      Here's something weird that happens with 10.10, that I've never seen before: 10.10 seems to somehow limit my backlight brightness to something like 25% or 50% of the maximum brightness. In fact, it had me worried that my inverter was failing, until I booted Windows and found that not to be affected.

      Edit: switching to TTY makes it bright again, so maybe it's not the backlight, after all...

        Damn 1-minute limit... whoever did that should have all his pencils be confiscated, forever -- let's force him to write with pen for the rest of his life.

        Anyway, it looks like "Deep Bit Depth Pixel" was to blame -- it somehow downscaled the max RGB value, or such. Oddly enough, the Xorg log still claimed 24-bit color depth!

        What is Deep Bit Depth Pixel supposed to really do, anyway? I'd imagine it's about 30-bit displays, but does anyone have any more info than that?

            Catalyst 10.10 has major bugs with wine on ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit). The regression is that multiple models are not being rendered and are invisible.... see the following bug report:
            http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1942

            Tested Games: (all use similar rendering api )
            Alien Swarm (wine v1.2.1 only, but still shows regression)
            Left 4 Dead (Wine v1.2.1 and 1.3.5 where both tested on this)
            Left 4 Dead 2 (wine v1.2.1 only, but still shows regression)

              Alien Swarm picture is exactly how EverQuest has been looking..only the text issue seems to have been mostly fixed..some missing at the log-in screen but looks ok once in-game.. Characters are either invisible or partially empty suits of armor.

                  No, he probably had /home on a different partition to make reinstalls easier.
