    Ubuntu 8.04 Radeon X600 OpenGL issues

    Hello-
    I'm very happy with 8.04 now that I've got wireless workig.
    However, there appears to be something wrong with the Radeon X600 restricted driver. Whenever I open a 3D app, such as AlienArena, Blender, or Google Earth, it works, but flickers.
    Without them, the 3D apps don't work at all.

    The drivers in 7.10 worked right, with a few minor bugs.(Blender would crash in game mode)

    What could be wrong?

    PS- Using Compiz, of course

    thanks,
    Questioneer

    Just to clarify, I'm using the ATi Accelerated Graphics driver from the Hardware Drivers panel

    Hmm...
    Having researched this, I see it seems to be a MAJOR bug.

    But things worked so much better in 7.10... what went wrong?

    Ubuntu seriously needs to fix stuff like this, instead of nonsensical stuff like changing the name of Restricted Drivers, and changing the Bittorent client.
    I mean, I can understand why lone developers cannot take such a task quickly, but Ubuntu has money and a company supporting it.

    Desktop Effects are completely useless until they can get 3D apps working with them... Seriously.

    In fact, many of the sites I've found say this is a problem for ALL drivers.
    Seriously, wth? What was wrong with the 7.10 drivers? I could run Blender, ET, and Compiz all at the same time with just a few bugs.

    Also, the 3D effects seem to be slower, and not as smooth.

    Again:
    Does anyone know any way to fix these problems?
