    Well 9-9 is released, but as everybody waits for 9-10 or 9-11 that's basically a boring release. My script will install it, but it does not add .31 support.

        O yes i use Catalyst 9.10 beta!... Beta's @ AMD always be better than the stable ons!

        Kernel 2.6.31 is much better!...

        Realy 9.9 is a boring release ... the PR from AMD is really uncool 9,9 was interesting 2 or 3 weeks Ago...

        2-3 Weeks Ago i really install it but today? not really !

        I'm waiting for the 9.10 stable or 9.11 beta...

        9.10 feels good i do not downgrade a good driver!

          Great, 9.9 downsamples Icons, Fonts ... to gain performance while switching Desktop.

          Fixing something, which has never been a problem by making it look ugly doesn't solve anything.

            Just installed it on my HD3200... I see no difference in performance with the previous version (9.8), but it says Xv overlay is not available (it was before, at least in 9.7, I don't remember checking xorg.conf when I installed 9.8).
            Screen-Related Options:
            --ovt, --overlay-type=STRING
            Change the overlay for the X server. STRING can be one of:
            opengl
            disable
            and aticonfig --ovt=Xv says : invalid string value.
            Anyway, VLC says it uses it, and it works with SD and HD video.

            Could anyone explain? Thanks.

              has output here, so xv is available. But do you really want to use it when it has tearing all the time? I prefer setting opengl to quality and then use opengl output. xv has to be fixed before it is useable.

                Ubuntu 9.04 menu item still tries to start catalyst root version by referencing some non-existent script/app to gain root privileges...

                anyone know if compositing problems have been fixed yet? e.g. freeze on wake from sleep with compositing enabled? etc.

                [EDIT]
                *snicker* just noticed:
                "ATI Catalyst™ 9.8 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver"
                on the diver download page, but their revision table entry correctly lists 9.9 ...
                *sigh*

                  Does it support Fedora 11 at last? or shall I wait another bloddy month?
                  (I will not download it unless it works with F11 and worths spending download time, because I'm using dial up! )

                    Yup. 64-bit F11, Radeon HD 3200 integrated here. I was running 9.8 with the fix to allow hardware cursor previously, if that makes a difference. Too soon to comment on stability. Kernel 2.6.30.5-43.fc11.x86_64.

                      Yet another buggy piece of shit.
                      Texture corruption all around. Even worst than it was with 9.8. Well, I think I'll have to go back to 9.7. This was the last version that worked more-or-less fine with my HD3450. Or even better, maybe it's time to start testing drm-from-git on my hardware.

                        Yeah... I downloaded, and installed it on My Fedora 11. But guess what!
                        aticonfig --initial: No supported adapters detected

                        after that my X kept not starting...

                        If it helps, I have provided the Xorg log file's important peice of output:

                          I think that log shows that you're using the 9.8 and not the 9.9 driver. Here's from my log:

                            Well, I tried both, and none resulted. When I installed the 9.9 catalyst, the message told me that errors occured, and I should look at the fglrx_install.log file.

                            and here it is:

                              As it said, I restarted the laptop. After booting up, the system crashed, everytime. I blacklisted the radeon and radeonhd modules and this time system came up. But I don't have any kind of acceleration.

                              glxinfo says:
                              X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)

                              I can not run aticonfig cause it says:
                              aticonfig: No supported adapters detected

                              Really, what should I do so that I can use half of my graphic cards power to complete my university project...
