    I heard at least one X200M user report success.
    Unfortunately I'm having serious problems with my X200M/1100M.

    The driver only works in 2D. 3D is not working at all, every app that tries to use it will give: Bus error. When I activate AIGLX the X-server will crash, leaving my computer totally unusable: No SysRq, nothing.

    Am I doing something wrong or is there some kind of bug in the kernel module? I'm running OpenSUSE 10.3 on a customly compiled 2.6.22.5-kernel.

    My xorg.conf:

    • I'm having the exact same error as c0un7d0wn. I'm using Gutsy with the default compiz package (0.6 I think), on a laptop. I have yet to find way to fix it.

      This is strange.

      serkan@zoidberg ~ $ fglrxinfo
      display: :0.0 screen: 0
      OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
      OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600
      OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 Release

      serkan@zoidberg ~ $ glxinfo | grep ATI
      OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
      OpenGL renderer string: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600

      serkan@zoidberg ~ $ glxinfo | grep GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap
      GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap,
      GLX_SGIX_visual_select_group, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap

      AIGLX is enabled. Composite is enabled. 3d is working. I get ~5000 on glxgears and ~1000 fgl_glrx and yet:

      serkan@zoidberg ~ $ compiz --indirect-rendering --replace gconf
      compiz (core) - Fatal: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
      compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
      compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

      compiz does not work. This is on amd64 gentoo. Does anybody have any ideas?

        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
        xcompmgr is working but extremely slow when moving windows around with metacity.

        • This driver doesn't work for me. As soon as I start X the screen goes black followed by a 'no signal'-message of my monitor. Same with TV-out. Xorg.0.log shows no errors. This sucks.

          Debian sid, 2.6.22, Xorg 7.3, Radeon X1800 XT

            It's a sandbox bug. Try with:

            Code:
            FEATURES="-sandbox" emerge -pv ati-drivers
            but i just tried to do the same and patchset is not valid for this new driver. Finally I install it using the ATI installer.

              Finally someone with the same configuration and the same problem

              • You should be able to overwrite 8.41 with 8.42.

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

                  • I have Ubuntu Gutsy(7.10) 32bit with the propriety ati driver version 8.40.4, so do I need to uninstall that prior to installing the new one? If so, how would I do it? (btw, I used the easy method of running the .run file at the command-line)
