    ebuild with 2.6.26 patch

    Here is an ebuild file I made for Gentoo users who wish to use Kernel 2.6.26. I took it from the ebuild in the previous release, changed the download link and version number, and added the patch...

    A week *so far* ... :)

    Every month I get all excited thinking, "maybe this will be the one where I never ever have to reboot to Windows ever again just to watch video!!" They were so close with...

    Where is fglrx / catalyst 8.5?

    They seem to take longer and longer every month. Hopefully this will be a major quality improvement release like 8.3 and not a waste of a month like 8.4.

    compiz

    By the way I came across this note in the Gentoo compiz howto and I wanted to share it here because I don't think anyone had mentioned it.



    I found this to be indeed the cause of headaches with...

    Honeymoon is over

    After two days of use I still love this driver release. XVideo is good, and this is the first time I've gotten compiz to work, too. But in reality it is not without some minor (IMO) problems.

    As far as I'm concerned that's the understatement of the year. I don't want to speak too soon (I've been messing with it for about 30 minutes) but as far as I can tell, this one is a godsend!

    I'll be damned. It actually did do something... I lost 500fps. To wit:

    fozzie ~ # glxgears
    16998 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3399.512 FPS
    17024 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3404.605 FPS

    I'll be damned, I forgot all about amdcccle (I'd set the "refresh" option to fix the flicker, and it didn't do it, but I figured it eventually would.) Ok, now I can get 3300 fps on glxgears for...

    I wasn't kidding about that 60 FPS thing. Actually it is so consistently close to 60fps that I think it may have been throttled somehow. Why is my luck so sucky? I just double checked that libGL...
  12. hardlock

    I am one of these poor unfortunate X1400 users as well... in my laptop (*sigh*).

    I can confirm that before this change I got the hard lockup, and afterwards, no lock. (I should add for...

    diagnosis diagonal

    Muchas gracias, Bridgman. That is all I ever wanted to hear regarding fglrx. (Of course, how soon is soon? I am itching to "liberate" my Windows partition! :D )

    Hope springs eternal

    Actually (in response to my own skepticism) I just noticed that the known issues (as of 7.12 actually) finally mentions the blockiness and diagonal tearing in Xv video. So somebody noticed -- now I...

    ugh

    I haven't even installed it yet and I'm already disappointed. I guess that means I once again allowed my sunny optimism to get the better of me. At least they fixed the 1680x1050... right?

    Yes-- I just signed up for an account just to agree with the previous x1400 owner and you beat me to it. (I have a Thinkpad Z61m.)
