    Quick question, will the installation guide below for gutsy work if I'm using Hardy and want to upgrade from 8.01 to 8.02?

    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?

    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.

    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 =)

    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...

    (Thinkpad T60p, 1680x1050, FireGL v5250, Fedora 7)

    is something wrong with this dmsg output?

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

    Code:
    	SubSection "Display"
