  1. So what do you suggest?

    You sound like you just took a statistics class ;) Through my work I often witness how people who are trained in statistics accusing those who acquire data to misuse statistics. While it's good to...

  3. Another angry laptop user

    Hey, what's that? I bought a T60 Thinkpad two years ago with X1300 mobility. But until last fall I was not able to use dynamic display switching in a comfortable manner! Only with the introduction of...

    It's the RC, not mainline

    I found it confusing that the article states that it's the mainline kernel which is affected - in fact, it's the RC, which is not a production version. Moreover, it does not impact all major Linux...

    Failure is reproducable

    OK, i reproduced the desktop corruption. Starting powerpoint via Crossover Office (WINE) makes the desktio unusable, restarting the X server fixes the corruption. But I can't finish my presentation...

    dual-head works again - now please give us XRANDR!

    On my T60 with Mobility X1300 dual-head now works again, also when driving two screens from the docking station. Cool! I have an asymmetric screen setup, screen 1 with 1680x1050 and screen 2 with...

    Do you use aticonfig for that?

    The funny thing is that with 8.4, xrandr -q tells me that the resolution is 3360x1050, but the windowmanager (kwin) correctly uses only the available area on the...

    big desktop screwed

    I used 8.4 in big desktop mode, with two screens. One is 1680x1050, the other 1280x1024. This worked almost perfectly. But after updating to 8.5 the 1280-screen only shows a distorted image. It seems...

    Oh how I would have loved to get a completely Intel-based machine, but back then Lenovo wouldn't sell the T60 with more than 1024x768 and Intel graphics. Now I have 1400x1050, an x1300 inside, and my...

    What about xrandr?

    Has anyone tried dynamic dual-head setup with the new driver using Xrandr?

    The aticonfig solution with pairmode and so on doesn't work for me. At least I can't get it set up in a way that I can...

    remove, reboot, reinstall

    Try the three R! ;)

    I had a similar problem, and it went away after uninstalling the 8.45 rpm, installing the 8.40 rpm, uninstalling that and installing 8.45 again, with reboots inserted in this...

    Problem disappeared

    Thanks for the reply! I just updated my post above; after rebooting twice 2D speed is back to normal. Which is very good! :D

    The best problems are those which go away by themselves :)

    Works on Mobility X1300

    3D works for me with 1680x1050 on my Laptop (T60, Mobility X1300, OpenSUSE 10.3). That's good!

    But on the downside, apparently 2D is FAR slower than with 8.40, redrawing windows after moving them...
