    Given the timing of Evergreen accel development and Meerkat lockdown I doubt that the drivers are sufficiently up to date. You need later than 6.13.2 radeon or backports from the evergreen-accel branch (probably not there so you won't get any accel), Mesa 7.9 (which probably is there, although last I heard it was frozen a bit before the last Evergreen fixes went in) and I think you need 2.6.36 kernel vs 2.6.35 in Meerkat.

    In other words, you almost definitely need newer X and kernel drivers, and might need newer Mesa as well.

          10.10 isn't stable right now and mesa7.9 is the cutting edge version..

            I think the problem was that evergreen accel support came out too close to 10.10 lockdown to allow time for testing.

            BTW I don't think 10.10 actually has mesa 7.9 final, but picked up a slightly earlier drop from the mesa 7.9 branch a few weeks before 7.9 went final. If Meerkat were "Ubuntu 10.11" everything would have lined up a lot better

              right.. my problem is i think if i use xorg-edgers for the OS driver i think i broke my system for the catalyst 10.10..

              damn.

              ok cat 10.10 first then xorg-edgers LOL..

                With ppa-purge, also included in xorg-edgers ppa, you can revert to the original packages even if your xorg should be broken...
                ...at least worked well for me.

                  OTOH, xorg-edgers for Maverick should have everything needed for Evergreen support by now. Just add a kernel from the Kernel Mainline PPA.

                    Pretty sure xorg-edgers ppa doesn't include evergreen-accel branch last time I checked..otherwise yes it has new kernel and xorg.
