    Has anyone be able to activate composite on a FireGL with 7.12 drivers ? I guess it will not be fixed on 8.01, but opengl overlay is forced to on when a firegl board is detected, what prevents composite to be used.

    Any idea if it is a knwon bug/fix ?

    Cool, the certified 7.12 scrambled the screen on a fresh install of ubuntu.
    I could not read a single line once the desktop is loaded. (on gdm it's fine, and I don't think to have compiz active )

    I ask because last year firegls were really supported in many few releases.

    I never use sleep or hibernate on my laptop, but I might begin using it if ATI fixes those problems. But I'd rather see the AGP fixes and a fix for the 1680x1050 problem, but according to your source those problems will all be solved

    I see sleep and hibernate. If it happens, I'm happy for another month ^^;

    Perhaps they will propagate the AGP fixes they recently figured out from the Windows side to the Linux side.
