I've had great interest in this thread as I bought the Asus 35 zacate based pro motherboard.
I've tried to follow the instructions in post 1& 2 but when I hit fglrxinfo, I get
X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 137 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 14
Current serial number in output stream: 14
Anyone know what I might have done wrong? I am new to ubuntu, and I love it so far, but without proper support for video playing I am ready to throw in the towel and buy windows, which I really don't want!!
I started with an install of ubuntu desktop btw, not the mini install, is that a reason for any issues?
Thanks so much!

Guys why now can't update kernel 188.8.131.52 from Xorg-edger anymore?

had the same issue, ended up installing them from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.39-rc4-natty/
with these instructions I found on the ubuntu forum:
Quote:Download the proper files for my architecture. In my case, the 2 i386.deb files & the all.deb file (3 files total).

I'm running XBMC right now on Kernel 3.0 (from xorg-edgers)
The only problem is libva. I could install the patched 11.6 ATI drivers without any problem.
The problem seems to be the name of the xvba driver.
VAAPI tries to open /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_drv_video.so while the folder only has fgrlx_dri.so.
Anything obvious that I'm missing here?
fixed: now running XBMC on kernel 3.0
I had to manually create the link so that /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_drv_video.so points /usr/lib/va/drivers/xvba_drv_video.so

After a bit of trying and failing (with great help from the posts in this thread) I managed to get XBMC with VAAPI working on my Zotac AD02 (Natty desktop 2.6.39-3). But I noticed a problem that, as far as I can see, nobody else has reported in this thread. With many of my videos there was a problem with parts of the frames jumping back and forward when playing with VAAPI enabled. I also tried the OpenELEC build, but the same problem was present there.
After som googling I found the following ticket: #10928. After applying the patch from that ticket and re-building XBMC, the problem was gone.
Am I the only one who has had this problem?

I've gotten nowhere,
reinstalled ubuntu 11.04
ran all updates
installed 11.6 via this guide
kept my 11.04 kernel, as the 9-3 line doesn't work for me and rc-4 gave me ltos of errors installing stuff afterwards
installed the rest of the guide, but then on the first line of post two, it can't find libcrystalhd-dev
subsequent configure command then fails

what's the build version of openelec that you tried?
I'm currently using the fusion r7535 build and pretty much everything is working for me, I might have one video that fits your description of frames "jumping back and forward" but since this video plays fine with a similar openelec build for ion box I was thinking it might be more a catalyst driver issue for me.
