FGLRX 9.7 + 2.6.30-amd64 + KDE 4.3


I'm having a couple issues with FGLRX on my latest install. Other than the 2 issues I am having, FGLRX seems to work ok.

1. When I end an X session, I get FGLRX errors:
Code:
[182852.483822] [fglrx:drm_vm_open] *ERROR* map not found -> inconsistent kernel data!!! vma_start:0x7ff91a216000,handle:0x125e6000
[182852.485566] [fglrx:drm_vm_close] *ERROR* map not found -> inconsistent kernel data!!! vma_start:0x7ff91a216000,handle:0x125e6000
I understand this is an issue with 2.6.29+ kernels. Only problem with this is when I end X, the errors are printed on the screen. The longer X is running, the more it prints. I have to wait for all the errors to print before the machine will do anything else. Can I have rsyslog send these errors to a log rather than showing them all on the screen?

2. I'm using KDE 4.3. Everything seems to be working well except video playback. Videos will play well at first, but as time goes on, video will become choppy, slow, distorted, CPU intensive, etc... Are there any options in Xorg.conf that I can use to correct this?

This is an example of how video output looks like: video frames will skip, repeat, lose color, hog cpu power. only restarting X will temporarily fix it.

FGLRX 9.8 hit the repo a couple days ago, upgraded from 9.7 to 9.8. The errors messages stopped, and video performance under KDE4 is much better now, though not always as smooth as it is under other WMs such as fluxbox.
