However, suspend broke. Goddamn it. It turns off the screen, the harddrive spins up, and then nothing. Dead. I have to do a hard reset.

    This after you installed 8.1?

      Anyone here has problems restarting X ?
      If I press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace my PC freezes (only with the background image).

      Damn you ATI! Get your act together!!

        For the Fedora packaging bug, I'll push updated scripts to Phorogit for it tonight once I get back to my hotel.

            Anyone know of a fix or is it just down to ATI to get it sorted?
            Scrolling in Firefox with AIGLX enabled is impossible. It's REALLY SLOW depending on the content (eg: flash animation).

            So, I've updated my driver to get system crash when restarting X and no improvements at all. Nice.

                another crappy release?
                they can not call this new version - it is just patch, which fixes the modelines support. I can't see any new fixes.
                x1600xt is rotting now under my windows.
                and nobody wants to buy my laptop, because of builtin ati videocard! :-E

                  Well I'm dead in the water. I have updated to 8.1 but it crashes when ever I try to configure Xorg through Yast (My old settings don't work either Xorg crashes)

                  Im not entirely sure what section of the log I should post but others have posted the Backtrace section so here it is.
                  Code:
                  	Backtrace:

                  	Fatal server error:
                  	Caught signal 11.  Server aborting

                  IGP: ATI Radeon X1200 Series - RS690M

                  I guess im back to testing radeonhd until the next release.

                    Everything good except for XV

                    Things are working great here on my T60. Suspend is working again and compiz is fast. The only thing left for me is the xv playback. Oh and Google earth is all flickery.

                    Slowly but surely things are getting better

                      Yep, it’s 0x71D4. Where am I supposed to “hack” the ID?

                        For me a good driver release:
                        - Widescreen is working again,
                        - The memory leak is no more, (I can't use 7.12 on a widescreen)
                        - distortion on the lower right is no more,
                        - suspend works

                        Unfortuantly, compiz feels faster, but not fast enough.

                          Well the Release notes state:
                          Suspending to RAM or DISK on kernel version 2.6.23 or later no longer fails
                          Well on my up-to-date gutsy "uname -r" gives:
                          2.6.22-14-generic
                          So there's your problem!!!

                            8.01 doesn't work for me.

                            Well, after installing this driver, I cannot even get into the GDM login screen. I just get a blank, black screen with nothing else. ALT-CTRL-F1 or F2 doesn't work. I have to hard-reset.

                            Any ideas on why this is happening? 8.40.4 works just fine. It's what I am using now in place of any of the new drivers. Any driver after 8.40.4 gives me the same problems.

                            Any help would be really appreciated.
