    [SOLVED] Re: No DRI with open-source "radeon" driver

    That's fine. I'm not looking for peak performance. fglrx has been unstable for me.

    Slower DRI is OK, but no DRI is something wrong.

    [ubuntu] Re: Blank white box where webcam video should be

    Tried that. It did not work.

    The only thing that worked was a complete reinstall.

    Keep in mind that the white screen happened with all video, not just Skype.

    [ubuntu] Re: Blank white box where webcam video should be

    My solution, which worked, was a fresh 10.04 reinstall.

    Obviously there was something in the upgrade path from 9.04 or 9.10 to 10.04 that caused this issue for some of us.
