I don't see any instructions for this newfangled dkms thing... Is it it done automatically? — SheeEttin {T/C} 09:13, 24 December 2007 (CST)

ANSWER: just install it before installing fglrx packages... they will invoke it. Nothing to do.


This guide use apt-get. Sometimes the apt-get and aptitude are interchangeable, but not always. Please don't edit this guide without knowing how use aptitude. For instance the commend "aptitude install -f" is not secure, can provoke damages (especially for "unstable" distributions). In my opinion apt-get is better for this guide. --Subvertigo 15:26, 13 January 2008 (CST)

Problems with 3D acceleration

When I try to load an app. that lacks 3D acceleration like Celestia, Stellarium etc. my computer just logs off, and I have to log back in!? Please guide me.

Found issues

Mipmapping in Compiz

When mipmapping is enabled in compiz modules then they the contents don't show up. Disabling mipmapping fixes these problems. Ubunty 7.10 and ATI 8.1.

Kibadock glitches

Kibadock has a black background when acceleration is NOT enabled. When acceleration IS enabled it has some problems with some applications where windows aren't visible.

Flickering video

When videos are played in various players including embedded on websites with firefox then the video flickers with black.
