  • Catalyst 8.6 + Cedega = graphics corruption

    It seems that the latest update from AMD has some problems running with Cedega... Took pictures with my cellphone to kind of demonstrate the problem if it helps figure why the corruption is happening.


    In most cases OpenGL support seems to be functional, with UT2k4, Warsow, Nexuiz, and Alien Arena all working perfectly...

    However, attempting to start up a game through Cedega on the 8.6 driver results in well...


    RadeonHD 3870



    Using Control Alt Backspace, then killing WINE, gives me something like these

    RadeonHD 3870


    Radeon 9600



    Anybody have any ideas what went screwy with the new driver?

    1 question, do you have compiz fusion disabled? if so try enabling it and looking again... this appears very similar to a bug i face with FGLRX 8.5 and 8.6 with it disabled.

      neither compiz-fusion nor beryl are installed.

        you could try installing that, although it'd be good to see the xorg config file to see if any changes are needed to that, because i don't have any of those issues... and as a quick note i don't see any of these problems... here's a quick spec of what i am using...

        Ubuntu 8.04
        FGLRX 8.6 ( 8.5 contained major bugs that made it unusable. )
        wine 1.0
        and of course my video card is a Radeon X1900GT.

          I have exactly the same problem with the new drivers. It happens with Cedega, Wine and crossover games. I don't have compiz-fusion enabled.


          *Adding x11-drivers/ati-drivers-8.501 to package.mask*

            [ Same ]

            Same problem,

            unable to use wine or cedega with 8.6 ati drivers :x

            Slackware 12.1 with wmaker, no compiz fusion ... tested with 2.6.24.7 and 2.6.25.7 recompiled kernels ...

            8.5 ati drivers are working (using the workaround to get rid of the black borders) and so are 8.4 drivers.

            That's "a bit" sad ... how comes such problems can happen on so many comps we got and ATI are still releasing their trash ??

            I wonder if I'll be able to use my 3870X2 one day ... so sad :X

            ...

              Here on a amd64 machine doesn't happen!

              fglrx 8.6, kernel tuxonice-sources-2.6.25-r4 (from gentoo tree)

              could be just x86 related?

                I get simmilar corruption with Wine on a X1600 XT on Gentoo x86.

                Since I couldn't find a bug report, I created one: http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1173

                    i stand corrected, did a few changes and ran a 2D app on wine and it happened to me... the fix is to restart your xorg server.

                      You mean each time you run a wine app???

                        yes, for wine, however i was also able to get this to appear using smplayer ( a front end to mplayer ) with the video output set to...
                        gl:yuv=3

                        and this time, the fix for this was to close the program.

                          Same here! i reproduced the bug playing a video with gmplayer on the external monitor of a dual head configuration!
                          Playing at full screen it came out. Closing it solved the problem!

                          edit: i think it's related to the new amdxmm... ysterday when i hacked in an ugly way the ebuild to install the new driver it didn't get loaded and the problem was not there! (if i'm not wrong! XD)

                            I could reprduce the 3rd picture when I start Nexuiz. To solve it I had to completely shutdown the internal monitor and keep only the external.
