    No such issue here, although FPS tank in WINE with vsync on.

    (I've also noticed that I can't click on buttons in TF2's menu, actually I can only navigate with the arrow keys, but then again a quick googling points towards a TF2/old code bug.)
    No it is not. Always before the installation new one I uninstalled older one by sudo dpkg -P ... so there is no chance to have the configuration files associated with this packages in /etc. This is not a matter of vsync ... how could I have vsync enabled and such that showed me Xonotic 270 FPS [60 Hz monitor refresh] ... maximum standard on E-350 it was 120 [all effects except AA turned on to maximum and I've got full liquidity - here is 'my kernel' - line Brazos - specially optimized for the newer AMD - config level and already in the process of compilation]. By the way, builds four lines of kernels: K8, atom, i7 and Brazos - look in goggles: ext73, NeteXt'73 and my youtube channel: ext73.

      How could I know that from the info you provided in your previous pst?
      Has the bug been reported yet? I did a seearch for "mouse", "input" and "delay" on the Bugzilla and nothing turned up.

        Anyone had any luck with compiling against kernel 3.10?

        Patches for 3.9 & 3.10 are not enough as compile fails with an error

        any hints?

          This is a truly great release for me!

          An annoying bug I filed has been finally fixed*.
          http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=733

          Thank you!

          [*] There is a slight chance the bug has simply gone with XServer 1.14,
          but I don't think so as the issue was not present with XServer 1.13 with intel IGPs.
          So I can't tell for sure if it has been actively fixed.
          Anyhow, great to see it's gone.

            Sleep Broken

            Just updated to the beta drivers (w/ Xorg 1.14 finally) in Arch Linux (using the catalyst-test package), and sleep is now totally broken for me in KDE. Basically, if I close my laptop lid, it goes into sleep mode, but when I open it again, I just get a blank back lit screen. Didn't happen with any of the previous drivers...

              ATM on Arch we are using the patch for kernel 3.10 made by kolasa: https://github.com/kolasa

              Due to changes in kernel 3.10 (like removed create_proc_entry) this patch is only a workaround that will let You to build fglrx module successfully (proper procfs handling should be provided by AMD).

              Here's the link to the original patch for catalyst 13.4: http://catalyst.wirephire.com/files/...lrx_3.10.patch

              If you need a patch for catalyst 13.6 then here's my trivially modified version: http://catalyst.wirephire.com/files/...nux_3.10.patch

                  I have not reported this bug yet, but you can see I'll have to do it :P

                    I had this problem on debian but not slackware. On debian I fixed it by editing the /etc/default/grub file so the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line looked like this...

                    Code:
                    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet vga=792 radeon.modeset=0 nomodeset"
                    "nomodeset radeon.modeset=0 vga=792" was added by me.

                    Then run "sudo update-grub" and reboot.

                      Unfortunately this does not work - at least in my case. This is obviously a mistake OpenGL driver - who appeared in the driver version 13.3 beta 2 - and then fixed in 13.3 beat3 and again has been "intensified" in 13.4 and 13.6 beta
