      I wonder what the ATI guys will think if they see the jokes here?
      Or what are they thinking if they already saw them

        Oh, trust me, Matthew Tippett and Co ARE reading this and the other forum threads on the subject of ATI's endeavors. The bad jokes HAVE to sting, but I'm of the opinion that he's tied up with a piggin' strand here on the drivers issue.

          Where would I send the output of atigetsysteminfo? Last night's attempt at using 8.39.4 calls for waaay more data than I could post here or paste into ATI's Linux feedback site.

          BTW, I have no idea what "Textured Video" is exactly, but I think it is what crashed my X server when I had finished playing a Quicktime movie file using "xine -V Xv".

            You could email the data to michael [at] phoronix.com, and I can forward it on.

              but then again, it could reveal lots of embarrassing development mistakes

                      8.40 "Optimized release notes, slimmed to only two sections, 'known issues' and 'legal' "-edition


                      or perhaps

                      8.40 "when it divides by zero, it gets nullity now. Realized it was bogus, doesn't solve a thing, wasted time"-edition

                      or

                      8.40 "if you think you can do it better, here's the source"-edition

                        If this ever happens, I think would be great...

                          I think I would probably see Lucifer looking for ice-skates before that one happens...
