Is there any word on the screen corruption issues on r600/hd4770 on fedora 12? I was told that nodownloadfromscreen should be set to avoid it - if so, shouldn't the driver just enable that by default? It seems wrong to push a known broken driver to users in a stable distro release that requires manually setting an option that 99% of those users will never find out about. They'll (rightfully I
o) just assume Linux is crappy amd abandon it forever if the out of the box experience is that buggy... It would be better to just disable the r600 driver entirely if it can't automatically enable the option to fix the corruption.
