      I never wait more than 1 month to get my new release supported, so I remain optimistic

        If you don't mind making a big mess with installed packages, you can do something really crazy, like what I did to get the intel psb drivers working on F12... downgrade X to the F11 packages.

        I had basically two choices; F11 or F12 with X downgraded to what's from F11. I would have gone with F11, except I couldn't get the wireless card working there and it was easier to downgrade X in F12 than to track down the reason.

        • Hello,

          I have a problem with my installation : I cant use xvba. I used Kano script to install everything.

                When you switched to 9.12 w/hotfix, did you update libamdxvba1 package as well?

                • You can write that test differently too

                  Code:
                  if [ "$LOGNAME" = gbeauche ]; then
                   echo checking for XvBA... yes
                  else
                   echo checking for XvBA... no
                  fi

                  • Well, i'll try later, when everything will be more mature... (vaapi available in ffmpeg, mplayer and so on).
                    The 9.12 hotfix broke the play of video in xbmc (blue screen), so i had to reinstall 9.10...

                    • Has anyone had success with Cat 10.1 and XvBA?
                      Considering the facts that I could not even build packages for Ubuntu 9.04 or Debian Testing, I will stay with 9.10/9,12 for now.
