    Not only with mplayer, please don't tell nonsense.

    So for native linux games fglrx is basically fine, but i am even disappointed about the win opengl driver state.
    On a French news site, they told AMD even recommended to HD 6000 series users to stick on the 10.10e driver on Windows. The hotfixes are going to be integrated into the 10.12 driver. Actually, it's more like the other way around: the hotfixes were backported from a newer branch. There probably will be another hotfix for 10.11 with those too.

      It's a two way street, no one is going to develop games for linux if the drivers don't work.

        well, EXCUSE me for still using my x1300 card. which happens to be unsupported by fglrx.

          For the first time I'm not interested in updating my drivers anymore. I simply expect it to be as bad as 10.10. My next laptop, which I will buy in a few months will contain nvidia.

          That is unless within that time AMD comes out with video acceleration and tear free video.

            I still go nVidia to this day with graphics. if JC tells us it's good then I can't argue with him. AMD still make good cpu's at least. I wouldn't call my nvidia 460 GTX (asus) a powerhouse though. Probably slower than a 4870 in fact. But it's the only stable nVidia card with decent performance and good Linux drivers for me at least.

              Thanks for the heads up

                ?? uhh i use the radeon for gaming mybe i'm mentally retarded...

                the biggest difference radeon vs catalyst for me is the 32bit in 64bit s3tc support---

I've been using the Gallium3D driver for my 4200 IGP for about three months now, and classic mesa for quite a while before that, and experienced less crashes than with the binary blob, in fact the worst I've had recently is a couple of soft lockups that the OSS driver handles without crashing anything not to mention, there's nothing needs configuring. Apart from some optimisation issues it's a better quality driver.
                  o_0 really? that's good to know...

                    @gbeauche

                    Does it work correctly with vlc and xbmc for you? For me it does not.

                      Any news on that front? Is there any conclusion on what kind of strategy KDE will follow?

                          10.11 built correctly, installed correctly and worked correctly in Mandriva 2010.1. Celestia, buildings 2D all work as they did in 10.10. Everything done on Mandriva 2010.1 x86_64 with a Radeon 5670 triple-headed with three 1600x1200 monitors rotated 90 degrees resulting in a 3600x1200 single screen.

                            Does tessellation works in Unigine Heaven with this one? I wont update my driver again until they solve that, or add video acceleration. that, or I will switch to Nvidia. Im getting tired of waiting.

                              Tesselation seems to work.

                              In the opening scene to Heaven, the stones on the path are lumpy, when I hit F3 (which toggles tesselation) the rocks become flat (just like on my GeForce 260)

                              It appears that Tesselation is fixed at least to some degree.

                                The rpm's built for me but did not install properly on Mandriva 2011.0 x86_64(cooker)... needs to be patched just like the 10.10's.
