Card: ATI (RV730 9490)
System: 11.3_x64 / 11.4_x64
In 11.3 the radon driver always was loaded even if it was added in /etc/modprobe.conf/fglrx.conf file not to load.
Now in 11.4 this works fine and you don’t have to specify nomodeset as kernel boot option and it works out of the box.
Thanks a lot!
But now it’s the other way round. It’s impossible to load the radeon driver.
I have disabled to load fglrx driver in /etc/modprobe.d/fglrx.conf
Other problem in 11.3 radeon driver hat max. resolution of 1200x1024 for my system where the fglrx driver has 1600x1200 but fglrx driver flickers tremendous in google-eaerth.
This seems to be also solved in 11.4
What I have is a strange issue if you have a second session in 11.4.
The first session always is ok even you switch several times to the second session and the other way round.
But the second one has some problems.
- the bottom right edge is mangled (about 1/6 of the length almost all Taskbar icons)
- The most problem is that the mousepointer disappears if there is an “update” of an “other” X11 event it seems.
For example you point the mouse over “Desktop Folder” and the “Modify-Tab” comes on, the mouse pointer goes away if you move the mouse it appears again.
To reproduce this error you can start xosview and the mouse pointer disappears “always” because update of xosview…
This is very bad because for example it’s very difficult to put an window in the background when configured with a mouse button
This seems to be a kde problem because it does not exit with IceWn nor with Twm
Is this already a known bug?
