    Well AIGLX is working for me now but it is having issues with FPS. I noticed some animations are smooth and others are not but it's all at random. When I minimize and then restore the firefox browser for example I see a bunch of black area redrawing and this did not happen with the 8.40x driver and XGL it was all smooth and no redrawing glitches.

    I'm running Gutsy with a X1600 Pro 512 PCIe

    Going back to the 8.40 driver and XGL unless I find a quick fix for these performance issues.

    • fglrx doesn't seem to be loading. I'm kind of a noob when it comes to linux, but i'm getting better by the day. I'm using Feisty, btw. Here's my xorg.conf file

      # /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)

      # values from the debconf database.

      I used the guide on ATI's wiki and when that didn't work, I resorted to an ATI guide on the ubuntu forums. Neither seemed to do anything.


      • Any ideas why I keep losing this symlink?


        Everytime I reboot, it's gone and I have to re-create the link. It's driving me insane.


        • The integrated restricted modules manager does not always work nicely, so maybe just remove it:

          sudo apt-get remove --purge $(dpkg -l|awk '/restricted/{print $2}')

          After that you could try my script:

          Until you used the lrm the script works too without deleting things.

              I've seen that on dual head systems only, and only when a OpenGL app terminates. It shouldn't be a problem, other than it is ugly.

              Things still work after that segfault though right?

                Hint: volatile

                That stuff is generated by the linux-kernel-restricted package... remove that package if you aren't using any restricted drivers. The symlink in the wiki is totally unnecessary if you run "depmod -ae" and add fglrx to /etc/defaults/linux-kernel-restricted-modules (as per the wiki).


                • Ubuntu Gutsy on a z61m with x1400 mobility. This release is an even more pathetic than the last one. TV out has stopped working(--query-monitor shows only lcd) and aiglx "performance" is a joke. Going back to the old version so I can at least watch movies on my tv....without xv of course


                  • [msparks@localhost ~]$ fglrxinfo

                    yeah, thats not good

                    radeon X1600

                    Also theres something weird happening:
                    I had to fiddle a while back to get dual screens working, now this machine has been depreciated to one monitor. However despite reverting to a single screen xorg.conf it insists on spanning two moniters.
                    In fact, the bugg3r is still working with no /etc/X11/xorg.conf

                    Fedora/F7, any ideas what I've installed that uses a config file other than /etc/X11/xorg.conf, Ive got it to a single screen by using a 'screen resolution' applet in gnome, but Im lost to understand how it is working at all without an xorg.conf. I knew it was going to end up being trouble, the moment dual monitors just decided to work.

                    None of these problems on the new nvidia card.....


                    • 2D seems to be working great and video playback is great too, but when I attempt to enable desktop effects everything disappears except the wallpaper. The odd thing is that I think that everything is there or least the panels because when I hover my mouse over what I think is the edge of one of the panels than the mouse change into the appropriate cursor.
                      The other oddity is that running glxgears produces a window with no animated gears. Running fglr_glxgears has the same blank windows but after a few seconds the entire desktop turns invisible too.

                      Oh yeah, I'm runnging 32bit Ubuntu 7.10 with an ATI X1950PRO AGP.
