Re: fglrx drivers from rpmfusion-updates-testing

Turning off compiz allows the viewing of graphics (videos) without flicker.

With compiz on, viewing graphics with any program (e.x. VLC) gives me a split screen, but no flicker.  I have 9/10th of screen above a line, and 1/10th below a line, at my chosen resolution. I did not try to lower the screen resolution, will do it and report back.

The problem of lockup (keyboard, monitor et al) when trying to switch users is still present (even without compiz). 

With the Fedora drivers, I can switch users without any problems.  Again, video card is ati hd 3450 (64bit)

fwiw, I 'yum remove'd the new packages and reinstalled the old ones,
and all flickering has gone away.

When i had installed the 8.573-1.9.1.fc10 version, they were in
updates-testing. however now I see them in updates. Good thing they
still have the older version still available there. This looks like an
ATI issue, as my XP install also has this flickering with the latest


Open source is the future. It sets us free.
