    I have neither the time nor the inclination to acquire a Windows license and learn enough about Windows security to maintain a secure Windows system.

    WINE could be slow and crashy running WoW, but...

    I don't use sleep mode, I don't exit X, I don't switch terminals. But the random freezing has happened to me.

    I'm planning to try my ATI card again when catalyst 10.4 shows up, so I guess when...

    This seems a bit odd -- the nomsi thing was being recommended in 2007, but normally kernel tweakery from that far back is no longer relevant.

    Any concrete explanation of why this feature, which...

    So far as I know, I'm running a reasonably supported environment (Ubuntu 9.10, X server updated from repos but not otherwise "new"). I haven't tried 10.3, though, because I haven't heard from anyone...

    The big thing I'd care about is that, on the previous drivers, I would periodically get hangs -- system would be fine under the hood, but the video card would wedge completely, and 'aticonfig' would...

    I would call frequent hangs hard enough that you need to hit the reset button a bit off from "works rather well". Admittedly, it could in theory be a WINE bug, but that the same program under the...

    Having shipped some stuff running on Linux ... It's very hard to make something run on every possible Linux system. Generally, you pick a handful of targets and only support those. I'd guess that...

    Heh.

    I dunno, I have to say, I'm not a big fan of either ATI's or nVidia's drivers. Right now, I can't get either of them to work as well as I'd like, but I found a set of video options that let...

    It did seem that the weird corruption was strongly linked to flame effects.

    For now, I've gone back to the nVidia card -- running it with wine's directx driver, I played for about 8 hours with...

    I think I'm gonna give up.

    I've done a bunch more testing, and I'm having two major categories of bugs:

    1. Hard hangs, hard enough that I have to hit the physical reset button. Couple-few...

    In WoW, my GPU load pegs at about 30-40% unless the card wedges, in which case it wedges at 99% and nothing ever happens until I reboot the machine. :(

    Which suggests that my biggest problem is...

    It can come back from screenblank when wedged, but it doesn't unwedge. Very odd.

    When the display freezes... The GPU is at "99%" utilization, and just stays there, with low CPU usage from WoW. Nothing I can find at this point recovers it. "aticonfig...

    I should clarify: *almost* always. Every so often it hops up to 17% or 38% or so briefly. But it'll stay 0 for several consecutive runs of aticonfig while the screen is full of 3D rendering.

    Messing around, I've noticed that in most circumstances, the "GPU load" value is always 0%, even when the card's rendering full-screen 3D and running at its full clock speed. I'm not sure what that...

    So if I don't see "smp_processor preemptible", I don't have to rebuild my kernel, right? (I ask because I'm getting annoying hangs sporadically with the driver.)

    Thanks! Looks like --odgt is the right magic. Stable around 35 degrees C while just poking at firefoix. I'll leave it running every few seconds for a bit, log in, and see what it does.
