    I believed that my pc was overheating by free drivers, but the other day it clean with compressed air and my pc has a very low temperature,

    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1: +67.0C

    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1: +66.1C (high = +70.0C)
    (crit = +115.5C, hyst = +110.5C)


    After I had 90 degrees, but now my pc is fresh , Thank you amd for drop my card, Now I use a decent driver. No tearing on opengl output for videos, good opengl perfomance, good desktop effects performance, good native games performance, I play every day amnesia with this drivers and I don't have any problem .

    My pc is a hp pavilion dv6 2120 with radeon 4650

    Default xserver 1.13

    Got some question to non-ubuntu (maybe non-debian) users:
    are you able to use this driver with xorg-server 1.13?

    As an Arch user i'm not able to start X, still getting Xorg.log' error:
    Code:
    (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so: undefined symbol: noXFree86DRIExtension
    I can see that also Mageia user is getting same error.


    I did some quick research but don't see anything special in ubuntu's fglrx...
    Although ubuntu's xserver 1.13 is patched with "tons" of patches.
    Question: is it possible that 12.9 beta supports only ubuntu's xserver?

    indeed! darn it, i thought they are the same! What a disinformation! It's like third 9.00 within a month...

    Anyhow still no success in starting Xserver 1.13 even with ubuntu's driver (still on Arch Linux) - got no error in Xorg.log, just black screen. Xorg.log said it's far farther, last lines:
    Code:
    [     4.415] (**) fglrx(0): AMD 2D Acceleration Architecture enabled
    [     4.415] (--) fglrx(0): Chipset: "AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series " (Chipset = 0x6819)
    [     4.415] (--) fglrx(0): (PciSubVendor = 0x174b, PciSubDevice = 0xe218)
    [     4.415] (==) fglrx(0): board vendor info: third party graphics adapter - NOT original AMD
    [     4.415] (--) fglrx(0): Linear framebuffer (phys) at 0xd0000000
    [     4.415] (--) fglrx(0): MMIO registers at 0xfe8c0000
    [     4.415] (--) fglrx(0): I/O port at 0x0000c000
    [     4.415] (==) fglrx(0): ROM-BIOS at 0x000c0000
    [     4.416] (II) fglrx(0): AC Adapter is used
    So no success atm, but closer, works fine with xserv 1.12 though so it's built fine

    Anyway thanks Kano!

    Finally Ubuntu Quantal put them fglrx drivers version. I just installed them, they work but it a little bit too slow, they need optimization.

    #apt-cache show fglrx
    Package: fglrx
    Priority: extra
    Section: restricted/misc
    Installed-Size: 236703
    Maintainer: Ubuntu Core Developers <ubuntu-devel-discuss@lists.ubuntu.com>
    Architecture: amd64
    Source: fglrx-installer
    Version: 2:9.000-0ubuntu1

    Ubuntu Quantal:
    9.00.11-120920a-147436C-ATI
    [20592.361784] [fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 9.0.2 [Sep 20 2012] with 1 minors

    12.9 Beta (same as Embedded Driver with different control file):
    9.00-120815a-147115C-ATI
    [ 5.229425] [fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 9.0.2 [Aug 15 2012] with 1 minors

    So there is one month difference between quantal and the other one. Meaning Quantal versionis one month newer.

    What do you mean slow?
    Is it something you can quatify with a benchmark?
    Are they slow only with xorg 1.13 or even with 1.12?
    Other people reported to be faster than previous releases.
    What DE are you running?

    I'm interested as I have a Radeon too, and I'm waiting good drivers to install Quantal

    Well they are not slower for me with Ubuntu Quantal. I noticed some bugs with Google Chrome hardware acceleration but that's it.

    A whine about wine in regards to fglrx.
