      Fedora 13 users aren't...

      But, if they owned a Fermi card, Fedora 13 could be installed and the card can be used.

      I've read mixed results for users of Evergreen cards in Ubuntu 10.04 but if you say so...

        Really, what are the steps to setup a fermi middle class (let's say 200$) on fedora 13? it is working out of the box? VDPAU fine?

          I also have a 4350 card, and as fas as I know it is not really feature complete, for example hw deinterlacing with video acceleration is not working at all.

            For Linux x86 and 640bit, on the Nvidia page for GTX 480 and GTX 470, it states driver support for xserver 1.8.

            Therefore, one is probably safe to assume those cards will work in Fedora 13. At the very least, there'll be a usable desktop.

              ATI should give Fedora prerelease drivers with xserver 1.8 support - that's what they do for Ubuntu too...

                Does anybody know what the status of Xvba decoding is in this release? It seems like no matter what I do, I get awful tearing in DVD playback with my 5770 on Linux. It's a joke.

                  ATI Catalyst 10.5

                  Have everyone notice when installing the latest ATI driver 10.5 on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx; when trying to uninstall center or any other package, it wants to remove the new ATI driver with it, and I have no clue what going on or if its Ubuntu Lucid Lynx error...

                    I support this post.

                    it might really be helpful to have a running (working) Fedora installation with fglrx as a backup plan (especially if you're dependent on bleeding edge components !)

                      This driver singlehandedly turned pretty much every Wine application I have from "almost but not quite working" to "working completely fine - platinum".

                      Plus my own OpenGL/GLUT applications would usually display static flicker until I updated the screen the first time. (Which I didn't for a while to display a laoding screen)
                      It worked fine on NVIDIA cards, but it didn't work on ATI cards. Now it works on ATI cards, too!

                      The patchnotes don't even come close to describe what was done in this driver release - it is absolutely amazing!

                      Thank you, ATI. For once: Really thank you.

                      Time to get into Linux gaming. I finally can!

                        Stupid edit time limit! :|

                        Just wanted to come back to say that I am currently playing World of Warcraft in DirectX mode with all settings maxed out including shadows and it works fine. I have hardware cursor, too!

                        At the same time I am streaming video from YouTube, alt+tabbing and changing desktop while the application is in full screen mode, running the game at ~35 FPS, using the in-game voice communication and playing arena as a feral druid at 2.2k rating.

                        Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx x86_64
                        Intel Core 2 Duo 2.53Ghz
                        ATi Mobility Radeon 4650
                        4GB RAM
                        1920x1080 monitor

                        No tearing, flickering only when I alt+tab for a short while, and overall it just works. Man I can't believe it... O.O

                          Where did you get the drivers for Lucid?

                          I tried the X-Swat repository, but installing those just brings the following installation error...

                          ------------------------------
                          Deleting module version: 8.732
                          completely from the DKMS tree.

                          Check /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.732/build/ for more information.
                          And I don't know how to fix it. I am not even sure, why it wants to patch for 2.6.34, as I have 32, as stated above... when running make.sh in above mentioned build directory, it runs just fine...

                            I'm glad most of you are having success with 10.5. I'm certainly not. I still get flickering in metacity composite mode.

                            Still get garbage on all 2D surfaces in eve online. Still randomly hangs x.

                            I'm on 64bit ubuntu 10.04. Tried both 10.4 and 10.5 repository packages and built 10.5 package from the .run installer.

                            But, sounds like I'm going to have to try the install script at the front of this thread before I give up.

                              Got it to work through a post by laidbackwebsage from Ubuntuforums.org!

                              Your reply helped me fix this, and the fix is (relatively) easy.

                              This assumes that the aborted attempt to install "fglrx" and "fglrx-amdcccle" via apt-get is still extant on your computer. If you rolled it back or got rid of it somehow, go ahead and re-run it so all the files will be present on your machine.

                              Now, open a terminal and do the following:
                              Quote:
                              sudo updatedb
                              Quote:
                              locate arch_fglrx_2.6.34.patch
                              Foreach listed version of the file, do
                              Quote:
                              sudo gedit <file>
                              Replace the first 2 lines of each file with:
                              Quote:
                              --- a/kcl_wait.c 2010-04-13 20:02:46.494496561 +0200
                              +++ b/kcl_wait.c 2010-04-13 19:52:00.054563389 +0200
                              and save the file. Remember to do this for ALL the files. (On my machine there were 2.)
                              Now do the following:
                              Quote:
                              sudo apt-get --no-download install fglrx fglrx-amdcccle
                              Reboot

                              Voila! Fixed!

                              Thanks for the link to the bug report...
                              Needed to run aticonfig --initial after that, though!

                                Naw won't help dude. Sounds like the driver was installed correct.

                                What you should do, is to uninstall fglrx completely. Now ensure /usr/lib/fglrx and /usr/lib32/fglrx and /etc/ati is deleted aswell.

                                Now reinstall the fglrx in the prober way, i.e. using the pkgbuild option with the fglrx installer.

                                If this doesn't solve the problem, you will have to wait for fglrx 10.6.
