    From what I have read, the official line from AMD/ATI is that they make most of their money supporting linux only on workstations and, as a result, aren't that interested in the consumer linux side...

    I don't blame your developers. I blame your management. A soldier can only be as good as his orders.

    My next computer will have integrated Intel graphics, which means it will have an Intel...

    I guess I should feel like an ass now. Unfortunately my sarcasm detector is tivoized and has a flaw that is causing a false negative. So I feel complimented instead.

    Damn.

    On a lighter note, I...

    In my last post I withdrew any direct association with medical technology and generalized the hypothetical to any CRITICAL SYSTEM. This includes everything from software used in nuclear power plants...

    Allow me to clarify.

    The definition of Tivoization is hardware that has only allows some set of signed/trusted software to run with/be installed on it.

    A critical system can exist.

    That...

    (Wikipedia)

    Is my scenario unlikely? Yes. Do things like this happen? Yes.

    I'll admit that a product being open source but locked down is better than it not being open source. That alone is a...

    Imagine a scenario where a piece of medical equipment runs on open source software, but it's GPLv2 and the hardware is Tivoized. Imagine that improved algorithms are discovered or new functionality,...

    Why do the KB numbers in the driver's release notes not directly link to the KB articles?

    Why is the card state (sometimes?) not reinitialized on reboot:

    I run Debian Sid 32 bit with an X800 pro.

    I had been holding new Xorg releases at bay for about 6 months because on 7.1 the driver would work fine, but with 7.2+ it would crash on startup.

  10. Two camps

    There are two camps I'm seeing.

    One camp takes the line that this driver is a work in progress and a step in the right direction. They are glad to see it regardless of its current functionality...

    In a few places in your script there seems to be some Diff stuck in rather than applied. Not sure if that's intentional, but thought I'd mention it just in case it isn't.

    You can find out via 'lspci' or else it's probably printed in your Xorg log somewhere as well (and other places too probably)...

    If I do


    lspci | grep ATI

    (Emphasis added)

    Does it blend? :D

    The main question I have is where will AMD go from here. I'm assuming that over the next few months they'll roll out AIGLX (next month), and continue to tweak...

    As far as I know Adobe Systems Inc. (Nasdaq ADBE) is a publicly traded company... yet they did a complete turnaround. Their relationship with the linux community was ghastly until they had a flash...

    Man, I spoke too soon. Turns out that this release is even worse than previous for me.

    The console switching bug now affects me; that's in direct opposition to the claim in the release notes that...

    My problem isn't fixed yet either, opera. I'm on debian sid 32bit.

    Every new release (ever since xserver-xorg-core 1.3) I

    install the new fglrx
    upgrade xserver-xorg-core
    reboot
    get the...
  17. Good News, Bad News

    The good news of this release is that the EDID hex dump I get in my xorg log when using 1.3 isn't just 00FF000...0 anymore which suggests they are making progress in fixing (what I believe to be)...

    Not sure about what's causing your problem. I'm guessing you're running non-1.3.0

    If you are running xserver 1.3.0, there's your problem.

    You didn't mention any error in the xorg log, so I'm...

    Debian's problem appears to be the same as Fedora7
