I bought Starcraft II today and i've got a problem with starting it under POL. When I start it there are red dots all over my screen. (they're larger than 1 Pixel)

I think it's a problem with my graphic card...

I've got a sapphire graphic card but I don't know exactly which one (I'll look later, I can't look now). I bought it half a year ago and then it was one of the best graphic cards so it shouldn't be a performance problem...

I hope you can help me... :sad:

I you're using ubuntu, use this repository to have lastest Graphic driver :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update

BTW, you're probably right, ATI/AMD linux driver is horrible, and you will have poor performances regardless of your hardware anyway...

Yeah good idea.... I made the update and now my pc doesn't boot anymore... :(
When the ubuntu-start screen should appear there appears a black scree with a white line appears (like the line you get if you press shift and minus).

What's the reason for this and should I do now?? :sad:

1 -Boot
2- Use CTRL+SHIFT+F1 to go to tty1 and log-in
3- If you have periodic x11 boot-up (failed), tape : sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
4- Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and replace the Driver "fglrx" with Driver "radeon"
5- Reload gdm : sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start, if it's start then it's a graphic driver problem,
6- If it's a driver problem, remove the added repository using Synaptic, refresh repo list and force driver re-install, this will make the original driver to install again.
7- reverse xorg.conf change if it's not already done by driver re- install and reboot.
8- it's done,
