    You know, looking back at the previous releases (8.42, 8.43, and so forth), this release has had (in my percieved opinion) less problems among users.

    Sure there are people who picked up this release, installed it and watched it flop and fail to meet their expectations again. Some have gone over to Nvidia/Intel solutions if they can afford to. But I'm seeing it a bit less this time, and more success stories.

    As for me, since 8.43, the driver has worked for me with basic setup, and Xv mode on, and going through the way of Step 2 before ATI got it working for Step 1 on Ubuntu systems.
    If I disregard the problems with freeze on logout caused by atieventsd, then yeah, I'd have to agree. This looks like one of the better releases.

    • i have editted my post from page 16. this is what is new. have u experienced something similar or i am the only one? and if i am not, how can i fix it?

      -- loosing acceleration during usage (after several restarts of applications that use fglrx, i have to reboot to get my preformance back) fgl_fglxgears is droping something like this after every Counter-Strike:Source restart 630fps -> 420fps -> 30fps. I think even restarting fgl_fglxgears makes these errors. well this happens to me with every driver after 8.40.4. looks like some problem with memory.

        I get those errors every time some 3D app. is launched, like a game for example.

            I have exactly the same issue with 7.11 (with the same card), but I'm not sure about the dmesg warnings

              Dell. They don't use standardized MXM interfaces, so have to see if Dell has an upgrade for you.

              1st, its VERY EXPENSIVE, 2nd cooling issues might appy, 3rd you may be unlucky to have something say, put in orginal blabla, i got hp laptops etc which doesnt want to change wireless cpu videocards dvd rom, nothing else than memory.
              It's mostly working fine on my laptop with a X700. No heat issues so far and I've had mine running for hours...although I haven't significantly stressed it.

              • 8.01 are working very fine for me, with a X700 Mobility.
                The only thing I noticed, is the screen flicker when switching of resolution.

                  Yes. I also noticed I didn't need to add the overlay command. I wonder if FireGL cards work with the default video overlay settings even when using AIGLX.

                    The e1705 series seems to be something on an enigma. The card is easily swapped out by removing the keyboard with any standard laptop type PCIe card. In fact, Dell gives you instructions on how to do this yourself. There are quite a few websites with articles dedicated to which cards work well, etc, but none tell you where to pick one up on the cheap. And searching for 7800Go, etc really doesn't help much either.

                      AIGLX, video, and suspend are working. I am using the default xorg.conf after running aticonfig --initial. No additional modifications necessary.

                            Try installing the driver through ATI's setup system (run the file without parameters). That worked for me when I couldn't build the packages for debian.

                              I'm observing degraded performance over time (uptime of about 17 hours now). FPS of fgl_glxgears dropped by 100 (~950-850), 2D feels more sluggish. I have no idea what causes it. Just wild speculation but I am getting these errors:
                              [61304.664000] [fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x00000002 not found in mutex list

                              Restarting X brings performance back up to normal. "Normal" 2D performance in fglrx-land = sucks, so I cannot accept further lowered 2D performance over time.

                              I've had enough. Enough. Enough. Back to 8.37.6, once again. Now I'm going to ask my employer for a new laptop.

                                Same here...

                                Notable performance drop w/ drivers 7.11 & 8.1 (7.12 was useless due to resolution bug).
