    Hi,
    on my private computers i was finished with ati, or better i had and will never use ati gfx boards. The big shit is, that my firm is a "Thinkpad-buyer". I have a T43 with an ATI radeon x300.

    No, the latest driver will not run with the FC 7 X.

    I compiled it one hour ago. X still segfaults.

    No, i make no downgrade, i use the radeon module at the moment.

    Sadly, i do not know how to switch to powerstate 1 with the radeon
    driver.

    CU,

      What's so special about FC7's X server?
      The driver DOES run with xorg-server 1.3, latest linux rc release
      and quite well too (no problems with XVideo and Postal2 under
      wine)
      The CCC still won't run but I can live without it.

        Hmm havent tried xv in a couple releases. Are you sue it works? I can confirm that fglrx wirks fine with xorg 1.3(probably vanilla) on Arch. CCC works for me btw

          It's a XCB issue (from the error I gather it is a xlib locking
          imbalance in the qt3 library the CCC is statically linked against)

            Still can't understand people aiming for AIGLX when you have the above issue.
            I agree! Is there any way to fix this at all? It's driving me up the wall. Also Xvideo output is totally corrupted with 8.38.6.

              it's been this way since 8.36. if it weren't for xorg-server 1.3 incompatibility i would still be using 8.35
