I am having the same problem... I thought I would pipe in with some
I experienced the above problem when using Radeon IGP 9100 with shared
videoram set in BIOS to use 64MB.
I do NOT experience this problem on the same machine, with the on-board
Radeon IGP 9100 (and surroundview) disabled, using an AGP Radeon 9600XT
w/ 256 MB videoram.
I conducted these tests using both the stable version of xorg, and the
beta version currently in Gentoo Portage. I did not yet try the mplayer
option "-xo x11" ... will try that later tonight.
Maybe this information can help... maybe not...
btw, ati surroundview doesn't work AT ALL in linux... I have not tried
the fglrx drivers yet, but I dont think that will make much of a
difference, as this has nothing to do with 3d drm. I plan to write this
up in a later email with a detailed description. Nobody seems to know
what surroundview is (besides me), so I'll include a full explanation
More information about the xorg
