    Hi Oibaf,

    I have a Dell 600 with Radeon 9000 ( R200 ).
    Since follwing the manipulations proposed. i changed from almost 900 glxgears to:
    980 frames in 5.1 seconds = 191.703 FPS
    960 frames in 5.1 seconds = 187.907 FPS

    A quicktest of glxinfo:
    glxinfo | grep 'direct rendering'
    direct rendering: No (If you want to find out why, try setting LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose)

    I see in the logs that the R200 microcode is loaded.
    My Xorg session looks like this:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Driver "ati"
    #Option "AccelMethod" "EXA"
    Option "AccelMethod" "XAA"
    EndSection

    There is two accelmethods just because i tried both to see if something changes but no results.

    Do you have any idea?
    Ps: fglrx is not installed.

      As the above message suggested try running:
      Code:
      LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose glxinfo
      to see why it's not being enabled. Also check your Xorg log as that may give you further insight.

          Just update your packages. This was discussed a couple of posts ago in this very thread.

              But do you have the latest xserver packages? (xorg-server - 2:1.4.99.905+git20080704+server-1.5-branch.c30f36c8-0ubuntu0tormod3)

                  Then we are a little off-topic for this thread. The packages are made and tested for Hardy. In Intrepid, you'll need 2:1.4.99.905-0ubuntu2

                    I/2 all...

                    First post in phoronix, although i'm a regular reader

                    I have a evil xpress 1100 (200m), chipset rs485 igp, i installed the latest xorg and ati drivers using the howto from first post. Everything (compiz, 3d, xv) is working as advertised, BUT i have a bug, really weird one.

                    When i resume from ram my system comes back BUT entirely garbled, like an old tv with bad signal. It still works, but is unusable. Swtching consoles doesnt work, reiniciating x doesnt work, only a clean reboot does work (hibernate works fine (suspend to disk)).

                    I talked with dave airlie and alex deucher about this bug (bug 16537 in bugs.freedesktop.org). Till now, no patch killed the little rat.

                    Does any kind soul with a 200m is having the same resume to ram (suspend) problem - completely garbled screen after the wakeup?

                    If so, could you please reply to this post? We need more users with this model to test the resume to ram in order to find what is the stupid register that's not working.

                    Any help is very welcome

                    Thanks in advance.

                      Maybe you should post in a separate thread, because this bug is not limited to Ubuntu 8.04 or my packages.
