    G.K., what is your screen resolution ? If it's not a multiple of 64, have you tried the "64 pixel" workaround (adding a "Virtual" line which rounds the screen resolution up to a multiple of 64) ?

      Yes, that works. Thanks v. much for that .

      Here is the change I made to xorg.conf
      Code:
      	SubSection "Display"
      		Viewport   0 0
      		Depth     24
      		Modes    "1400x1050"
      		Virtual  1408 1088
      	EndSubSection

            g.k.,

            When you run compiz with the virtual workaround, do you get corruption in the lower-right corner of your screen, as well as 4 thick horizontal lines attached to the cursor? I have not been able to get rid of this...

                Well I've an ATIx700 mobile and i've changed from 7.12+xgl to this new release and now finally I got some good news!

                Scrool works great (better than with xgl!)
                general effects are much faster
                I can hibernate
                I can restart x with any problem

                on the other hand totem can't play movies, if I open one with it it justs quit totem
                m player play filmes but can't put then in full screen, if I do that the video don't change it's resolution just got all black around the original size os the movie
                But i can play them with VCL with no problems..
                I only have tee wars game instaled and with compiz running it runs with tearing
                and glxgears is currupted and I need to restartX to put my desktop working after running it!

                if anyone can solve any of my problems i apreciate =)

                  It could be interesting to run some kind of 2d benchmark with/without Compiz and with both AIGLX and XGL for every driver and see how the performance changes.

                    Code:
                    ~$ sudo dkms status
                    fglrx, 8.455.2, 2.6.22-14-generic, i686: installed 
                    
                    $ sudo dkms remove -m flgrx -v 8.455.2 --all
                    
                    Error! There are no instances of module: flgrx
                    8.455.2 located in the DKMS tree.
                    Anybody know how to fix a broken dkms tree?
