    Well, its almost usable on my ATI4670 with Gnome Shell after enabling "tear free" desktop. Just a few graphical glitches every now and then. I really want to use FGLRX because I play a lot of Wine games; however, its back to the OSS drivers until catalyst 11.10 comes out.

      Unfortunately, sleep is still broken on my dm1z. Back to the oss drivers which work correctly (if only they had better power saving on laptops...)
      see? I also tough that that wasn't kms infact vt switching isn't very fast... but this mean that we can use plymouth now?

        Firefox now crashes instead of rendering upside down and backwards in OpenGL mode (which admittedly, you must force since they do warn that AM Catalyst is a broken driver, full of bugs)
        ooo wow... i'm so happy about that as a kde user (ironic),,

          Debian testing/unstable

          So there is no way to get 11.9 working in debian testing/unstable? I am using sid and was waiting for AMD to release a functional driver for 1.11.1 xorg-core.
          Maybe someone is using Gallium to get even basic 3d acceleration under X in similar situation?
          Thanks

            Just updated on Arch Linux, KDE4. No changes seen really. I rememember reading that some problems with were going to be fixed that helped with some problems in Minecraft (I think some incompatibilities in the JNI with FGLRX). Oh well...

              Hmm... So far I've gotten Spiral Knights to crash 3 times in 45 minutes with fglrx 11.9 and Oracle's JRE
              Code:
              #
              # A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

              Current thread (0x00007fc234aa8800):  JavaThread "AWT-EventQueue-0" [_thread_in_native, id=20114, stack(0x00007fc22c43c000,0x00007fc22c53d000)]
              
              siginfo:si_signo=SIGSEGV: si_errno=0, si_code=1 (SEGV_MAPERR), si_addr=0x0000000000000000
              I've switched back to OpenJDK for now (Which has the bad habit of randomly hardlocking the computer when loading maps... Rock or hard place... yay?)
              It might have been the same issue with 11.8 but I never got to test that version much since it made the interface flicker every now and then. Flickering is still there with 11.9 though happen much more seldom. 11.7 was fine.

              Then I launched Guild Wars through Wine 1.3.28 and 5 minutes in:
              Code:
              *--> Crash <--*
              Exception: c0000005 
              Memory at address 00000000 could not be written
              App: Gw.exe
              ProgramId: 1
              Build: 34484
              When: 9/30/2011 22:34:38
              Flags: 0
              First time I've ever gotten that.

              Is it me or it's the same error? (I've run memtest btw, no issue)

                  It's fixed in Catalyst 11.8.

                      DaemonFC,

                      I have the exact same problem with Fedora 15 and KDE 4.6. I completely removed the 11.8 fglrx modules before installing 11.9. I reinstalled 11.8.
