I recompiled

kernel 3.1.10-r1

with the only new setting CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND=Yes

then emerged

ati-drivers 12.4

again.

Now i have a watermark in the right bottom of the screen showing this message.

What to do and why is this suddenly?

Thanks in advance

Very strange indeed...

Sorry i forgot

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV620 [Mobility Radeon HD 3400 Series]

Maybe it's relevant, an emerge update installed 12.6_beta driver because it was unmasked
in package.keywords. However, i switched back to 12.4 without rebooting so 12.6_beta was never loaded.

if I'm not mistaken ati proprietary driver dropped support to <HD5000 cards in that version, findout what is the highest version that supports you card or switch to the open source driver.

Right, that's why i uninstalled it and installed 12.4 again.

Now it looks like this:

12.4 installed -> watermark
Installed 12.2 -> watermark disappears
Installed 12.4 again -> watermark still gone

Maybe the 12.6_beta installation left over some config files(?) that let the 12.4 driver think about a 'unsupported' hardware and the 12.2 install removed it.

Problem solved for now

This probably happens everytime the stable version in portage is an ATI beta. It happens again now with stable ati-drivers-12.11_beta. But since x11-drivers/ati-drivers-12.10, one can do USE="disable-watermark" to solve the problem.

BTW: I currently also have that problem and that use-flag uses a dirty binary patch and is broken currently - it reproducibly lets the driver coredump.

in use are ati-drivers-12.11_beta, xf86-video-ati-7.0, mesa-9.0

Are there any other ways to get that stupid blend-in grafic vanish?

Did you try adding 'disable-watermark' to your /etc/portage/package.use/package.use
Code:

x11-drivers/ati-drivers disable-watermark

:D
Thanks for this, Step.

It still is like this in 12.11_beta11. Guess it is a permanent "feature". Unnecessary, but not surprising that AMD want to emphasise the beta status with this as a disclaimer.

Also, I keep misreading the eix output. It said -disable-watermark in blue text and for a minute I thought that meant it was disabled.
Of course it comes out red if the use flag is active. So fixed with the addition to package.use.
