sorry about the two day delay, i was busy over the weekend. (visiting colleges and such)

http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Performance_Issues

have you tried the 2D option yet?

ehhhh also post your xorg.conf
just so we can check it.

googling scrolling fglrx will get you lots of complaints pertaining to your problem.

seems the new fglrx version (which i am happy that it supports the new cards) is still kind of buggy.

Arrow ati video card drivers for linux

hi there,

linux and graphics cards can be fun. i use ati mostly but when it came to my linux box i chose nvidia. i chose nvidia because i heard they had better support than ati - which has since changed. i to at first had some issues as well. after figuring out and reading that the drivers both nvidia and ati provide aren't the best and that i should go the route of third party drivers instead. i couldn't find the exact link i used however this link is close: http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-t...-6-38740.shtml . the drivers provided by the manufactures do not take into account certain things, if i recall some of the requirements for the kernel.... anyway try getting your drivers from the rpm.livna.org site and i bet you get better results. you can get to the livna site by going here http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/.

let me know if this works for you!

cheers... brendan
