after trying fixing and checking guides. choosed to test some linuxnative games like alienarena and quake3. what worked well but wow+wine dont. have tried to google and search from all kind of forums for help but nothing found yet. so anyone notice something strange or wrong in those? or got similiar problems with wine1.1.3, catalyst8.8, ati radeon x1600?
also noticed this old bug
tested to run quake3 with wine and it got also same corrupted screen problem. just wondering have i dont something wrong or that bug ain't fixed yet?
catalyst 8.8 + wine + radeon HD2600: same screen corruption
I see exactly the same problem, and have the same software, but a Radeon HD2600 Pro. I've just installed the catalyst 8.8 drivers, but also reported the same problem against catalyst 8.5 here: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11489.
An X screenshot shows a perfect image, yet what I see on the screen is a bunch of long-flat rectangles that are in the wrong position. Here's a photo:
Any tips would be most welcome.
i've tested that Virtual trick but not sure is 1442x900 correct one, well i quess i might give a little brake for wine, and use linux native games till they fix that. i think i used 8.5drivers few months back(used envy to install it) and than those worked but now envy uses 8.6 and it doesn work and cannot get 8.5 working while doing manual install. but these 8.8 work fine on all linux side, like gnome,compiz,quake3, much more performance and stability comparing to repositierie drivers.

Virtual trick works fine, if your resolution is 1440x900, then use 1441x900.
