    Just that you can not use the driver with Xserver 1.7, they should have used a newer base.

        A *very* quick glance suggests that this *does* support xserver1.7....

        Code:
        if [ "$xorg_server_ver_num" ]
                    then
                        if [ `echo "$xorg_server_ver_num" | grep -c '1\.7'` -gt 0 ]
                        then                    
                            X_VERSION="Xorg"
                            x_ver_num="7.5"
                        elif [ `echo "$xorg_server_ver_num" | grep -c '1\.6'` -gt 0 ]
                        then                    
                            X_VERSION="Xorg"
                            x_ver_num="7.4"
                        elif [ `echo "$xorg_server_ver_num" | grep -c '1\.5'` -gt 0 ]
                        then                   
                            X_VERSION="Xorg"
                            x_ver_num="7.4"
                        elif [ `echo "$xorg_server_ver_num" | grep -c '^1\.4'` -gt 0 ]
                        then
                            X_VERSION="Xorg"
                            x_ver_num="7.3"
                        fi
                    fi
        
        
                    if [ "${x_name}" = "Xorg" -a ${x_maj} -eq 7 -a ${x_min} -eq 5 ]; then
                		x_ver_internal=x740
                    # Map Xorg 7.4
                    elif [ "${x_name}" = "Xorg" -a ${x_maj} -eq 7 -a ${x_min} -eq 4 ]; then
           		        x_ver_internal=x740
                    else
                        # Workaround to set internal version number (for platform binary
                        # directory) to handle modular X
                        if [ ${x_maj} -lt 4 -o ${x_maj} -ge 7 ]; then
                                x_ver_internal=x690
                        fi
                    fi

          Why can't they do this with the Ubuntu Beta drivers? It proves that they can release unsupported drivers... well maybe they will start supporting the latest Xorg before it is released.

            Do you see a x750 dir? I don't, but feel free to try it.

              No, but it very specifically sets it to use x740 when 7.5 is detected. Now why would they bother with that unless the x740 files were rigged to work with 7.5?

                That was always the case in previous versions too.

                  Don't say that! I once had 3 Displays connected to my computer .....

                  As a matter of fact two of my old CRT's died since then, but there will come a time when I once again own more than 2 functioning displays and then I will be Very Thankful to AMD for this feature.


                  @ Dirver: Well done. Nice seeing AMD catch up on the diver side.

                      Does anyone knows the code for the /etc/ati/signature file, to remove the watermark?
