    The work around is sufficient but a real fix would be nice :P now if i could just get 8.8 to install right ill be happy. i just keep getting error: too many arguments to function 'smp_call_function' cant figure out what its missing inorder for it to work :P

I want to click the menu-stuff, because DVD has been around for a looong time now . Too bad MPlayer doesn't support menus, or I wouldn't need anything else ...
    yes but did you miss that part :P xine does have a native opengl playback module

    Default The Unforgiven!

    Well guys let me tell you my experience here...
    My system: Radeon HD 3450+HD 3200 Hybrid Crossfire,
    openSuSE 11 x64 KDE4,
    Xorg 7.3

    With this driver release I was expecting to be really happy but today I believe is not my day(If you consider also that our basketball team didn't entered the top4 teams at the olympiad for just 2 points after a thriller match...) and when I installed Catalyst 8.8 bad luck continued!

    I will start with the bad ones which some of them are introduced with this release! The unforgiven ones!

    1.
    No support for my (poor peoples) Hybrid Crossfire. Although I could establish a chain HD 3200 is not loaded and reports video bios signature error at Xorg.0.log.

    2.
    I cannot Logout or restart X!! Always system freeze! Big New Problem!

    3.
    XV video playback still flickers when Compiz or KDE's composite window manager is working whereas this issue is FIXED! for TexturedVideo ports at opensource xf86-video-ati driver!
    By the way as other folks already told with Xine when the video ends everything hangs...

    4.
    My beloved RACER rally excellent simulator game is not usable anymore!
    It starts normally (as always did) I choose car-track and when it comes to enter the racing track it segfaults!! Damn!

    5.
    Something more technical now, TexturedXRender Option is still broken for non-composite environments...

    6.
    What do we need adaptive antialiasing and OverDrive if games segfault?..
    And furthermore what do we need an only commercial game usable Crossfire for?

    And the good one(s)...

    1.
    AMDCCCLE is not segfaulting anymore when I used to enable Hybrid Crossfire at system BIOS. Now I have HCF always on(I mean the last 35 minutes).

    2.
    Open to suggestions...

    Downgrading to 8.7 seems a really wise decision
    Anyway I will test more OPENSOURCE 3D games to see any differences..

    Truly Yours

    Jim

    Works fine so far. On my HD3850 the only things that bug me are Wine and the lack of mipmaps with Compiz. On my 200M things seem to work like always, meaning no major problems.

    News:
    Sauerbraten, nexuiz, neverball, no gravity, gl 117, tuxracer, and rest of 3D games I have here are working same speeds, good overall.

    Only RACER has this problem perhaps it is some games related (cause Michael also spoke about some segfaults in GL games at the article)... I must investigate it further...

    I got an extra 100fps in fgl_glxgears, but urban terror framerate is basically the same. No problems though, so that's something

    Me too.
    Sauerbraten still crashes on certain fullscreen toggle events, but that isn't an immediate problem.

    Now hopefully we'll actually see it FIXED in the next release...
