For what it's worth. I logged back into Opensuse 10.3. I have the 8.41.7 driver installed. I was experiencing choppiness with my HD2600XT. I shutdown my computer put in my x800xl, logged into Opensuse 10.3, and it was smooth as a baby's behind with the 8.41.7 driver installed.
My HD2600XT works perfectly in XP and Vista though, so don't think it could be the card.
i have a laptop with a HD2600, using the 8.41.7 driver on ubuntu gutsy and i'm experiencing the same choppiness when moving or resizing windows
any info from my system i can give to help resolve this annoying problem?

are there any beta drivers available for download?
Not to my knowledge. It just sucks that this driver was designed specifically for the HD2000 series, yet it works better with my X800XL. Hopefully this will be fixed next release because I'm excited to use Opensuse 10.3 it looks really good so far, and a working video driver would allow me to put my Windows days behind me.
Make sure you follow the hard way. Print it out before because you'll have to go in init #3 mode (text based). Make sure libdrm is version 2.3, make sure you prepare the kernel following the steps. And it may not hurt to install Xorg 7.2. I did it and it works. 3D is enabled and no choppiness when draggin the windows.
