    its only for testing without 3D!!!

    it is version 8.493 only...
    Does really this version lack 3D support?

      Not sure what that post meant; maybe the poster had an issue with the kernel module not being installed or not initializing properly and getting slow/failing 3D as a result.

      re: the version numbers, this is Catalyst 8.5, ie the 5th release of 2008, which also happens to be internal release number 8.493.

        Are there any code changes with the new version? I'm hesitant to retry it, as it seems unlikely...

        Also, my last post appears to have not made it. To wit: http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1139

          I'm pretty sure it's just a packaging change -- wouldn't expect anything other than the watermark to be affected.

            My thoughts too. Looks like I'm sticking to 8.4 for a while. *sigh*. I was looking forward to this update, too - wine keeps failing with literally every directx app I care to try (it didn't with my old nvidia card), and I was hoping a driver update would fix it.

            This is what I get for rampant fanboyism, I guess . I only bought ATI because they'd been bought by AMD, and they were doing the open-source thing. If I'd thought on it more, I'd have stuck to nvidia for a year or two more.

              If you have examples of DX apps which work with wine on another card but not with our current driver can you let us know ?

                Sure. The main example is the game "audiosurf". Other ones that don't work are NWN2 (not tested with the old nvidia card), the DXDiag 3D acceleration test(!) (with all the native DirectX9 stuff installed).

                Here's what audiosurf says (with 8.4 drivers):
                fixme:d3d:test_pbo_functionality >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_OPERATION (0x502) from Loading the PBO test texture
                @ ../../../dlls/wined3d/directx.c / 3462
                fixme:d3d:IWineD3DDeviceImpl_CreateQuery (0x13e910) Unhandled query type 4
                wine: Unhandled page fault on execute access to 0x7c044b28 at address 0x7c044b28 (thread 000b), starting debugger...

                I have a 10GB full-debug-run-log of what happens to NWN2... it's not exactly fascinating, mind.

                Oh, and while I'm on the subject, fgl_glxgears -fbo hardlocks the computer (again, 8.4).

                    MAchine Specs:
                    Intel D101GGC MOBO
                    1 Gb generic RAM Memory
                    Intel Pentium D 805 2.66 GHz
                    Integrated Xpress 200 Graphic Card (256 MB of RAM Allocated)
                    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 160 GB Hard Drive

                    Main Issues with this release:

                    1- VLC still crashes with OpenGL output, throws this message:

                    [00000343] main private error: option glx-shm does not exist
                    libGL error: drmGetMagic failed
                    libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
                    X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
                    Major opcode of failed request: 143 (GLX)
                    Minor opcode of failed request: 5 (X_GLXMakeCurrent)
                    Serial number of failed request: 58
                    Current serial number in output stream: 58

                    2- Scrambling video output bug with VideoOverlay option turned on in xorg.conf and XVideo output was partially resolved. Now it only happens rarely in fullscreen, but in windowed video playback, it is still seen.

                      white screen with this test driver

                      Hello!

                      i have tried this driver 8.493 again without watermark (with the howto sed -i ...) and there is a white screen with compiz fusion on my ubuntu hardy 32 Bit.

                          Okay, so first things first:
                          1. I also couldnt start any 3d apps with 8.4 under wine, I always got errors like
                          libGL error: drmMap of framebuffer failed (Not enough memory)
                          libGL error: reverting to (slow) indirect rendering
                          This happens e.g. for warcraft 3, counterstrike, icy tower and also occurs for normal apps (though DX apps get it twice I think)
                          2.
                          i have tried this driver 8.493 again without watermark (with the howto sed -i ...) and there is a white screen with compiz fusion on my ubuntu hardy 32 Bit.
                          The white screen means that you dont have any 3d acceleration. It also occurs for me.
                          3. wtf... I just noticed my watermark is gone though I didnt upgrade the driver nor do anything else... this driver confuses me
                          4. Apart from that, I didnt yet notice any 2ed accel improvements, maybe because 3D is broken, too (using a V530)
                          5. One positive side though:

                          You see? For the first time (IIRC) they say something about real-world examples for whats not working yet. Now, thats an improvement in my eyes

                          Sorry for any typos, Im using a non-native keylayout at the moment

                          EDIT: Seems like I have to fizzle a bit more with this new driver, my kernel still loads the old module from 8.4....
                          EDIT2: Cant create a fedora8 package neither, same error as quintesse.

                            I have tried with FC 8 x86_64 with vanilla kernel 2.6.25.4 on Thinkpad R60 (ati x1400). I have tried with various option but, with kde3 and qt3, the fonts are corrupted (if I use antialiased font). With this "new" driver I have some "rendom hole" in all kde3 and qt3 apps.
                            This problem occurs since the first 8.x driver series. If I remove (only) fglrx module from the kernel the problem goes away!

                              Okaz I was able to create a Fedora package by Suspending the terminal with CTRL+S and then hacking the file fglrx-install.xxxxxx/packages/Fedora/ATI-fglrx.spec-tmpl:
                              1. line 287: insert the line /usr/X11R6/lib/libatiadlxx.so right after @X11_MODULE_DIR@/glesx.so
                              2. Remove line 323 (- Add compat-libstdc++ as a required dependency)
                              and resume the install with CTRL+Q.

                              You have to do the suspending at about
                              Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-.493..................... .................................................. ..................
                              .................
                              (i.e. about 1 thirdth of the dots completed )

                              EDIT: the rpm package doesnt seem to recognise that I have compat-libstdc++ installed, so one may also want to remove line 28 (Requires: compat-libstdc++)

                                Every month I get all excited thinking, "maybe this will be the one where I never ever have to reboot to Windows ever again just to watch video!!" They were so close with 8.3 but the jerkiness and weird semi-tearing gave me headaches (especially on a projector). So close, but so far... And 8.4 was just a slap in the face.

                                I'd also like it to run under 2.6.25 but I'll settle for 2.6.24 if it works.
                                If you set vsync on (quality in amdcccle) and use something like

                                mplayer -vo gl:yuv=4:lscale=1

                                you shouldn't see any tearing - maybe it depends on the card, but I don't on an X1600pro.

                                You can try different yuv/lscale options to suit your cards capabilities and scale type preference, see the manual.
