    That driver ONLY works with Xserver 1.7. It would work with other systems then the full installer would be available.

          Anyone tested this driver with Unigine Tropics? I can see the menu and the fps counter but the rest of the screen is just black with this driver.

            Yes, I know, I'm using Ubuntu 10.4 b1, so it should work.

              @ arch64 hd4850 2.6.32.10:
              Muuuaahaha! =]
              I have just installed mplayer-vaapi-pulse (from aur) and theres no flickering at all (on fullscreen ofcourse), colours seems fine, subtitles are working (on smplayer)!
              On every video file ive tested/got - rmvb, mov, divx, xvid, h264!

              $ vainfo
              libva: libva version 0.31.0-sds5
              Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
              libva: va_getDriverName() returns 0
              libva: Trying to open /usr/lib/va/drivers/fglrx_drv_video.so
              libva: va_openDriver() returns 0
              vainfo: VA API version: 0.31
              vainfo: Driver version: Splitted-Desktop Systems XvBA backend for VA API - 0.6.9
              vainfo: Supported profile and entrypoints
              VAProfileMPEG2Simple : VAEntrypointIDCT
              VAProfileMPEG2Main : VAEntrypointIDCT
              VAProfileH264High : VAEntrypointVLD
              VAProfileVC1Advanced : VAEntrypointVLD

              mplayer -vo vaapi:gl -va vaapi file.avi
              or with smplayer you need to specify own video output as: vaapi:gl

              Now thats a surprise! Great!

              As timong wrote - its not working on hes 5650 mobility so it probably doesnt work with whole 5xxx line.

              Plus - when v-sync is enabled games are finally fast!

              Darn!
              Good job ATI! =P

              Ps. i have also installed: libva-sds and xvba-video (from aur)

                    Great, I have an HD 5750. So it looks like yet another bug specific to Evergreen .

                      Sorry AMD! We're really terribly sorry that we're not using the outdated, crap distros you're supporting officially.

                      Please continue to support specific distros only instead of Linux in general. It makes all our lives easier and generates more love towards you by every Linux user.
                      Well if it takes a little more work to update their main general Linux distro installer than it does to release a DEB package, that could be why. Things of course shouldn't be this way though, like if there was, oh, packaging/installation STANDARDS.
