View Full Version : kmod-fglrx driver problem

19th January 2008, 07:10 PM
I'm using Fedora Core 8. I've installed the kmod-fglrx driver for my ATI graphix card, but this has been causing some problems for me. After using my PC for a while, I get two black/grey stripes in the lower-left corner. One is directly on top of the desktop switcher, the other about 2cm above it.
I've tried taking a screenshot, but the stripes don't show up on there. I'm also sure that they aren't dead pixels, since I don't always have these things here (they come after a while), and I don't get them at all on WindowsXP.
I uninstalled the driver, and the problem was gone, but I couldn't watch any video anymore, so I reinstalled it, but the problem just came back.

Does anyone know how to solve this??

* Connecting a display device that supports 1680x1050 to a system running Linux will no longer result in a maximum display resolution of 1280x1024 only being available
* Custom mode lines in xorg.conf will no longer be ignored by the fglrx driver
* Suspending to RAM or DISK on kernel version 2.6.23 or later no longer fails
