    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 11.2 Linux Driver Released

    AMD has just issued their Catalyst 11.2 Linux driver update. It's now available from AMD.com but their release notes as usual are of little use, so here's the Phoronix scoop on this month's update...

      Does it support kernel 2.6.38 yet, or is hacking needed?

            So are you saying that they finally adopted vdpau since that is the only acceleration support in flash currently?

              "current" is a kind of word you don't understand in a therm of Future meaning.

              like in the kindergarten i talk about the future and you put your shit about "current" in this forum.

                  Tear free and full screen in Flash

                  In my hardware, HD4650, if I enable tear free video, it works great, but you watch a flash video in flash screen, you can't go back to windowed mode, you get an unresponsive white screen. You need to ctrl-alt-f2 and then ctrl-alt-f7. This unlocks the screen. The bug still occurs in 11.2, I just checked ...

                    I got curious, what does the "distribution packaging scripts" do? Is it to supply ready-to-ditribute packages for for Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo, etc?

                      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?
