    I forgot to add that I had the same problem as you.

    I have a 5750 that is working fine under 10.04 x86_64.

    I had to remove the ubuntu distributed driver, run fglrx_uninstall and then rm -rf /etc/ati before running the downloaded 10.04 installer. I used the installer option rather than creating debs or whatever too.

    I also need to set "DefaultDepth 24" manually in the xorg.conf after running the installer.

    I can pm you my xorg.conf if that helps.

    Many has been said here about unofficial Catalyst releases, Ubuntu Lucid Alpha, Beta, Etcetera

    Well, now Ubuntu 10.04 is out, so is Catalyst 10.4. But despite their version number correlation, they DO NO work together for me. And apparently I am not the only one

    Ubuntu's proprietary hardware driver tool doesn't do the job: It downloads the driver, but fails to install it.

    Using the shell script from AMD works as to installing the driver, but now I ended up with a completely broken X Server. (No black screen though, but extreeeeem long boot time, then a x-server that draws windows in slo-mo and not a trace of composition.)

    Now since the Phoronix guys here benchmark Ubuntu Lucid with Raden HD 5770 all the time:
    Please guys: How the hell did you get it working?

    My situation is a bit more complex: I have two monitors (both DVI) and a projector (HDMI). I don't need the projector when using the monitors and vice versa, so two outputs at a time would be plenty.

    Unfortunately fglrx seems to permanently disable DFP4 (dvi#2) when it detects a cable in DFP2 (hdmi), no matter if there's actually a picture on DFP2 or not. To use the second monitor, I have to unplug the projector before the system boots.
    just as a follow-up, as of fglrx 10.3 (maybe 10.2, didn't test), this setup works perfectly.

    Code:
    xrandr --output DFP4 --off
    xrandr --output DFP2 --mode 1280x720 --right-of DFP3
    Code:
    xrandr --output DFP2 --off
    xrandr --output DFP4 --auto --right-of DFP3
    works as expected.

    It requires two separate xrandr calls, won't work when everything's put on one line.

    yay \o/

    (and just for bashing: that means it now works way better than on windows. Stupid thing likes to forget previous configurations and everything. Doesn't seem to allow simple changes with command line tools, either.
    and just for bashing #2, I now have three displays permanently connected. Take that, nvidia. )

    I guess I just grouped them all into '3D graphics' but probably shouldn't have. I was curious if there would be any issues if trying various programs from video editors to raster graphics editors to vector graphics software to CAD software. I didn't say they required 3D acceleration.

    I was also curious what my experience would be with Wine if I used it with Photoshop and Xara,

    I'm asking these questions since I'm considering a Powercolor HD 5770 PCS+ and comparing to a used GTX 260 (almost same price).

    Okay. I accept your explanation.

    How is video playback, video hardware acceleration and video editing with this card and most recent fglrx drivers?

    I was also curious what my experience would be with Wine if I used it with Photoshop and Xara, for e.g. I don't think such a powerful card is needed but I'm wondering about how it applies to the hardware, fglrx drivers and 3D experience with ATI/Linux.
