  • That was a quick response, thank you.
    Seems that I have to wait again for a little (I hope it doesn't take too long ) or try to fix the X crash without KMS.


    EDIT: Tried again without KMS and it seems to work now (Arch has nice info on the WIKI regarding how to do it).

    • I seem to get cursor corruption when "ForceLowPowerMode" is enabled on my rv635 (HD3650), print screen seems not to store/save this corruption.

      I'm on a Ubuntu 9.10 install with xorg-edgers ppa and latest mainline kernel 2.6.32-rc6.

      Edit: Option "ExaNoDownloadFromScreen" "TRUE" fixes it
