    Does the GL memory leak bug affect X1600 mobility GPU's?

    If it doesn't I'll install this driver and give it a go but if it does there is no point fucking around doing it. I'll stick with whatever the default for gutsy.

      For your purpose you really don't need a dedicated gfx card...

          In this and previous release I have problem with cursor in my FC6. When I'm switching desktops sometimes cursor is changing to some random area of gray colors. Switching desktops back or just moving around screen so cursor can change its shape at the edges of windows corrects this problem. I wonder if its driver, configuration or KDE related problem. HWCursor option in confing is not solving problem. Any ideas?

              Hmpf, I thought they corrected that corruption thing.
              Try: Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"
              in your xorg.conf.

                Happier with it

                Acer Travelmate 4402WLMi laptop with ATI Radeon Mobility X700

                With 8.42.3 I had the problem with video tearing/corruption when trying to use the hardware overlay (while Compiz was enabled)... and actually I recently was unable to play any video files at all even with Compiz disabled (not sure why).

                Upgrading to this release
                -Video playback works with Compiz enabled or disabled
                -With compiz enabled, some flicker in video playback when NOT in full screen... when in full screen video plays fine with tolerable amount of tearing
                -Scrolling in Firefox still a bit slow. In Firefox 3.0b1 it is tolerable, compared to Firefox 2

                Overall I'm happier with this release - it has been an improvement, at least for me. I much prefer the look/feel of the desktop with being able to use Compiz - all of the fonts appear crisper to me and menus are more responsive, so this is important to me.

                    Same story here. Was really eager to install this, then big disappointment.

                    I wonder if it'd work if Gutsy actually had a 2.6.23 kernel. Maybe fglrx just checks for the kernel version and not for SLUB/SLAB and thus gets it wrong (IIRC a 2.6.22 kernel is not "supposed" to use SLUB)

                      too bad, all I was waiting for was working suspend/hibernate...so good bye ati, thanks God I can replace video card in my laptop and I have spare nVidia 6400

                      Dell 6400 users, if you have ati x1300 or x1400 then you can get used nVidia 6400 on eBay for 40 bucks and replace video card in 20 minutes, why suffer using ati?

                        I wish I could do that on my Acer Travelmate 8103 .

                          interestingly enough the issue related to CRT monitors that showed up in 8.42.3 is no longer an issue in this release.

                            What are they doing over there? I thought they would at least fix some bugs, but no: The "bus error" is back, and as such I can't start any OpenGL application with this driver.....

I used it to to change the position and size of the TV-OUT image and it worked like in Windows. But when I restarted X every change was lost. I had to use aticonfig(bliah).
                              Had the same issue in Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10/x64 ... had to go to System -> Screen Resolution and click the 'Make this default' box after the change. Don't know if this is some gnome tweak or what's going on under the covers, but it worked for me.

                              Also, aticonfig never worked right for me after login, so maybe it's a different issue.

                                I also have gutsy amd64 installed. But now I can't test your method(because I am bored and I don't want to have a nervous breakdown).

                                I think that Catalyst Center should write everything in x.org file like aticonfig. Otherwise what's the point of using Catalyst Center???
