    Do you think it's normal: I have to do log off or reboot to switch to the next screen?

    PS: I can't edit my post...

    My question smell bad?

    I put the corruption of my Xorg.conf by amdcccle:Section "Monitor"
    Code:
    	Identifier   "0-DFP4"
    	Option	    "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
    	Option	    "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
    	Option	    "DPMS" "true"
    	Option	    "Disable" "true"
    	Option	    "?]„	?i)?i)" "true"
    	Option	    "Position" "0 0"
    	Option	    "Rotate" "normal"
    	Option	    "?ql
    ??l??l" "true"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier   "0-DFP1"
    	Option	    "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
    	Option	    "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
    	Option	    "DPMS" "true"
    	Option	    "????L??L" "true"
    	Option	    "Position" "0 0"
    	Option	    "Rotate" "normal"
    	Option	    "Disable" "false"
    	Option	    "€y?	`O|?Q|" "true"
    	Option	    "?{?	p??€??" "true"
    	Option	    "€?	`?????" "true"
    	Option	    "?ƒ?" "true"
    	Option	    "PreferredMode" "1280x1024"
    	Option	    "TargetRefresh" "60"
    EndSection
    And just 30 minutes to go back to my screen after videoprojection. I'm a little bit angry because of that....

    Um, practically anyone who has a card in the Fedora Forums including admins.
    one poster here claimed - and got shot down.

    And Fedora is broken by design. Use ubuntu, opensuse (or gentoo) and you will be fine.

    The driver doesn't work on Fedora. Fglrx only "officially" supports a few distros, and the driver works fine in those.

    then let me tell you that my 5770 works quite well on 10.1.

    AFAIK there have been some packaging changes in 10.1, looks like whoever made the fedora packages didn't notice and messed up.

    This new driver doesn't work on Radeon HD 5xxx cards? What if you try a hotfix or downgrade to ver. 9.12?

    Is there any estimates when 10.1 will work?

    I dual boot Debian, Ubuntu and Fedora. I would be satisfied with a fix/solution for Ubuntu and/or Fedora.

    What about Radeon HD 4xxx cards? I am considering one of these and I could boot up Windows for games if need be but I was wondering if there is a plan or schedule for having these cards optimized with the newest drivers and most recent distros (e.g. bleeding edge Fedora 12 and Ubuntu 10.04).

    I am looking at cards from ATI HD 4670 to HD 5770 (limit).

    Sorry to interrupt the detailed and very technical discussion here on the specific cards. I hope my post is okay.

    hi,
    sorry about my poor english.

    I run 10.1 release on ubuntu 9.10 with an HD4670 graphic card.
    This release is not really stable on my desktop but this is the only one with less tearing.

    Why can't I switch normally to my videoprojector and come back to my display with amdcccle? It results on corruption of my xorg.conf (particulary when I come back to my screen), and has to do reboot to complete.

    This is not the only one, but the most boring.
    Can you give me some help?

    it is so much easier with gentoo
    just pmask xorg-server 1.7 and everything else falls into places :P
