        It is very important to use mplayer, which is the only media player i know of, that makes fglrx render the video in a direct rendered window instead of in a indirect rendered window (you will get tearing).

        Also should be noted, that you have to enable vsync always through amdcccle.

            Oh and btw. I am able to use gmplayer as a frontend to mplayer also. It still renders through mplayer.

            • What happens if you try to use VLC for your video player?

                Just tried it. Doesn't work. I get tearing.
                I have only had success with mplayer.

                  Install it freshly from ISO, use X-Swat repository below:
                  https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates

                  And use the fix from above!

                  Maybe it helps!
                  Yes, I'm using 10.04 64. I did a fresh install and added the ppa for x-swat. Marked fglrx, amdcccle, modaliases, and all the other associated packages for upgrade. fglrx and amdcccle failed complaining about not being able to apply the arch_fglrx_2.6.34.patch. Was able to resolve that from here:
                  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1496724

                  But now I get:
                  Code:
                  Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 2.6.34-020634-generic (x86_64)
                  Consult the make.log in the build directory
                  /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.732/build/ for more information.
                  The make.log file:
                  Code:
                  DKMS make.log for fglrx-8.732 for kernel 2.6.34-020634-generic (x86_64)
                  Fri Jun  4 03:18:58 PDT 2010
                  AMD kernel module generator version 2.1
                  cat: /lib/modules/2.6.34-020634-generic/build/include/linux/utsrelease.h: No such file or directory
                  Error:
                  kernel includes at /lib/modules/2.6.34-020634-generic/build/include do not match current kernel.
                  they are versioned as ""
                  instead of "2.6.34-020634-generic".
                  you might need to adjust your symlinks:
                  - /usr/include
                  - /usr/src/linux
                  Really freaking strange, because uname -a matches that kernel number and the kernel and headers installs went off without a hitch.

                  Did you run into any of these issues? If so, how did you fix them?

                  • Just noticed there's a new fglrx build in 6 hours with this in the log: "Add patch from Arch to enable support for 2.6.34 kernels." so maybe I try again in the morning.

                    Btw what fix from above are you talking about?

                    • karmic build is still broken with:
                      Code:
                      execstack: cannot open "debian/fglrx-amdcccle/usr/lib/bin/amdcccle": No such file or directory
                      IIRC the "fix" should be in one of the 10.4 threads..

                      I'm also betting that their CCC privilege escalation app/script is still MIA as well...

                      why am I not surprised?
