windows move slowly (repaint/redraw) and firefox scrolls slowly with ATI driver
 
Running Debian lenny. I installed the Catalyst driver (from
manufacturer) for my ATI Radeon
HD 4550 card and it seems to be working, but I noticed something weird.
Now when I move a window it no longer shows the window static as it is
being moved,
it's like it keeps redrawing it as I move it. So as I drag it it will move it a
little then redraw the window, move it a little, then redraw the
window, etc. Also I noticed in Firefox when I scroll it does the same
thing, instead of keeping the text fixed it redraws the text as the
scroller moves. i really don't like this. It didn't do this in Ubuntu
and I used to same driver. How can I fix this? Here is my /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Hi!

Ok I have attached the log file.

BTW when I tried to run fglrxinfo and openarena here are the errors:

hyperyoda:# fglrxinfo

Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)

For openarena:

Yeah, your drivers are screwed up. Can you show us the output of 'dmesg' and 'lsmod' ?
