    ati driver 8.7 and choppy games

    Hi, I have a pretty fast ubuntu box and since I installed 8.7 fglrx driver (I can see it being installed correctly, direct rendering availiable) but almost all games run really choppy and mouse movement is shifted in time.
    I speculation of mine was a incompatibility with SDL... any thoughts??

    Are you running compiz? This seems to be a common complaint with fglrx while compiz is running.
