    Yes, but they get more out of the system if they run xfce4 as opposed to gnome. xfce4 is very userfriendly IMO. So it is more suited to do these tests with a recommended user environment

    Interesting, but why do you run Gnome in this test? Gnome or KDE is not suitable for old computers. Also netbooks like the Asus Eee PCs will benifit from using something simpler. So why not test with...

    You could flash the BIOS of the cards so that you get a better heat/fan speed permanent solution. Needs to be done in windows, and you need to be careful doing it. And it will apparently break the...

    No, this is not correct. Because I have tried before using x11 and it did not scale well the films. You got pixellisation (films looked like 1980s gfx) and tearing. I do not get this now. The Xvideo...

    Maybe not, but I have no problem with vlc or totem. Haven't checked mplayer as I don't use it... It has a too crappy interface.

    I agree. My experience with my old computer and x1650 AGP is that it only worked with ati open source driver.

  10. Compiz + X11 video playback = true !! (with Ubuntu Catalyst version)

    Hi

    Just wanted you to know that after I upgraded to Ubuntu 8.10 (which went painless) the fglrx driver Ubuntu ships with in 8.10 is really a progress. Using X11 playback with VLC, I can now watch...

    As you suggest the open source driver, does this mean fglrx isn't working with newer kernels/Xorgs that comes with 8.10?

    I mean Catalyst 8.10 will surly have xorg 7.4 support, right?

    Why not use fglrx? Is the kernel incompatible? If fglrx doesn't work i would think there was something wrong with the install unless there are 8.10 specific problems.

    Which drivers and how have you installed them. Other than that, why install 8.10? Get 8.04 and use it until 8.10 has been released and the first fixes have come. It works fine in 8.04 for me, with...

    To me it sounds like you have the same problems as others and that it is DRI which is the problem. xv works fine with compiz. opengl doesn't

    Well, I see many complain about tearing with nvidia drivers and poor 2D performance. But does really opengl apps work with compiz if you have a nvidia card?
