    What DM are you using as login manager? I had the same problem with KDM on Kubuntu and someone in this forum (even in this thread) suggested me to check /etc/ati/authatieventsd.sh - there was bad path to Xorg/KDM authority files. Since I've changed it to proper path the problem with hangs on logoff disappeared.

    But when I run Totem it gets segfaulted.

    sh: jackd: not found
    The program 'totem' received an X Window System error.
    This probably reflects a bug in the program.
    The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
    (Details: serial 78 error_code 2 request_code 140 minor_code 19)
    (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
    that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
    To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
    option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
    backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

    Do you have any idea what this is happening?

    Thanks for reading.
    The same here, Hobbes...

    According to lspci, my card is an "ATI Technologies Inc RV516", a Radeon X1550 actually. I'm currently running Debian Lenny, linux 2.6.24-1-amd64, with Xorg 7.2-5, and a LCD monitor @ 1440x900.

    With fglrx version 8.47.1, I get "BadValue" errors and X restarts when trying to use xvideo output in VLC and MPlayer, with and without composite enabled. The same goes for gstreamer-properties when testing video output. Also GDM hangs at logout and it doesn't stops when shutting down the service by hand.

    I tried reinstalling, deinstalling, purging, cleaning and reconfiguring fglrx packages, with no luck so far. I should try setting another screen resolution, but for now I went back to 8.45.5 and it's blocky xv... Guess I'll have to wait 'til another version.

    Hey guys what happens if you add under Device Section those 2:
    Option "Textured2D" "on"
    Option "TexturedXrender" "on"
    And also enable RENDER Extension at Extensions Section?

    Also when you do these changes type this as root in a terminal:
    aticonfig --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf --tls=1
    in order amdpcsdb to record your changes. This also adds UseFastTLS option and maybe it can help too

    Thanks djdoo!!

    The RENDER extension was enabled as it's built-in, but I've set Textured2D, TexturedXrender and UseFastTLS as you said, and guess what? Now I can watch videos using XVideo output! That's incredible!

    Anyway, I will try different configurations in order to isolate the problem to one of those settings.

    NO problem my friend
    But remember at any setting by hand use the aticonfig trick with tls for amdpcsdb to record your changes

    those options helped here, but video is still choppy (no longer flashy) when compiz is running, so I think something else is still needed.

    Identifier "aticonfig-Device[0]"
    Driver "fglrx"
    Option "VideoOverlay" "off"
    Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
    Option "TexturedVideo" "on"
    Option "TexturedVideoSync" "on"
    Option "Textured2D" "on"
    Option "TexturedXrender" "on"
    Option "UseFastTLS" "1"

    With compiz off, the videos are as good as Vista on my X1400 mobility.

    regards

    Video quality is the same under Compiz too but only for fullscreen mode and you have to enable the Video Playback Plugin(if you use mplayer it also needs a patch, Xine works straight away) and also go to:
    CCSM->General Options-> and check the box that sais Unredirect Fullscreen Windows
    The windowed flickering problems and OpenGL flickering generally will be solved only when DRI2 is ready to be used as the standard protocol and fglrx be ported to DRI2 infrastructure.
    Till then we can view our videos fullscreen

    Could you please explain exactly what this is? I have seen the /etc/ati directory with its mysterious contents, but no explanations anywhere about what they are.

    Also, with the latest driver I finally have Xvideo working on my X1250 embedded graphics, at least with mplayer. But tvtime still does this:


    *** tvtime requires hardware YUY2 overlay support from your video card
    *** driver.
    (etc.)


    If someone has this tvtime working on X1250 please post either the aticonfig command that got you there or the xorg.conf file.

    Thanks.
