    any ideas???

    i tried here:

    but nothing changed
    Personally I'm using Mandriva 2010 Alpha w. 2.6.31-rc1-kernel, the open source driver works flawlessly for me. Great 2D-acceleration, great 2D IQ, video looks awesome. No 3D of course, one currently has to use the fglrx driver for that.

    I use Gnome, it's possible I would encounter more problems if I used KDE4 as Kwin might not like the absent 3D-support in the open source driver. But with Gnome it's perfect and I'm very happy with my HD4350. Totally silent, HDMI + HDMI-audio and low power consumption

    May I suggest you switch to Gnome and see to it that you use the open source driver?

      OpenGL screensavers will never run fast on a 2d only driver. If you would think before that should be clear...

        i was actually rather suprised with how good the 780/3200 is.
