spent hours on this the other night, If I plug in my HDTV (hopefully as a secondary monitor) GDM extends across the whole thing (and is really low res) and no matter what I do with Xrandr or the control panel my gnome panels still end up over on the TV. I gave up in the end.
