fglrx redux

ATI has released a new version of the fglrx driver. What has changed since the previous one?

  • DVI output works
  • XVideo playback of 720p content works

Suspend doesn’t work at all (system locks up and screen is garbled).

    You should try to use vbetools, it makes hibernate works on my t42p thinkpad with ATI Drivers.

    ATI driver sucks! I can’t have dual screen on my laptop with it, whereas i can with the open source driver.

    I was having a hell of a time with fglrx on hoary. My laptop hated it, suspend was impossible. Does the open-source driver (above:Matt) do suspend at all?

    The newest drivers lack the ability to check modelines for laptop LCDs because of some internal reworking. BLEH! The long driver release schedule makes this a thorn that will hang around for much too long.

    Using radeon xorg drivers now and missing out on 3d. Such is life, ati sucks.

    I just dumped my old Laptop (NVidia) for a new one with “better” Graphics (ATI) and now my framerates are lower than before even with 3D-acceleration, suspend doesn’t work at all anymore and the X.org composite-extension screws up my display.
    Yay ATI! You just lost a customer.
