    Please do, although due to a holiday weekend I won't be able to look at it until Monday.

      Superior for gaming??

      Windows is superior for nothing guys!
      Well to be fair maybe for porno spyware and hacker thieves attacks are wonderful as well as viruses from antivirus companies...

      Linux systems are now becoming real popular and don't take negative opinions as you call them so bad, it is the feeling we all linux fans want from our systems to be as best as they can! Development is synonimus word to linux, and most of the linux gurus go mad cause they know that 98% of the problems caused to the linux distros are from proprietary software such as Catalyst griver is. Cause companies are only after profit and not progress for software and society generally.

      • Very easy to reset:

        rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
        touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf
        aticonfig --initial

        Simple, isnt it

          • sudo rm /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom

            Simple, isn't it?

            No, joking aside, you should only edit the *-custom file.

              The thing from another perspective: if Linux kernel had a stable API for proprietary modules and ATi had decided to bypass as much of the X.org stack as nVidia, there could be a lot less porting and proprietary driver development could focus on the real issues like stability instead of getting a rewrite on every single kernel version upgrade and X server upgrade. Btw, you probably know you're not being forced to use the proprietary drivers by anyone, right?

              • people have shown why a stable api for prop. modules is a very bad idea. Please google first before you continue on a track that would HURT linux A LOT So could you stop with the stupid stuff?

                or at least read this:

                think about it thoroughly and then come back.

                • Resolved Issue for "old" card

                  Hi ATi users, I have a notebook with a Radeon X1250(RS690M) running on OpenSUSE 11.1 32 bits and the unique fglrx driver that works with this version of OpenSUSE is 8.12, while older than 8.12 didn't built and the newers didn't started X, with just a black screen.
                  My problem is after logging out or CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACING it shows a strange green/black/blue screen and I must have to restart the PC. BUT it seems that this issue is resolved on the lastest(9.5) version of fglrx:

                  ...
                  Fixed: Some system may become unresponsive after starting and killing X-server
                  [SUSE 11.X x86] System no longer fail to respond when executing multiple server generations
                  ...


                  But UNFORTUNATLY, since 9.4, fglrx isn't compatible with my card anymore. I tried the OpenSUSE 11.0 and luckly it works with all versions from 8.11 to 9.3 I tested, but only 8.11 and 8.12 don't have this issue. I dont want to use an older version of OpenSUSE of migrate to another distro(Debian and Ubuntu worked well with the lastest compatible driver - 9.3).

                  If someone have had this issue and resolved himself, please "share this knowledge", I only found that it would be a conflict with vesafb, and just. Since I'm not a native speaker, sorry for some eventually mistakes. Thanks for reading my problem!

                    "we are talking about GPL released drivers here, if your code doesn't fall under this category, good luck, you are on your own here, you leech" Well, at least your page is honest with their reasoning. People who write non-GPL kernelspace drivers are in the kernel devs' opinion leaches who don't have to be cared of. Sounds like an awfully biased page.

                    • it is Greg's opinion. And Greg has all the right to think so. You might want to look that guy up. For him sharing and giving back is most important.

                      Others have written similar stuff.
                      example?

                      I hope Arjan van de Ven says you more than Greg Kroah Hartman (udev, pci, usb, driver-staging project and assorted other stuff)
