Similar experience with fglrx for ATI. Works mostly fine for 2D, but sometimes some parts of
the display are not updated when I switch desktops. Overlay mostly works, except when the
whole X server crashes. Googleearth works, except the popup windows are either "see-through"
or empty. Not to mention that I have to reboot the laptop when I take it off from the docking
station, because I can't switch between the built-in LCD and the outputs on the docking
station. Oh, and I haven't tested the TV-out yet. So it works, but there are a couple of
but's. Of course, it might not be something that the LDP could fix.
