  • With so much self-confidence and no real questions and answers... The fglrx driver (AMD.ATI DRIVER) ISSUES are going to last for a very very long time.
    Look at these snapshots. Relax. And take your time. I know there is no problem. Just be positive and everything gonna be alright.

    All snapshots were taken "with desktop effects disabled".

    • and of course you compare the exact same frame, do you?
      in everyday video watching, the differences are small enough, not to bother me. And flash simply works perfectly. Just upgrade to a non-broken version.

      • No, it's not the exact same frame... +/- 0.100 sec.
        And even with xshm driver output, there is still flickering (not so much, but it's there).

        The difference in picture quality is absolutely obvious. And there are 41 pages with other users, which are capable of seeing it.

        • it might be obvious when you put them next to each other or comparing screen shots, but in normal usage?

          and hey, is it really so bad to turn of effects while watching a video? If you are watching so closely that shm's degradion becomes prominent, desktop effects are either not needed or just very disturbing.

          • As I said... With so much self-confidence and no real questions and answers... Just "(re)read" post #406 TO THE END, pls.

            No more off-topic posts.

            • I did. Wtf 'off topic'?

              • Would it pretty please be possible to get unstable nightly (or even weekly) builds of the fglrx driver? A month is quite a long time. It would also help in testing because more frequent updates means you have less edits between two versions so regression testing is easier. (That is, it'd be possible for the end-user to help even without the sources or special tools)
                I know there's a beta program (that you have to sign an NDA to join) but I suspect the NDA scares people off. I think nightly builds could be automated so the system shouldn't take that much maintenance.

                • th beta program - yeah. How good are the chances to become a tester anyway?

                    • yeah , and talking about flickering is on topic, right?

                      Comment


                      • There is one question for the ATI developers that struggles me: How comes that you break the support for an entire product line, don't notice it during your extensive beta tests, dont't offer a hotfix and don't manage to fix this bug in the next release? Any OSS project would be dead after such a mess.

                        Don't you know that reliability is one of the most important aspects of a developer-customer-relationship? You disappoint. Again.

                        • and what are you talking about?

                          btw - several OSS projects have been broken in that way - and survived somehow.

                          I have a real question: when has been the fglrx-sysrq being introduced?

                            I'm talking about the fact that fglrx doesn't work with R300 hardware, anymore.

                            • luckily for you R300 hardware is well supported by the open drivers.

                              Just ask nvidia geforce fx 5XXX or geforce 4 users about 'no drivers'.

                                3D performance is not that good.

                                I just wonder how such a bug can pass even the poorest quality assurance. And why they don't fix it ASAP. A comparable bug in the open drivers would be fixed within days, if not hours. I mean, it worked before.
