    Well I was using an old school dell square lcd that I was able to fix the tearing problems by changing the refresh from 60 to 75hz....your making me wish I went with asus....storma, what card are you using?

    Out of curiosity, what makes you think that it's a refresh rate problem? I'm at 60Hz and have no tearing. Asus vw222.

    This is not boding well for my desire to buy an ATI 5850 in the next month

    I recently bought a new monitor, I didn't realize it at the time, but his 23" acer monitor only lets you go up to 60hz refresh rate....let me tell you, that at the refresh rate, this driver is still utter garbage...screen tearing is evident on everything I do...I am extremely disappointed yet again, and have made a final decision to buy a competitors card, and then I will stomp on my 5770 until satisfied it won't cause anyone else the headaches it as caused me

    I posted in the other thread that it seems that the slackware package build part of the scripts is broken, as it spit out an error message when it hit slackware with --listpkg.

    Ubuntu karmic .deb packages built and installed fine though. Compiz appears to be working again although I admit to having not re-booted since turning it back on again.

    On a side note the genericized mobility radeon drivers installed fine although CCC still insists that I'm using 9.12(what I had previously installed) even though the driver package, driver numbers, and dates correspond to 10.3. I've read on the AMD forums that others have had similar problems though, as though CCC doesn't auto-detect catalyst version but relies on some registry entry to be updated with every new version... Also still didn't fix what is apparently a problem with "flame" type light source/maybe shadows, probably some corner case that was broken or poorly chosen as to how it was handled. I postulated that this may be related to the problem that the one guy was having with wine, but I plan to try the game(s) out under linux + wine to see if happens there(shared code, so it may) and if I can get more info if it happens under wine + linux but I need to free up a little more drive space temporarily before I can do so.

    Yes, it works. There are some artifacts (the chrome menu is strayed, for example), and the performance seems to be about the same.

    No real interest in using this mode then, but it's probably a good start towards convergence which should in the end improve performance.

    So far I can clearly see a performance gap between Windows and Linux drivers for playing HD video, for example.

    So far as I know, I'm running a reasonably supported environment (Ubuntu 9.10, X server updated from repos but not otherwise "new"). I haven't tried 10.3, though, because I haven't heard from anyone who had comparable lockups and saw them go away.

    I faced same problem at install than with 10.1.
    Well not exactly the same. I mention I use the packaging system included in the catalyst with --installandbuildpkg Ubuntu/karmic. The problem is not local to Ubuntu though but to Debian also.

    When installing with 9.12 installed, the driver compiled but failed to install.
    After getting everything about fglrx uninstalled it then failed to compile. I though about installing 10.2 then 10.3 and it worked!! There're cross dependencies through drivers ! In which mess are they working in ?

    It tried also publishing over their bugzilla, a Debian user had posted it first. But man, their bugzilla doesn't know any version after catalyst 9.7 !!!! o_O

    After all of this I can notice big improvements in my case (HD 4850 512M)
    - Compiz was unusable due to tremedous lags in 10.2, it's fixed.
    - Video using gl2 extension get fixed lumina, damn I finally can enjoy true black without playing with loosy constrast controls ^-^
    - Tomorrow I'll see if the "no ati card detected so let's crash" bug is fixed...
