    I'd like to know this also. It seems to me that this would be about the only reason I'd risk any regressions by upgrading.

    Anyone have any success with suspend/resume on Gutsy where they didn't previously?

    Thanks,

      At least there is (currently) working 2.6.23.x support

      Now that I have a working 2.6.23.x configuration, I'll be able to upgrade this laptop to Fedora 8 this weekend.
      And I'm getting about 2670 fps out of glxgears, although World of Warcraft / Wine is still not working with pixel shaders or "Mark 2" (vertex?) shaders enabled.

        I'll recompile my kernel tomorrow, I'll also compile a SLUB version.
        But I thought maybe he has got the info, that might spare time.

          Still crashing in Textured Video on Fedora 7

          *sigh*. They still haven't fixed this issue with Xvideo playback:

                - Installed fglrx 7.11/8.43 this afternoon (Mobility X300, Gutsy Gibbon)
                - Pressed suspend button
                - Watched the driver act like 8.42
                - Died a little inside

                But Compiz seems to be running more smoothly (a noticeable difference).

                Someone else please confirm my SLUB/8.43 findings.
                Or deny - that would be nice.

                  Yeah, what they did is cross out "8.42.3" and write 7.11 on it.

                    Huge disappointment

                    Should I really be surprised ? None of the serious flaws and issues that plague fglrx have been fixed. This is just insane, and I'm getting ready to throw my ATI-X1400-based laptop out of the window (better than installing Windows on it).



                    * Proper and stable XVideo support ? Hahahahaa !

                    * Good 2D-acceleration ? Hahahhaa !

                    * Working suspend-to-RAM-support, since this new version is said to officially support 2.6.23 kernel ? Hahahahaaha !

                    * Stability when running multiple X-sessions ? Hahahaha !

                    * Leaking memory like a coffee filter (OpenGL-apps).

                    * Composited Compiz-environment through AIGLX still slow, unstable and shows diagonal tearing. Forget playing movies using anything by plain X11-shm output.

                    * Firefox-scrolling in Compiz-environment horrible.

                    * Firefox-scrolling i standard 2D still sucks for some sites (blaming poor 2D-acceleration).

                    Damn, I hate being so negative.

                    Hoping for improvements in next release, but I have a feeling my hardware will be totally obsolete before fglrx ever gets any good. Tired of waiting *sigh* and actually spending so much energy focusing on a freakin' driver, instead of just using Linux to its fullest potential.

                      Uhh disappointed

                      Most useless release ever. Is there even a point in updating? Does it fix anything important? Glad I wasn't waiting on this release like 8.42.3 I would have been in store for even more of a disappointment at least the last release presented AIGLX even though it was/still is somewhat broken.
