    Interesting - I also have a Radeon with Audigy2 combination

    There was another guy having odd interactions between radeon driver and his sound card. I wonder if there's something deeper going on than just resource conflicts...
    And then there's me:

    I have a Radeon 9550, and am running a 2.6.31.5 kernel with Fedora 11 and without KMS. And although I say "suddenly", it would be more accurate to say that things have suddenly become a lot worse. My "noise" problem used to only happen for a minute or so after start-up, and would then go away.

      Interesting, but not the same problem. I'd have a tough time guessing what your problem actually is, though. Try moving your Audigy to a different PCI slot, if it's an expansion card and not on-board.

        > If it doesn't load r600 it will default to swrast.

        could you post me your output of:
        glxinfo |grep -E 'OpenGL|server|client'
        ?

          Btw. if someone successfully tests games, drop it here: http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonProgram
          I tried it in the current Fedora 12 Beta and it .. started. There were some minor glitches (like wrong transparency) and the performance was so medium. My gfx card is a radeon 4830.

            Radeon X800?

            I'd like to know whether my Power Mac G5's Radeon x800 will be working under Fedora 12? It wasn't with 11.

              Is there an active bug ticket open for the problem ? If not, there's a good chance nobody is aware something needs to be done.

                Right... x800 should have been working since F...9?
                As bridgman above says, might be a bug that just doesn't happen to be known, i.e., it doesn't affect very many people. Be sure to report it, i.e. to the bug trackers of both Fedora as well as Xorg.

                Could also be something to do with the KMS stuff that was really in a "not sure if its coming or going" state in F11, might want to try to just force-disable KMS. I think the kernel parameter is "nomodeset" (or something like that).

                Might also help if you describe what it does (or does not) do in more details... "not working" doesn't give anybody much to go on.

                  Aren't Fedora pre-releases built with debugging code? That could slow it down..

                    KMS was missing big endian support when F11 was released. It should be working now, although it gets less testing than x86.

                      DanL: the kernel from F12 Beta still had debugging code built-in, the latest one from updates does not. Testing indicates a noticeable performance improvement for Radeon/KMS with the non-debug kernel.
