    Open up a new thread, this really doesn't belong in here.

    Don't get me wrong here, if there is no possibility, that Michael can even say it will come out at the end of the month (which isn't really precise informationen ) or sth. similar, then he can say of course, that he is not allowed to state that and I am fine with that.

    Anyway, I hope this one will be better. 8.42.3 wasn't the best release. Of course it had AIGLX and stuff, but there were some things, that I think could be prevented if you double check it before you release (I hope they do that ).

      Yes it was very incomplete... you can not even run all OpenGL apps with it. It is mainly for games and a very little bit for AIGLX.

          Hmph... As I suspected. You'll find the same story with the Vista/XP version of the driver.

            Hopefully they'll fix some of the bugs I've got, heres my complete list of bugs/problems:

            3D
            - Stuttering in 3d, its smooth sometimes, but it seems like when particles or something, I can't quite figure out what it is thats causing it, but it even happens in Hexen II (A Quake 1 engine game). All my games run smooth even at 6x anti aliasing, but when I reach a stutter area, well, its slow no matter what I do.

            2D - I have a few 2d issues, one, when browsing with firefox, sometimes my mouse cursor shows corruption around it. Strange, and annoying. Also 2d performance is a little lacking still.

            Video - Xv Video playback seems slow. Opengl playback is fine, but I would like to see Xv working the way it should, as would a ton of us.

            AIGLX/Compiz
            - Compiz Fusion works, however, some windows do not show their contents, they are just blank. And I can't move icons on my desktop. Its like the desktop itself is frozen until I turn off Compiz. And it is a little slow at times.

            If they can fix all those issues in 8.43 I'll be in disbelief, if they can fix at least half of them, I'll be happy. If they fix none of them, I will send Phoronix a new video that they can put on their site, titled "What happens if you have a hammer in your left hand and a ATI card in your right?"

              True, but this person hasn't replied in the topic that was opened for it, so all input we X1950/X16nn AGP! users like to get anything really.

              Said that, Mine works, i get 3d and everything, just horrible slow (no interrupt assigned or some such).

                  any hint????

                  can i run aiglx in a fast and stable way?

                  I'm using an x200m in my lappy, yeah i know. it is not as fast, but in 8.40 XGL was faster than 8.42 with AIXGL

                    somewhere in ati. where else?

                    i can't wait for more specs from ati, and i can finally forget about that damned driver. maybe i'll also learn to code in C properly, so i'll be of some help the radeonhd devs.

                      Yes coding C is one good idea, i`m just started to studying/learning c-language, but in near future is might be useful to helping to make good opensource ati driver or something else but still good think if me or somebody not hired people can also be part of making good drivers .

                      Ps. sorry my little rusty english.
