    @Pfanne

    The errors I describe are independent of the GPU used. The PointSprites are missing since driver release 8.41.7, that's nothing new, I mentioned that 13 month ago already. And when the only change from one driver to the next is a extremely bad new error then you would not get angry, right? I am responsible for lots of ATI users who use Kanotix and I create patches for ATI drivers on my own if possible. But if the base is so bad then this is completely lost time. If a huge company can not even fix issues introduced over a year ago they lost completely. But to make you happy: the card i used is X700 Pro (RV410) chipset - one of the chipsets with the worst open source driver experience!

      Seems to be fully ignored. Absolutely unusable!
      Check your permissions on /dev/dri/card0

        Good idea to check this:

        ls -l /dev/dri/card0
        crw-r----- 1 root root 226, 0 2008-09-18 18:01 /dev/dri/card0

            AGP?

            Anyone try this driver with the AGP 3850 card yet? I haven't had success since the 8.05 driver? I'm on Hardy Heron. If I get a chance I'll try it in the next day or 2.

              back to 8.8, fbo doesn't work anymore , but i can switch to the desktop from wine.
              those flickering lines ... I don't know , there still are some in ppracer, but theres less and they are not as big anymore. in wine they disappeared
              But before i upgraded to 8.9 I never had them.

                But, I'm not doing anything interesting.
                I too got a HD3870, and I can't switch users without getting a hard lock. Would you mind testing that?


                I wrote this about 20 minutes ago in bug report #112518 at Launchpad:
                I too got this bug and haven't found a solution yet.

                Dist: Kubuntu 8.04.1 Fully upgraded
                Graphics card: PowerColor (ATI) HD3870 SCS3
                Tested drivers: fglrx 8.3 through 8.9

                Symptoms: When switching user the screen goes black and the system is totally unresponsive, including the keyboard. Not even caps-lock trigges the caps-lock light. The only thing that works is the reset button and to hold the powerbutton until it shuts down. Shutdown or restart works without problem (I have fixed the problem with atieventsd, see bug 118605).
                If i use the vesa or radeonhd drivers everything is ok. But then I got no 3D acceleration, which I think would be nice...

                This bug is really annoying to me, as we are switching users a lot on this computer. It started when I bought this card. I got a ATI X600 before, and that didn't suffer from this bug at all.

                Anything else I could provide to help solving this bug, or at least get it triaged?

                  Distortion you mean, as in horizontal lines across the screen? That's nothing new. Even with vsync. on you can notice some level of distortion.
                  It also happens with video playback, but that I think is another separate issue.

                    M66GL results

                    OpenGL screensavers are still not exiting to a command line when you quit. (Run /usr/libexec/xscreensaver/rubik, and then press ESC.) So this presumably means that I still can't use OpenGL screensavers.

                    xine is still crashing the Xserver when it uses Textured Video and reaches the end of the movie. So I still can't use XVideo for video playback.

                    These are both long-standing issues.

                    I am also seeing this in my Xorg.0.log file:

                    I don't know what's going on there, but it doesn't look good.

                    Enabling RandR 1.2 support has reduced the FPS of glxgears from 3700 to ~2214.

                      First, very big thanks to the hard working developers.

                      Well, I have a PowerColor 3850 PCS for the very new AGP slot ^^

                      The driver works almost perfectly with it. I am very glad to see that.
                      Flash videos now working without lags, even with xv enabled. (see the following 'xorg.conf')

                      WINE works well, too (still hard work needed).

                      Well, there is a thing, i would be happy if they fix it soon.
                      I have an Samsung LE40A656 FULL HD LCD and I get this "black border" issue.
                      I think the developers are aware of the underscan issue.

                      The workaround with ...

                      Code:
                      sudo aticonfig --set-pcs-val=MCIL,DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan,0
                      ... works very good, but I'd like to adjust it easier, i.e. in the AMDCCCLE.
