    AMD solve the Wine Problem with Cat/Fglrx 9-4alpfa

    I test this on Cat/Fglrx 9-4 8.60rc1 and Wine 1.1.16 with the benchmark Aquamark3

    Aquamark looks super nice with the 9-4 much much much better than with the Catalyst 9-2.

    there are still some errors like this :

    "fixme:d3d_shaderrint_glsl_info_log Error received from GLSL shader #177: "Fragment shader(s) linked, vertex shader(s) linked. \nWARNING: 0:2
    : extension 'GL_ARB_draw_buffers' is not supported "
    fixme:d3d_shaderrint_glsl_info_log Error received from GLSL shader #180: "Fragment sha
    : extension 'GL_ARB_draw_buffers' is not supported ""

    But tis is Pointless becourse its looks soo Great!

        It looks someone doesn't play fair and he's not so smart... All those lamenting and flaming people in 'AMD, I want super drivers now' threads, you sound like a children and nvidia or windows fanboys... AMD did great favor for us, because they released documentation. I won't even look at nvidia and their binary blobs.

          o Yes i'm not so smart becourse my english is not so Good or in other text its Worst :-)

          why sould i use 9-2 catalyst if the cat 9-4 alpfa works better ?

          why sould i use the opensource driver if i need OpenGL3 and WINE support ?

          in fakt the Opensource driver has OpenGL1,5 and will habe 2,1 but for wine this is not Good Entrue!

          for wine you need OpenGL3 !

            I thought about someone who 'leaked' 9.4 alpha driver.

                Not I want to find the 9.4 alpha driver ;-), but what's the filename of the fglrx driver exactly?

                  It's good that the Wine problem is fixed, but what about the Linux problem? :P

                    I also wonder. Is there a 'THE wine problem'? Isn't there more than one problem? Like an incomplete open-GL stack (compared to nvidia and what wine wants) etc.

                        AMD fixed the Driver problem... not WINE can make the next step and write new code for the AMD Carts!

                        in the past wine can't support fglrx becourse of bugs.. now they can up to the next bug they found...

                          That, or Nvidia-specific codepaths written by the Wine developers, or Nvidia drivers not following the OpenGL specs (GLSL-over-Cg compiler, I'm looking at you!)

                          Not that I'm defending Amd's OpenGL drivers (I've been bitten by enough bugs that it hurts), but the amount of badly written, Nvidia-only code out there is staggering. About half of the GLSL tutorials out there call *Cg* functions for $deity's sake! Not talking about obscure blogs and things like that, either, there tutorials exist in high-profile OpenGL-centric sites. Bah, I say.

                            the Opensource driver fix the linux problem...

                            but opengl1,4 and in futhure opengl 2.1 is not the winning part i think on wine you can'T win any cup with the opensource driver in the next 1 or 2 Years!

                              Thats not true the WINE DEVs has AMD/ATI codepaths to!

                              but in the past the ATI codepaths hang on DX8 and the DX9 lag on bug's in the fglrx!

                              i can make Pictures with old 8.10 catalyst and 9.1/9.2 catalyst and 9.4 catalyst...

                              and you will see not all is going right with the same wine 1.1.16!

                              OpenGL3 on the 9.1 driver brings a Boost in colorfull ans speed but the rendering is to dark becourse some textures not have the right gamma...

                              in 9.4 you can see the wine app in 99% near to the windows nativ app.
