I thought I heard that fglrx 9.1 was not compatible with the xserver 1.6 included in Jaunty.
Does fglrx 9.1 really runs under Jaunty ?
Thanks for any input, that's the last thing I'm waiting for before switching to Jaunty :)

No, it's not compatible. If you look at the changelog for the fglrx driver package (http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/restricted/f/fglrx-installer/fglrx-installer_8.573-0ubuntu4/changelog) it has this:
fglrx-installer (2:8.573-0ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low
* New upstream release. (9-1).
- This release still does *not* meet the Xorg server 1.6 ABI.
It is being uploaded to ensure that there are no other integration
related issues that come up.

The updates since then have not been significant.
Things seem to work fine for me for every day desktop use with the open source driver, though. I don't play any games or anything like that. Only thing that's a little funny is Skype video.

Does the RadeonHd driver allows to use any kind of 3d acceleration for desktop compositing (compiz) with rv770 (4800 series) ?

No, not quite yet. There is an experimental branch available for testing:

Yeah, I read that changelog, but looked at the package version number, so was confused.
Thanks. I was just curious, but I don't need it, because after upgrading to Intrepid, I found out my graphic card finally worked with an out-of-the-box open-source driver.
