        Are ATI aware of this bug? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...6?comments=all

        It's been around for years now and it's the main reason I'm using the open source drivers rather than fglrx. A lot of people are suffering it (see 427 comments) any idea when it's going to be fixed? It's a very frustrating bug to have

          Regarding the Compiz slow resize bug several people mentioned on here... it is no secret that they are introducing a completely new 2D acceleration architecture soon (I don't know, something within my heart tells me June is a month of joy)...

                Can't get Kwin effects work with fedora 12 (KDE 4.4) Otherwise this driver actually works with it :P Just remember adding "nomodeset" to kernel parameters.

                  You need to disable it. If it's a kernel module, blacklist it in /etc/modprobe.d/. If it's built into the kernel, disable it in the Grub command line.

                      Wouldn't it be rather because you are 2.6.32 instead of something older like 2.6.30 ?!?

                        With Win not with Linux, 10-4 still has got the wrong color bug with h264. l5.1 support would be too nice, but xvba changes are very slow usually. Basically it is a joke that l5.1 h264 was NOT supported till now with DXVA2.

                              I get the same problem with Karmic x86_64.

                              I do the following and now it install and work fine:
                              Code:
                              sh ati-driver-installer-10-4-x86.x86_64.run --extract
                              cd fglrx-install.*
                              
                              edit packages/Ubuntu/dists/karmic/rules
                              remove the last two lines:
                              binary-install/$(PKG_control)::
                                      execstack -c debian/$(PKG_control)/$(DRIDIR)/bin/amdcccle
                              
                              ./ati-installer.sh 10.4 --buildpkg Ubuntu/karmic
                              Is someone having better correction for the rules file?

                                You also get kernel support up to .34 the same time when you use it.
