    So, if you don't mind, what version of fglrx-updates are you using? If I understand correctly, you have it working using xvba-video 0.8.0-1 (from splitted-desktop), not xvba-va-driver 0.7.8-1ubuntu1...

    Is there a way to reset update-alternatives? I messed around a bit with that command trying to get fglrx 8.861 to work, and now after uninstalling it, I can't get back to a working X environment. :/
