I had to go to 173 to get those to work.
That's actually how I had it running under 177.80, with no desktop effects. And the video playback was still awful. Most of the time, I would be lucky to get 30 seconds into the video before Firefox would stop responding. Switching to 173 fixed that problem, but I still can't enable desktop effects without something going screwey. Why is the 8200m G getting the short end of the stick here?
