    So... you're all for freedom, until someone wants to do something with THEIR freedom that YOU don't approve of. Nice.
  2. misnomer

    "Widescreen Bug" is a misnomer. The driver has a problem with certain non-vesa resolutions (1680x1050, 1440x1050, etc.)

    All kidding aside, just because you have the source code doesn't mean you know how it all works. I've seen plenty of projects that were poorly documented and some poor devs had to come in and try to...

    Yeah, but what if they don't know, either?:rolleyes:

    I already did. I use my laptop for work and play and the driver issues were a dealbreaker for me. Linux performed better for work (better compile times and less I/O bottlenecking), but not enough...

    Not many of us do...



    A few people have done this and it appears that the culprit is a leak in the implementation of glclear(), which would make sense, in terms of the leak rate being directly...
  8. Interesting Observations

    A few interesting (to me, at least) commonalities based on my own informal testing and the posts of other members:

    The memory leak seems to be directly proportional to frame rates; running...
  9. Why, oh why...

    I finally got this card running stably without desktop artifacts, only to discover that, while 3D framerates are much improved, this driver leaks memory like a firehose (glx_gears using 500 MB after...
  10. Hanve you tried...

    Have you tried any of the closed-source games (quake3/4, doom3)? These ran fine for me, bu I have had some issues trying to run OS 3d games (chromium locks up my xserver hard). What was the output...
  11. Thanks!

    Many thanks to givemesugar for posting the example xorg.conf. I had the corruption in the lower corner and around the mouse cursor and had about given up on this driver (actually, I had already...
  12. Screen Corruption :-(

    I thought the screen corruption in the corner / around cursor issue was livable, but today it just kept coming back and coming back (I had IntelliJ open with two projects, KDESVN, Konquerer and...

    Nope. Running OpenSUSE 10.2 here (kernel 2.6.18.8-0.7 on Dell E1505 / X1400). I have the screen corruption issue in 2D (around mouse cursor and in LR corner), the segmentation faults in dual-head...

    I tried setting XAANoOffscreenPixmaps and I thought it was working - no corruption for 8 - 10 hours, then I came back to my system after the screen locked, and it was there, big as life. Oh, well. ...
