Default Re: bug report: drivers after 173 kills full-screen Flash performance for the 8200

Any hints on this?

Sorry, I am using Ubuntu 8.10, and the Hardware driver panel gives me 2 choices.. 177 (which is 177.80) and 173 (which is 173.14.12). Those are the "easy" installs for me. When I used 177, I got the bad results.

I also installed 177.82, 180.11, and 180.16 by hand during various other attempts to debug this. But I did not try 173 by hand (never thought going backwards would help, and when I did decide to go backwards I had the easy 173 install via Synaptic)
