    If you are using 64-bit, use the script below:

    #!/bin/sh

    DRIVER=/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so

    for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
    sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
    done

    Can you please explain how you did it? I mean, i'm working with ubuntu for quite a while now, but i'm not very into this "system"-stuff... Thank you very much.
    I just came up with this idea that I aways use to add these two ppa:s when I install ubuntu:

    ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates

    and
    xorg-edgers

    maybe it have something to do with my success, but probably not. Anyways, now you have everyhing I use(d) to successfully get it working.

    done
    That didn't work for me either (I'm on 64-bit), what did the trick though was using DRIVER=/usr/lib/fglrx/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so

    Hope that helps others too.

    Re: AMD HD 6850 drivers

    When I watch it in fullscreen in 720p is my cpu approximatly using up to 80% load, using flash 10.1 r102 and a 3.6 Ghz intel c2d dualcore with 8 GB ram.

    but no lag or other artifacts.

    Maybe you should try with flash 10.2?

    Thanks I tried 10.1 and 10.2 from the repo's and a ppa, same on both. Just to be sure, are you using a radeon 6000 series?

    I added the new info on the cchtml wiki, but can anyone confirm which version of the script which did work on Ubuntu 10.10 x86?
