      • Oh, and I still can't use any display bigger than 1280x1024 (well, 1280x2253 according to Xorg.0.log), which is annoying since my LCD's native resolution is 1440x900 (I can force it with a modeline, but I get graphical corruption around the edges - precisely as if everything outside of a 1280pixel box is being mirrored).

        I'm fairly sure X1950 Pros support this resolution in hardware...

          any x200m experiences????
          Working with the Xpress 200M, with AIGLX. Few caveats I've noticed: While Beryl is running, Scrolling in Firefox (or anything) is horrendously slow. Postal 2 now runs at playable framerates (old drivers would barely get over 2fps). There are some rendering issues in Legends ( http://legendsthegame.net ) but it's probably just a bug(s) in the game.

          • I use Gentoo, and I'm having install troubles. I modified the ebuild, renamed the patches and started emerging when I get this:

            Any think I might be able to do?

            • seems to be something amiss with fglrx and compiz 0.5.2 (at least the one in debian)

              after much debugging and researching I got it to segfault when I export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=1 (<--- hot tip for people right here)

              now I'm running metacity with xcompmgr and transset instead. 1920x1080 and cairo-clock, googlearth and glxgears running at 1600fps (double what I had with 8.40)

              well.. maybe I'll build compiz 0.6.2 one of these days, or I just might wait until my MV 5200 is officially supported in 8.43 instead of that ugly pci-hack (might be blamed as well).

              almost pleased so far

              • gep642, try disabling sandbox feature

                • hi michael ,

                  i m actually downloading it on my debian / testing with a radeon mobility hd 2400 .

                  Do i have to remove the 8.41.7 driver ??

                  Is the installation going to modify my xorg.conf automatically , or does i have to change something in it manually.

                  I m really afraid about not beeing able to use my computer tommorow at work

                  Thanks

                    I think you need to add add_predict in src_compile for /usr/src for sandbox.

                      You should be able to overwrite 8.41 with 8.42.

                      Run: aticonfig --initial as root to configure the xorg.conf.
