    It seems my half-life 2 issue was actually a problem with Wine/Alsa/PulseAudio, not Catalyst 8.9, sorry for the false alarm!

    It seems that half-life 2 via wine works the first time I run it. But subsequent runs result in a black screen after the Valve logo. This persists until reboot.

    My screen corruption problems appear to be solved. It affected mostly wine apps, but there were some native apps that exhibited the problem as well. For instance, the loading screen of nexuiz. I...

    I don't know the reason, I just know that using the VESA driver, my heatsink gets really hot (I have an aftermarket, Accelero S1 Rev.2 on it) and with fglrx is stays only slightly warm. Also, this...

    My card gets _really_ hot using the vesa driver. I think it uses a lot less power with fglrx, due to PowerPlay or something. So that might be a big factor to consider.

    You most likely have MTRR problems. I have a P45 chipset and I experienced the same thing with 4GB+ of RAM. You can remove 1 stick of RAM to verify that this is the issue. It is the BIOS fault, not...

    bridgman, When I use disable memory re-mapping in my BIOS, my system becomes unusably slow. I don't even have the patience to wait through a bootup, to see if fglrx works with it disabled.

    You're /proc/mtrr is messed up. I have a P45 (Asus P5Q Pro) motherboard as well and I also experience this problem. You can try taking out 1 stick of RAM to verify this. The following script is what...

    Do you have 1MB memory hole enabled in BIOS? It would say something like "Memory hole, 15MB-16MB". Disable it if you find the option (I have it in my Asus BIOS) and paste your new /proc/mtrr.

    Can you paste the following things:

    1) The output of 'cat /proc/mtrr'
    2) Amount of GPU RAM
    3) Amount of System RAM

    Performance should be the same, you are just fixing bad mtrr entries.

    I was able to regain the use of all 8GB of memory by building my MTRR tables by hand. What a pain, but it wasn't the fault of ATI's driver, it is my BIOS.

    I have the same problem when I have at least 4GB of RAM in my system. It is a BIOS issue or a Linux kernel issue, fglrx is only one of many things affected. I also had corruption reading CDs or my...
