Dear listmembers,
dear Stefan,
this bug has definitively been introduced with the ATI-Release from January,
16th. The release before is functional as expected - well, two issues here:

1.) one must not try to change configuration even if sax2 asks you for/offers
it to you. Doing so (i. e. trying to change configuration) results in a black
screen you can only get rid of via a reboot (here!),

2.) the (still persistent) mutex error:
[fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x00000002 not found in mutex list
[fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x00000004 not found in mutex list
[fglrx:firegl_free_mutex] *ERROR* mutex id 0x00000006 not found in mutex list

So, what regards my AGP-card (RX2600Pro from MSI) the following summary can
be
drawn:
- 8.43: crashes & freezes the system
- 8.443: does work (except the comments as depicted above)
- 8.45.4: does work (except the BusID issue and the free_mutex issues ....)

So, given you have deep enough knowledge you may manage to get the driver
working :-(

And, finally: anything that depends on YUY2 support (i.e. tvtime) does not
work as YUY2 is currently not supported from ATI.

Thank you for looking into this,
take care

Dear listmembers,
to whom it may concern: I use an AGP RX2600Pro card from MSI. When
configuring as described using

sax2 -r -0=fglrx

the string
Section "Device"
BoardName "RX2600Pro"
#BusID "1:5:0"
Driver "fglrx"

"BusID" causes trouble, the driver cannot start 3D acceleration. Messages
like (EE):

The solution is _very_ simple: comment out the line
"BusID" and everything (besides the good old mutex-errors) seems fine, 3D
is functional.

Sounds weird. Is this a new bug introduced with 8.45?

Best regards,
Stefan
