    that's actually the first thing I tried, but I always keep getting that error...

      (uninstall all previous instances of fglrx first, but don't reboot till you finish the manual install)

      Make sure to block fglrx in the restricted drivers too.
      Still mesa instead of ati
      Code:
      fglrxinfo
      display: :0.0  screen: 0
      OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: www.mesa3d.org
      OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
      OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.0.1)
      Any ideas?

        I have this strangest bug for quite some time now, and its the same with this newest version of fglrx. Same goes for different kernels and Xorg versions.

        Thing is, X hangs when I try to start a second X, or do Switch User in GNOME. Now the funniest part is, if I start X then close it and start it again, all is fine, I can start a second X simultaniously or do switch user without hanging. Help?

        I checked it with vesa and open-source drivers and they both work fine, dont hang.

          Extract it to /etc/ati/custom-package and then with the 8.42 package run --buildpkg custom-package/7.10 (or 7.04 for Feisty)

            compiz is working pretty good for me except from a bit of corruption. Although quake4 freezes and I can get etqw to start but it freezes before the game play start. At lest we are seeing some real progress and in the next few months we might have something stable. Although I don't know if most of my problems are from my card x1900xtx or using feisty instead of gutsy with a newer x.

              it needs to be reported in fglrx-driver (Ubuntu), can you move it or re-report it. thanks.

                  same here, still using mobility fireGL (R250). I guess it is time to spend some money,

                  kinda weird that the devices that gave name to the driver are shunned.

                    Google m'boy, google.... Follow the hard directions, I havn't had a chance to try this on the 8.42 driver, but it works great for the 8.41 driver.

                          That did the trick. Thanks.

                          Unfortunately, Xvideo output from mplayer/xine is still corrupted (incorrect colors, weird lines, diagonal tearing.) And mythfrontend now crashes on launch. OpenGL video output from mplayer, however, is no longer tearing! All of the GL YUV conversion modes that used to work in 8.40 now cause mplayer to crash, though, requiring software conversion. Now to see if I can get mplayer to play 1920x1080 video with deinterlacing without pegging the CPU; I'm getting bad framedropping with the defaults even on a 2.4GHz C2D.

                          XvMC...someday...hopefully.
