      I am running a similar driver on Ubuntu maverick for quite some time and it's running great. The 10.10 release fixes the last known 2D problems and other critical bugs.

        Sounds too good to be true, lol. Guess that means the last remaining thing to fix now is Xv? (For applications that do not support GL video rendering.)

          Well the definition "great" is most likely not a direct comparision between nv and ati on the same system

            Sure, 3 hours after the new driver has landed in repository I do the upgrade and ..voila ! 33.500 FPS on glxgears (and 17.500 with catalyst 10.8) also Compiz work now perfect with gaussian blur activated.

            Quake Wars - run perfect - no any black texture
            Google Earth - run perfect

            For other Linux native game clients I will do the test this evening
            but until now Catalyst 10.9 seems to be a major upgrade both in speed and rendering quality.

            From my point of view for Catalyst 10.9 in Maverick >>>> Nota Bene.

            Btw - I use Radeon HD 5570

              This is actually a Catalyst 10.10 beta, not 10.9.

                  You know what? I think that everybody by now is REALLY sick of hearing you spout your nvidia fanaticism. It is REALLY REALLY TIRED now. Please knock it off.

                      Great job, AMD!

                      I'm a bigger fan of your FLOSS support and use that instead, but this duo-driver thing is great!

                            Did anyone test this driver with an Evergreen (5x00) card and Heroes of Newerth? Is it working?
