I have a motherboard with the SB600 (Biostar TA770 A2+), and similar problems with 64 bit Linux, & fglrx (on an AMD x1550). Works fine with radeonhd driver. Works fine with either driver using 32...
I did some looking and found that there's a bug regarding some 32-bit kernels (I think it started around 2.6.18) on Athlon X2 CPU's (not activating the second core). I'm compiling linux-126.96.36.199...

I've only done this late last night, but so...
Way ahead of you... I've been using another old 2D card with different drivers whenever I really need stability (most of the time). I was just hoping that I might be able to actually use the x1550...
I have the same problem. Have you found any resolution?
