A few month ago I got my new laptop DELL PRECISION M6800 with RHEL preinstalled,
it worked fine up to the first upgrade of RHEL: X server broken, reason, the fglrx driver;
I solved the problem by downloading/installing 14.501.1003 (I guess, don't rememeber).
of course, no help from DELL, nor RedHat, they don't seem to be concerned by driver incompatibilities.
This summer, same game, after a RedHat update, X server again didn't launch (unresolved ...),
singleuser mode + startx showed that it again was an fglrx problem,
so I downloaded the latest one (15.20.1046) and got rid of the blanck screen, BUT
Now, I have at least two annoying problems:
1. the mouse cursor is messy, never good, sometimes two arrows, more often an arrow PLUS a rectangle filled with random pixels.
(result, I have to move cursor during read/edit of a text).
2. only (native ?) 1920 x 1080 screen resolution works, all other settings just display messy text,
(this was working with my previous Xserver/fglrx couple, and I need the 1600 x 900 res. to visually pair with a second display)
Any chance to get these two bugs solved ?,
Is there an (even less powefull) alternative to the Amd driver for this graphic card ?
