Updating video driver FAIL.

Thought I’d update the 3 year old video driver on my 3 year old ATI HD3650, which does the job on my business-use VM running machine under XP64.

Less than delighted to find VMs crashing the host when I switch them to full screen console mode, as I do when I use Emacs.

Clearly a case of minimal testing of the latest shiny drivers (11-5_xp64_dd_ccc_ocl, April 2011 build) with older hardware/OS configurations.

Back to the old driver. The new driver hadn’t fixed a minor mouse issue with VMWare anyway.
