    so does support for composite mean we are getting nearer to AIGLX support in the near future?? I am hoping for something exciting to happen on the ati linux driver front esp. with the proposed openGL code rewrite release scheduled for aug. (acc 2 the rumour mills atleast)

      Those "crappy" 8600gts are starting to look better and better to me...
      Just maybe sometimes its better to not release anything than release something largely irrelevant. On a side note xorg 1.3 seems quite stable to me in Arch

        There will be no special driver release out in the next week or two.

          Another useless driver release by ATI...

          I feel sorry for you FC7 users...

          People commenting about composite: it doesn't work correctly?

            If this driver isn't your cup of tea, name the next ATI driver: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3511

              From my experience, it can be enabled, but not usable (screen corruptions all over the place).

                Does ANYONE read at ATI the comments that users fill on their site in the Linux Crew Feedback?
                I get a feeling they all go directly to /dev/null.

                It makes me sad that i have to downgrade to previous OS cause i can't use drivers. It makes me sad that i feel like a kid waiting a f****ing Christmas hoping to get bike and getting a ruler instead.

                again... can they post a freaking RoadMap for the linux drivers? this way if i see that fglrx coming in 3 months and FC7 support in 5 months - i will sleep much better and will move on to the next things waiting with patience till the date on calendar.

                Otherwise - it's really upsetting

                PS. and no, i will not tolerate installing FC7 and downgrade only xorg, i would rather install FC6 back till better days.

                  The comments from the feedback page are read, but not by the people who really should be reading them.

                  They will not be posting any roadmap. Your best bet is for the information I am able to pass along at Phoronix

                    hahaha.... yeah wrong people read them - what a surprise !? this is very common to big companies

                    and i think my est bet would have been getting my Lenovo with Intel graphics or nvidia... eh well.

                    let's hope for another best bet - reading this forum.

                      Sorry fellas, i'm having period i guess today )
                      Just now, on my laptop booted to windows xp pro, went to ati site, find drivers, choose os, choose my card, latest driver says - we are sorry your system is not compatible with this release. Please contact your laptop vendor.

                      WHAT? WTF??? are they off their nut??

                      This is a bottom line - ati seem to be going down hill very fast.
