'Juddery' application windows after a new linux installation
What's wrong with being concerned about the install process?
Nothing but your concern posts always seem to boil down to Nvidia is better than ATI. Please if you love Nvidia so much, there's a separate nvidia section on phoronix. And they have also their own forums.
Great that the problem is solved. Although... kernel 2.6.9?? I had to read that number a few times, and then check the post date to make sure I was reading right. That's like from the Cretaceous period or something. It's a wonder that everything else works fine with such an old kernel.
@Armin fglrx only gives problems on the more recent kernels/X.org versions. It supports offially X.org 6.7 -> 7.5
If one uses Ubuntu 10.04 or Debian Testing/Sid, do you have to upgrade the kernel to use Evergreen cards? I read about users having to use 2.6.35 or even .36 kernels to use latest 10.10 Catalyst driver.
I got a segfault when I upgraded fglrx to 8.780 from the x-swat ppa. Problem solved now that I upgraded Kubuntu to 10.10
Panix, you started looking when HD4xxx were just out, HD6xxx will be out in October.
Then you can either pick up a cheap HD5xxx, or continue with wondering why the drivers suck on HD6xxx. I see where this is going
Before I was upgrading a card I already had. Now, I virtually have no card. I am currently using my laptop. I have an older legacy ATI card that I had loaned out but I'd rather use a more 'up-to-date' card.
Then use your old ati card, because that can work with ati oss and that allows nice playback - just dont install fglrx.
Yes, I know fglrx drivers are not supported for the particular ATI card I have - X300SE. I think it is RV370. I haven't used it for eons, though. I guess I will find out what performance/playback is like with it.
