Did you try to use aticonfig from the command line? ...
Yes, I have tried a number of combinations including forcing TVout to "on" all to no avail. After exhausting "aticonfig" as an option I had hoped that the Catalyst Control Centre would work but that has not been the case.
If AMD/ATI provided better documentation for the "aticonfig --add-cvmode=WIDTH,HEIGHT,FLAGS,BASEWIDTH,BASEDHEIGHT,RE FRESH." command with examples I might get some where. For instance what the heck are "FLAGS" and what are acceptable values?
I have spent many hours searching the net, using "aticonfig" and even building my own xorg.conf all with no results. I even went through my working Windows Catalyst Control Centre *.xml profile trying to find out what settings could be used.
FYI: Just tried to build it on x86_64 Fedora 8 / Rawhide. First of all it needs that kernel 2.6.23 patch that someone graciously posted earlier in the thread. Then it builds but it fails with not being able to find a directory with X11R6 in it. Finally, if I extract the files to say ./tmp and manually try ./ati-installer.sh --listpkg I get an error. It only works when I do ./ati-installer.sh - --listpkg. If more info is required lemme know and I'll have another go and post the exact logs/output.
Installed and running 8.42.3. I had to do a "ln -s libGL.so.1.2 libGL.so.1" to fix the missing libGL issue.
Suspend still doesn't work on Ubuntu 7.10, Ubuntu bug #121653, as the new SLUB allocator prevents fglrx from suspending.
Selecting xv in xine crashes X (returns to gdm).
Non-xv video (with TexturedVideo enabled) runs and is smooth, but it flickers a lot (in fullscreen too).
Same for OpenGL apps.
OpenGL apps and videos (with TexturedVideo) are drawn directly on screen, i.e. compiz can't zoom them or map them onto the sides of the cube while rotating, they remain on the screen in their original size/position.
Getting occasional compiz freezes (with mouse pointer still moving) as in Ubuntu bug #108527 and in Compiz Fusion bug #524. After the freeze I was able to do Alt-SysRq-R and switch to a terminal to see compiz.real using 100% cpu (infinite loop somewhere?).
Typing on gnome text-editor is really slow (holding a key pressed), while doing it on emacs-gtk seems as fast as before.
Scrolling in Firefox is pretty slow, compared to when Compiz is not running.
I think introducing AIGLX support is a pretty big step for AMD, and hopefully we'll see it get better and better in terms of performance, right Michael?
BTW Michael, which of these problems can we expect to be fixed in next month's driver?
