Hardy, KDE4 and fglrx

Hi all

I have a hp compaq 8510p and it has an ATI Radeon 2600, therefore I
have to use fglrx. With Gutsy it works more or less (xscreensaver
crashed some times, suspend does not work, compiz did not work at all)

I also installed Kubuntu Hardy to try out KDE4. When I try to logout
or reboot the screen gets blank and since I cannot see anything, I
assume that it crashed. (It stays black when pressing ctrl-alt-fn)
Because ATI is known for crappy drivers I guess that they are the
reasons and just wanted to ask if anybody has the same problems and if
there are known workarounds for it. I also don't mind if DRI or compiz
is not working, if I can get basic functionality to work correct.

I installed the latest fglrx drivers from ati using --buildpkg=Ubuntu/Hardy.
