  • 10-7 force me to use the radeon driver because:

    On ubuntu 10.10 64bit i have a mini/maximize LAG like non direct2D catalyst 10-5 versions in the 10-7 catalyst

    and then i install the 32bit version and i get graphic corruptions if i scrol horizontal

    this bug makes me crazy.. can't read the phornix forum in zoomed because i can't scrol without broke the view.
    yes also 10-7 catalyst.


    so now i use the radeon driver and wow i can read the phoronix forum without any corruption and flash videos work very good overall i get peace. (yes yes r700 hd4670)


    i really don't understand the 'catalyst' release Philosophy
    100 time more money compared to the radeon driver means bigger 'fire' and burn more money.
    well the catalyst 10-8 will come fast this month means the monkeys comes out of the madhouse a little earlier.

      What the hell?? Do yourself a favor and get some qt-gtk themes or whatever... that is the ugliest firefox I've seen in a long time.

            try using opengl compositing with kwin (you're obviously using kwin) or as an alternative: compiz-fusion

            that should minimize those corruptions

              thank you very much

              next time if i had time i will test more.

              but i think the catalyst 10-8 release will be faster

                  right now i have zero fglrx in usage on 6 systems ;-)

                  i only try out fglrx on 1 system for wine testing.
