Seriously, I didn't think it would need explanations.
It doesn't need anymore explanations. The explanations are all out there, in this forum, in other forums, in ATI's unofficial bugtracker. Something the fanboys apparently choose to ignore. I can understand why bridgman defends the company he works for. But this fanboy behavior from people with no ties to ATI, I've never quite understood that.
Seriously, I didn't think it would need explanations. I'll just say that having to put up with tearing while viewing videos with a `modern` video card is absolutely ridiculous.
The straw that broke the camel's back was the X11 crash which happened while I was typing in Pidgin with World of Warcraft in windowed mode in the background.
I'm assuming you're referring to tearing while using xv. I believe the normal response from AMD is to use the opengl renderer instead, and enable vsync. This is one issue I have with fglrx too though - screen splitting with xv.
As for the straw, that could just as easily be wine having issues. I'm not saying it couldn't be fglrx, just that more info would be required.
