    Is this new or just a manifestation of the ageold composition bugs in fglrx? I managed to install 10.4 from ati.com after the upgrade process didn't manage it.

    Now desktop effects are enabled but...

    I don't know why, but -vo gl2:yuv=3 or just gl2 or gl results in horrible flicker for me, with compositing. It supposedly works for other people? How can this be?
