    True story.
    As soon as I installed and upgraded a few of them, I was told about brokeb packages and that compiz-dev needed to be removed. So I did. Then Compiz stopped working. (Obviously) Then I tried to reinstall Compiz and now I had like 40 graphics related broken packages.
    In addition, my renderer string did not show up with Gallium3D, but with something not even Bridgman recognizes.
    That, to me, spells "fucked up the core" - and since I have an exam tomorrow, I decided to get rid of it before it really damaged my system.
    write an bugreport to Tormod Volden: tormod.volden at gmail dot com

    but he also reads the phoronix forums.. be sure he fix that.

      Anywho, I don't think so either. THat's why I said it the way I did - I hope it will happen someday.
      Both isn't on the fokus for the radeon driver: fast means ugly hacks and refraction the code and app/game specific hacks,

      good means no ugly hacks and no app/game specific hacks and no bugfixing of apps/games in the driver.

(Can't minimize full-screen windows, tons of missing features from OpenGL 3+, crashes after 2 entrances into X, no AA, no VSync, no XvBA, the list goes on...)
      i think any bugreport for catalyst 10.10-10.12 isn't helpfull because 11.01 pulls an big bang and only bugreports for that versions matters.

        This bug doesn't happen with KDE!

        Ok so this bug is GNOME+FGLRX. No other combination triggers it.

        Good thing I like KDE so much more but always had trouble getting it to work. Well, funny enough it works fine now but GNOME doesn't. So KDE it is.
