    Phoronix: AMD Puts Out Catalyst 11.4 With X Server 1.10 Support

    While X.Org Server 1.10 has been out since February, AMD missed supporting it until it came time for Ubuntu 11.04 and then late last month they ended up dropping a Catalyst 11.4 pre-release to Ubuntu Natty users. Today is the official release date for Catalyst 11.4 Linux to anyone interested. This contains back-ported X.Org Server 1.10 support in order to function with Ubuntu 11.04, Fedora 16, Arch Linux, etc...

    I bought NV GT440 today after being pissed off about the drivers/GLSL/Portal2. Anyone interested in buying HD4650? It works with Xorg 1.10 now

        The link only takes me to 11.3 driver.

        Using the driver finder on amd.com also only shows 11.3.

          This link works.

          I'm wondering if this driver + Gnome 3 shell works fine together. I will try it under Fedora 15. I hope nomodeset is not required to boot it, otherwise it's clear that it would use gnome 3 fallback mode.

            That option is useless for fglrx, you have to blacklist radeon anyway.

              ah ok. Well gnome shell + Catalyst 11.4 doesn't work decent with gnome shell. Much graphical errors. I still have Catalyst installed but later I will deinstall it and switch to gnome shell+default drivers. Now in gnome 3 fallback mode

                  Do you have gnome shell + Catalyst 11.4 working, without corruption? If not then what makes you so sure this is a user error and not a catalyst bug?

                  It's not like he's the only one having problems with catalyst + gnome-shell, google it, there's also a bug about it at the unofficial AMD Linux bugzilla.

                    First of all when a user reports fallback mode, then 3d is not active at all. Check fglrxinfo, it wont be correct.

                      I think you have not tried gnome-shell + catalyst. Please try yourself first and then comment.

                        yes but I used gnome shell + Catalyst driver shortly. There is a option below System Settings-> Sytem info to enable fallback mode even with 3D acceleration.

                            $ fglrxinfo
                            display: :0.0 screen: 0

                            I'm not sure, but I think I read a while ago that there are also troubles with Gnome shell if proprietary NVIDIA drivers are used.

                              hm no, I'm probably wrong there. Just found two short reports of users where it works with proprietary NVIDIA drivers.
