      Hi,

      I am downloading the new driver, however when going through the drop-down menu on amd.com to choose drivers I noticed that Radeon HD agp cards only list Windows drivers. The PCIE HD cards include linux.

      Has Linux driver support for Radeon HD agp cards been dropped?

      Thanks
      there are some AGP fixes in kernel 2.6.35 .......

        Same problem with gnome. The only difference is that the boxes are not black, but white.

          I didn't notice any graphical corruption on kde3 so far. fglrx 10.6, HD5770, kernel 2.6.32, Xorg 1.7.6.

          There are at least two fan-less netbooks on the market. Both use intel-CPUs (atom) and have glossy displays, and I'm not touching that. But they exist.

          My current notebook is on the brink of death due to a semi-dead and unreplaceable fan (possibly induced by higher-than-intended load to mask a defective nvidia GPU), which means two out of three notebooks became unusable because of a fan. I'd like to prevent my next purchase from suffering the same fate.

                10.6 is one big pile of fail for me, the worst driver in ages

                using dual screen desktop on hd4870 @ ubuntu 9.10 64 bit:
                - second screen stays black (but mouse cursor shows)
                or
                - no composite (fallback to metacity)

                also, dmesg shows lots of failures:

                dmesg |grep -i fglrx

                i'm back to 10.3, which works fine for me
                if anyone knows how to get dual screen working with compiz on, please tell me

                  uninstall current fglrx
                  delete /etc/ati
                  delete /usr/lib/fglrx
                  install fglrx
                  do: aticonfig --initial --force

                  that works for me, had a similar issue.

                  Also I have to report that I have those black boxes with KDE4 without compositing too.

                    Has anyone noticed that 'unminimizing' windows is snappy nowadays? It took me like a second with 10.5, whilst this does it virtually instantly. I can even screencast decently nowadays with my HD5770 (used to get me almost 5 fps ).

                      An ATI developer has just updated the bug report at ati.cchtml.com. The suggested workaround is to add the following to the Device section of xorg.conf:

                      BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
