Videos and Games Flash with ATI Driver

Postby hank863 on Fri Sep 05, 2008 12:28 pm

I installed the fglrx driver though "Hardware Drivers" and whenever I run anything like Sauerbraten, the screen flashes repeatedly. It's rather annoying. I have installed Sabayon before, played Sauerbraten on it, and had no problems with the ATI driver. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

It's very hard to tell what happens on that info. I would recommend to use Envy to first uninstall and then install the driver
Envy and the "Restricted Drivers" tool install somewhat differently and in my opinion Envy generally makes a better job
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
