    Any Other ATI Users Having a Hard TIme?

    so 8.10 comes out and i download it. fglrx wont even activate, so its back to 8.04 for me because i like being able to scroll down screens without lag! Then i decide to give 9.04 a whirl, and it took a seconds worht of lag to minimize anything...getting better i guess?

    i have also had a hard time with a lot of other distros and my gfx (ATI mobility hd 3470) card...anyone else having the same trouble?

    How do you mean "from flawless"?

    I like how easy to install the drivers are, but there performance and reliability have always been bad.

    Were you using Compiz in 8.04? If not, maybe that's why it was flawless. Fglrx isn't bad if you're not using compositing.

    I had trouble on 8.10 with my radeon 1270 (it would not resume from stand by). The problem went away after I downloaded the driver for my card from amd's web site.

    Did you try using it without compiz enabled? It's not like it's essential now is it?

    Hmmm. Maybe the drivers work better for HD2000+ cards or something. My x1250 in my laptop is not a pleasant experience with FGLRX.
