    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 10.1 Driver For Linux Released

    AMD has done their monthly roundabout and released the ATI Catalyst 10.1 Linux driver. Found in the Catalyst 10.1 driver change-log is "Ubuntu 9.10 production support", even though AMD seeded them with an unreleased Catalyst driver since September and the official Catalyst releases since October have worked just fine with Ubuntu 9.10...

      Might as well start. Fedora is one of the most popular distros out there. How can supporting 5 months old xserver be so hard?

            karmic installation

            Did someone succeed to install it on Karmic?

            I run:
            sh ati-driver-installer-10-1-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/karmic

            And then after a lot of warnings it fails because of not finding libatiuki.so.1, see bellow. It was also downloading and installing some packages after the execution.

            ...
            dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: symbol XFreeFontInfo used by debian/xorg-driver-fglrx/usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2 found in none of the libraries.
            dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: 21 other similar warnings have been skipped (use -v to see them all).
            dpkg-shlibdeps: error: couldn't find library libatiuki.so.1 needed by debian/xorg-driver-fglrx/usr/lib/xorg/modules/linux/libfglrxdrm.so (ELF format: 'elf64-x86-64'; RPATH: '').

                Isn't that the price that you pay for being at the forefront with fedora?

                  I got the same problem.
                  Same here.
                  Now, that's what you call "production support"...

                    That crap breaks dpkg-configure on karmic. Don't try to install it.

                      That means your hopes were too high. Either you're a n00b to fglrx or you're certifiably insane (doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results), but hey, there's always next month..

                      AMD Eyefinity might also be working on Linux, or at least the ability to use three monitors from a single AMD Radeon HD 5000 series graphics card,
                      I hope it didn't take too much development effort to enable this super bleeding-edge feature on Linux. It would have been better spent on updating the Catalyst 9-3 Legacy drivers to work with Xserver 1.6 so we wouldn't have to hear so many people whining about not being able to use their R500 cards.

                        LOL, the one new feature mentioned in the release notes is Ubuntu 9.10 support. Seems that they didn't even manage to get that right. Anyway it installed fine here. I just chose to let the installer do the installation and not build a package.

                          X.Org 7.5-Support is an AMD/Ati problem, not a fedora problem. X.Org 7.5 is out there for months, why does AMD/Ati not support it?

                            I'm not a newb to fglrx and they did a better job last time with xserver 1.6. I know, AMD/Ati has a "3-month-release-cycle" so it would be "okay", if they are releasing a xserver 1.7/X.Org 7.5-Support in Catalyst 10.1, but they did not. That's why I'm dissapointed.

                              Phoned this one in...

                              Wow, even I am amazed on how little went into this release.

                              The message is clear: buy from us to get amazing things, but just install it on a Windows platform why dontcha?
