    It works perfectly fine here.

    Why use xinerama at all when you have a single GPU? xrandr works great and, prior to that, AMD's "Big Desktop" mode worked as well. There are a number of...

    Panix, if you can't contribute to the discussion, go the fuck away.

    Kamelot, the best way on Ubuntu is to simply enable the driver via the driver manager. Did you try that?

    You still have two screen sections. Remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf and rerun 'aticonfig --initial' because that's definitely not an initial xorg.conf file.

    My suggestion would have been to use KMS if you weren't already :-) I doubt switching to UMS will help.

    Are you using KMS? What you describe sounds like a lack of accelerated blit in the drivers.

    Right, because the same package contains both the 64-bit and 32-bit drivers. However, many distributions do package the drivers already.

    OK, so I'm guessing everyone would agree that there is a kernel bug here. This may now be out of my league. You could try building newer kernel from git to see if the problem persists. Other than...

    The version mismatch probably means that the version of xf86-video-ati you are using (are you still using the 13.1 version?) wasn't built with KMS support.

    I'm happy to say that I'm wrong. I don't know when this was resolved, but doom3 and ut2004 both ran just fine here with r300g + s3tc. Now I can only hope the same happens for r600 (classic or...

    Honestly, I'm not aware of a bug report specific to s3tc on r300g. I mostly use FreeBSD, but next time I'm in Fedora, I'll give it a shot again and see if anything has improved.

    I've only tried a few apps that use S3TC on r300... Neverwinter Nights, doom3, ut2004, and quake4 come to mind. Of those four, S3TC only works properly with NWN (last I tried).
