    Just switch off wobbly windows, it doesn't have any use anyway. I think it's annoying too.
    even without wobbly and other wowie-zowie fx plugins my head and eyes hurt a lot when using it :/

    i thought it was the refresh rate, but i don't use a crt monitor :/

            He could tell you, but he would have to kill you after that

            Just kidding

              how about in xvideo support for RS690 chipsets?

              it's a shame for amd/ati, that the the standard onboard chip can not play videos in linux since product launch (mor than 6 months ago)...

                The AMD Linux GPG group is and will be putting forward a lot of work with the RS690.

                  :-(, so no xivdeo support in the next release, too bad.

                  i hope the chipset will be supported by the radeonhd driver soon. but is there xvideo currently working with already supported cards?

                    The RS690 should be supported already. AMD's video method of choice is TexturedVideo, which does use X-Video.

                      Should? Ok, tested today/yesterday with Centos5 and Fedora 7, with 8.41.7 and 8.40.4. Similar result always. Black screen and Xorg taking 100% of CPU.

                      I'm not very impressed in ATI drivers. This was my first go with them. Oh and luckily i haven't been able to get ANY graphical out of it. Not even with "vesa" driver.

                      Maybe tomorrow i will test radeonhd or avivo, if i want to play more, but i think i will reject the hardware and choose something that works out of the box.

                        If he give to me a copy of the driver, after he can kill me on a multiplayer video game.

                          AMD has told me the RS690 is well supported and suggested I run some Linux tests. But I say "should" since I haven't gotten around to trying it out yet.

                            that answer i got on the radeonhd mailing list:
                            RS690 is still very much on our todo list. So we can't support this yet.
                            RS690 hardware is available though, we just need to find the time.

                              Ok. Well it didn't seem like it and that RS690 name for it wasn't so obvious, lspci just speaks about X1200 and there wasn't X1200 listed in AMD pages. Readme told that it's supported but the download page for the driver doesn't even list it.

                              But my interests about testing/playing isn't high and i don't even know how long i will have the machine at my hands. I'm just doing compability tests to see which laptop we will choose.

                              Machine in question is Dell Latitude D631, it's intel counterpart (D630) worked out of the box with graphics

                                did you mean fglrx or radeonhd?

                                on fglrx i get this (8.41.7):
                                Code:
                                (WW) fglrx(0): Textured Video is currently not supported on IGP hardware.
                                with latest radeonhd i get the driver loading but no xvideo extension is available.
