      However, all the text is garbled up. It's like 90% of the letters are just gone.
      I don't know if that is a Wine bug but it's not anywhere to be found on winehq.org and several NVIDIA users have shown screenshots that look just fine.

      I had (have) that issue with Alien Swarm.
      And from the bug entry on winehq.org, people with nvidia have the issue as well as other games (GalCiv2).

        for example, take the following screen-shot using xbmc with vaapi support:

        libva1 v0.31.1+sds4

        xbmc svn ( revision 32181 )
        Hi Dandel,

        I am not that skilled with linux so I am struggling compiling vlc/mplayer with VA API without affecting the my Lucid 64 installation.
        Am i correct to say that there is nothing to expect for evergreen (HD5xxx) users from VaAPI and XvBA?

        What will be your recommendation in order to be able to watch DVD, blue-rays and H264 movies without lags etc....?

        FYI I am using the fglrx 10.7 drivers but don't feel really satisfied with the quality of videos.

        Thanks in advance for some insights and directions so I know where to go with my HTPC.

        BTW do you know when XvBA will be supported on evergreens or when should we have a good vaapi implementation??

        Merci

          Use Intel or NVIDIA HW.

          I am sorry to tell you, but no fix is planned. BTW, the VA-API driver already exceeds what XvBA can do, since it implements some things with OpenGL that are missing in the XvBA/GL backend, or are terribly bugged or partially implemented. This is far from perfect as everything can't be workarounded and I actually don't care... I am really sorry but I am not a masochist and I am terribly fed up.

          ATI should just release the current mess if they don't want to fix anything and actually don't have anybody working on that for, uh, a very long time. The fact that Evergreen support is still broken shows that the original people that worked on XvBA @ ATI are no longer there (former trainees?) and very few people, if any, actually know what to do when new chips are released. I am still amazed by how trivial bugs are still there for a very long time... and people prefer waste time discussing whether the fix is really needed (sure it is!) vs. actually fixing the bug. Typically, a 48H round-trip spent for Q/A + convincing was more than enough to actually fix the bugs in the first place.

            "X-window no longer fails with some ATI card plugged in NV's C51 IGP board" - This is what I've been waiting for since the catalyst 9.9.

            Many thanks to ATI/AMD and all forum members who were involved in the discussion about the bug for finally solving the issue.

              hehehe one of the best comments on this forum ever.. It seems amd/ati did its thing again serving a canned horseshit full of bugs pretending to be a driver.. Well ati user folks.. The best thing to do is to change your gfx card (if it is a card) with an nvidia one till the gallium3d matures.. or switch to window$ which your gfx manufacturer urges you to do

                OK, ATI you've got me sold. Next few months I'll do the switch to one of your cards. Now, just release your open stereo-3d simultaneously on linux and windows.

                  Thanks Gbeauche for the info. That's sad to hear but if this is the case then we should either stop buying their stuff for linux or they should start investing in an OS getting more and more attention.

                  If using intel is better then ATI from a linux support standpoint then I may revert back to my Intel Graphics HD embedded video chip then the extra evergreen video card bought recently.

                    Is there a workaround for the freeze (mpd and sysrq was still working) issues with Wine games? I tried to play Team Fortress 2 and CS 1.6 and the system froze after a few minutes of playing.

                      Before I do another mistake, what would you recommend for a linux HTPC:
                      Nvidia or intel?

                      knowing that I have decided to sell my ATI card and that I already have the intel HD Graphics included within my motherboard&CPU.

                      My constraint is or at least was that intel drivers didn't support interlace modes like 1080i

                      thanks and sorry to deviate from the initial subject.

                        I stayed away from ATI for almost ten years because of that one.
                        What did you use in the meantime then?

                        Testing 10.7, with 2DAccel on, apart from the black (or gray) window issue, so far I can tell Guild Wars through Wine exhibits the same behavior as with 10.6, text is often scrambled when entering a new area, displaying the map and going back to the game screen fixes that. The cause might be the same as for the window "fill" or "refresh" whatever it's called. On the bright side it's less severe than with 10.6
