    mewit. Outside the edit window: http://boards.cityofheroes.com/showp...28&postcount=1 has been updated as well. I think the information there-in is accurate...

    • Note that some of the contacts you recommended in the first link are Linux-specific while others are mostly Windows-focused. The COH thread seemed pretty Windows-y...

      It's probably worth mentioning that bugs which happen on supported distros will normally get more attention than bugs which have only been seen on unsupported distros.

        Does this mean I should test with a supported distro (for example, pop in an ubuntu livecd) and re-report bugs that I have previously filed against unsupported distros? Is it good enough to merely add an update to the bug, assuming it happens on the supported distro?

          • Is it true that eyefinity has been disabled from catalyst 10.5?

            • When will they fix Window/Menu corruption...? At least 3 years old problem related to basic functionality and stil no fix for FGLRX. Yet Open Source Drivers fixed it.

                to my knowledge, it's never been working. Dual-Monitor works fine for me with all fglrx versions I tested (9.11 to 10.5), but according to some other threads in here, Triple-Monitor never has.

                In any case, please stop believing claims by that certain person. If you compare his post to the actual 10.5 changelog, you'll see why.

                • Here's my question to the ATI dev(s).

                  Are you aware of the VSync issue that creates tearing when moving windows (with/without Compiz) and when playing video? Is this something well known and will be fixed soon, or is this news to you?

                  Thank you

                  • Let me ask you a question back. If you were in the process of rewriting the 2D acceleration code do you think it would make a lot of sense to invest a lot of work in fine-tuning the code you were in the process of replacing ?

                      Should we understand your question as the fact that AMD is currently rewriting the 2D acceleration of fglrx? Not that I'm complaining, mind you; but, since there was little mention of it before, a confirmation (even indirect) doesn't hurt.

                      Will there be a way to switch between old and new code, at least for a few releases? Is the new code making use of dri2, allowing KMS, etc.?

                      You said you don't discuss future driver plans, but since this is currently being developed...
