    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 7.11 Linux Driver

    For the past two months, the AMD release train has been running full speed ahead as they introduced their new driver code-base and last month had dropped in the AIGLX support. However, this month the AMD train has taken an intermediate stop as this closed-source driver embarks on its next journey. As always, we have all of the details for you on this month's ATI Catalyst 7.11 Linux display driver release.

    Which distro are you using?
    Any particular xorg.conf options?
    I'm really confused.
    I'm using OpenSUSE 10.3 x86_64 with fglrx 7.11 on an xpress 1100/200M. And using KDE4 RC1.
    I didn't do anything special with my X.Org configuration:

    But you want to also add the gl arb vertex program,since you have a Amd/Ati card

    so the last bit should be

    GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object;GL_ARB_vertex_program

    Should look like this in the registry

    Unfortunaly I already modified the registry :-( so that's not where my problem comes from.

    Thx anyway

    Registry Tweak for FPS Boost

    Open a terminal window, (konsole/terminal/x terminal etc..), type regedit and press enter. This will start the Wine equivalent of the windows registry editor. If you are familiar with using the registry editor under windows then this is pretty much the same.

    1. Find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\
    2. Highlight the wine folder in the left hand pane by left clicking on it. The icon should change to an open folder.
    3. Click right on the wine folder and select [NEW] then [KEY].
    4. Replace the text "New Key #1" with OpenGL (CaSe Sensitive).
    5. Right click in the right hand pane and select [NEW] then [String Value].
    6. Replace "New Value #1" with "DisabledExtensions" (CaSe sensitive).
    7. Then double click anywhere on the line, a dialog box will open.
    8. In the value field type "GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object" (without the quotes).

    Note: If you are unable to rename the newly created key "New Key #1" to "OpenGL" then expand the left hand pane of the regedit window using the vertical divider bar. You should now be able to change it. A known bug in Wine is causing this unwanted behavior.

    You should see a significant performance gain.
    But you want to also add the gl arb vertex program,since you have a Amd/Ati card

    so the last bit should be

    GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object;GL_ARB_vertex_program

    Hello,

    the WoW bug I encounter is the "No Models" one reported on the wine appdb page : http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...rsion&iId=9429

    SET M2UseShaders "0" did not help at all.

    quick question:
    is AIGLX and composite supposed to work with xorg-1.4?
    with catalyst-7.11..
    thanks
    It works for me, and quite fast aswell. (Xpress 1100/200M) Compiz Fusion won't work, however KWin4 with compositing works brilliantly.

    Nevertheless I did not check xorg.0.log to see if there are any warnings tho.

    I noticed I'm not the only one having the WoW bug with 8.42 and 7.11 drivers, but I guess this will be fixed with next release (hope so ^^)

    Anyway, I'll installed and configure compiz tonight to see if all the options you told me about are needed or not

    Is it a problem with xorg-1.4? With my xorg-1.3 it is working (slow, of course).
