Hi! For this Acer/ati bug, I had upgraded to 2.6.32-23 on 4th Oct., and the system was running perferctly with that version. Yesteday I upgraded to 2.6.32-26, and it was only then the problems appeared. Now I tried using a sligthly older version (package linux-image-2.6.32-3-686, 2.6.32-9) which I still had installed on the system, and even that did not work any more. Also this version did work well earlier. Then I installed the package linux-image-2.6.30-2-686, 2.6.30-8squeeze1 which functions well, so now I have reverted my system to run on that version. To me it seems that something like this exists: | | recently-updated-Xorg | not-so-recent-Xorg | |------------------+-----------------------+--------------------| | 2.6.30-8squeeze1 | works | works | | 2.6.32-9 | does not work | works | | 2.6.32-23 | does not work | works | | 2.6.32-26 | does not work | unknown | Whatever happens, it is not only in the kernel, and not only in the Xorg video drivers, but a combination of some recent changes in both. Whatever info on the Acer/ATI system you want, I'll try to provide. Best, Harri K.
