  • ATI 9600XT + 8.42.3 strange/misc problems

    Hi all, i'm trying today 8.42.3 drivers on KUbuntu Gutsy, first problem: fglrxinfo/glxinfo reports Opengl correctly:
    Code:
    alex@montreal:~$ fglrxinfo
    display: :0.0  screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI RADEON 9600 Series
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6958 Release
    while Catalyst control center reports:
    Code:
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI RADEON 9600 Series
    OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.2.1)
    MAybe it's just a little bug in the control center

    Video Playback: after
    Code:
    aticonfig --initial --overlay-type=Xv
    and
    Code:
    Option "TexturedVideo" "True"
    in my xorg.conf and COMPIZ-FUSION running ,my xserver crashes when playing a video file/DVB broadcast, when (rarely) it doesn't crash i get teared/corrupted video playback on the screen; without
    Code:
    Option "TexturedVideo" "True"
    i only get a blue output instead of the actual video file output; however if I set in compiz "Unredirect Fullscreen Windows" i get video output ONLY in fulscreen mode.

    Without compiz running I have no problems with video playback. Anyone having similar problems? Bye

    Ale
