    Nevermind, saw that it was ArchLinux, Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, RedFlag, Slackware, SuSe, Ubuntu

      Corruption and soft-lock when I enable tearfree here (white rectangles with noise sprinkled in). Root consoles don't work but kernel reboot does.

      11.2 on Ubuntu 10.10, amd64, 4850.

      11.1 would also soft-lock, albeit without corruption.

      Any ideas?

          Works for me with my 4850, with both 11.1 and 11.2.

            Trying to find similarities:
            - 512MB or 1GB version? (Mine is 512MB)
            - Did you use --buildpkg or did you run the installer directly?

              I know you answered yourself already But for the sake of clarity: the installer has an option that builds native packages for your distribution. This is by far the best installation method (it is easier to uninstall, upgrade, avoid conflicts with other software, etc)

                1GB version. Used --buildpkg for Ubuntu, but also works with the ATI Installer on Fedora. So it's probably a VRAM issue.

                    I wish ATI would post sha &or md5.

                      Catalyst version didn't increment

                      I did --buildpkg Ubuntu/maverick and then installed with dpkg but when I run the Catalyst Control Center the Catalyst version is still listed as 10.8 in the Information section. Anyone else seeing this or have I done something wrong?
