    Yeh same here Kitof, I'm very disapointed. Although playing video under 7.11 is working fine so I might stay with this release. Scrolling can hitch sometimes but its not bad enough to downgrade back to 8.34.8 as I also have to downgrade xorg-server too.

    I'm going to search on the net for possible solutions but I don't hold much hope as 8.34.8 didn't have the error so why should this?

      I should change the topic for this thread, prob gonna start a new one then to continue this as it's getting far off topic.

      I'm installing the driver now. Since i'm lucky to still have my old 9500Pro, which happens to work great, I'm kinda slow with testing this stuff out

      I'll pop the X1950Pro AGP back in a sec, then i'll start the thread. This clearly needs more exposure.

        Improvement and error GONE

        I've just copied the below into a new xorg.conf file and behold! the error with regards to AGP are gone.

        dmesg : states the xserver is falling back to kernel-AGP support, appearing so, this is not a driver issue but rather a kernel issue.

        Half-Life still does not run and neither is GL-Desktop enable-able but that i'll investigate further asap.

        I had pretty much the same symptoms.

        XGL has still problem :

        Code:
        fgl_glxgears 
        Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
        X Error of failed request:  GLXUnsupportedPrivateRequest
          Major opcode of failed request:  144 (GLX)
          Minor opcode of failed request:  16 (X_GLXVendorPrivate)
          Serial number of failed request:  42
          Current serial number in output stream:  43
        Bu AIGLX is very fast!

        I had also corruption on screen, which are fixed now.
        compiz has a problem with windows manager. If I use instead beryl, all is fine. I tested OpenGL Performance with Quake4... compare to 8.40.4 it's turbo bust!

        here my xorg.conf

          As for
          I had also corruption on screen, which are fixed now.
          I belive
          Code:
          Option      "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
          is responsible for that


          Admin can you lock this thread please?

            I got this problem as well.

            I'm having a black screen, freezing problem with fglrx as well. Here's what I think is relevant:

            -ati radeon x1950 pro agp
            -nforce3 chipset

            I couldn't find an AGP aperture setting in the bios.

            Right now I'm using radeonhd. It'd be nice if I had XVideo working, so I could watch things in mplayer with scaling.

              sfultong, any interesting messages in your log ?

              fyi, radeon (aka -ati) has xvideo support now, and that code is being ported to radeonhd so it should have it soon as well. Also, if you feel brave, we have 3d running on the 5xx parts with both radeon and radeonhd so if you pick up the VERY latest code you could try using opengl output to get nice scaling.

              The radeonhd 2D code doesn't use DRM so 2D accel gets disabled if you're using 3D, but that will also get fixed when we port across fresh accel code.

                Very nice. I probably won't bother compiling those myself, but when Ubuntu packages it up I'll be right on it.

                here's the tail of my xorg log:

                drmGetBusid returned ''
                (II) Loading sub module "fglrxdrm"

                (II) Loading sub module "ddc"

                I'll try turning off ddc and see what happens.

                edit: nope, didn't work.
