*I still have issues with suspending in Ubuntu 7.10 (for me, it suspends successfully, but it gives a black screen on restore. Some others on the Phoronix forums say they can't even suspend successfully.)  Also, like Catalyst 7.12, vlc seems to go haywire. Your mileage may vary.*

*Note: According to the [https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/catalyst_81_linux.html release notes], the driver supports suspend '''only''' on 2.6.23 and above! Using 2.6.22 it didn't work for me with 8.01, whereas it did with 7.12.
>>What's your kernel version?
+
Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic (Ubuntu 7.10 is up to date so latest stock kernel.  I should note that this isn't a clean Ubuntu install; however I haven't done anything too radical.)
