      It doesn't.

      Also, it works now with kwin direct GL if you override the default through an environment variable, but it's only usable without vsync or tear free desktop on, else it is really slow.

        Suspend bug fixed with e-350 APU?

        Just wondering if anyone has tried it out.

        Come on AMD!

        Thanks

          Tried it out.

          Kernel panic with 3.1 based kernels.
          Compiz performance is still a slide show with Juniper hardware... More like a flip-book really

          Sigh

            Suspend worked great with my AMD Fusion E-350 on Ubuntu with Catalyst 11.8, I just upgraded to Catalyst 11.10 which runs great but I haven't tried suspend yet.

              dammit my arch setup isn't updating all the way because of this xserver 1.11 issue. good to know about the kwin stuff though.

                Anyone tried it on Gnome-Shell yet? Do we finally have a working fglrx with Gnome-Shell??

                  Suspend working/failing seems to be more often a matter of BIOS than anything else. My cousin has a nVIDIA gpu that is supposed to be all roses according to what you read around these forums and it doesn't suspend/hibernate, not even in Windows. My AMD system with HD4200 IGP suspends/hibernates all the time perfectly using FGLRX and Radeon OSS drivers.

                  What I'm trying to say is that if your system doesn't suspend properly, it probably never will.

                    Argh, I hoped xorg 1.11 support would be included in this release. I just hope 11.11 gets released sooner next month.

                      I've tested the 11.10 with my radeon hd 3450 / p8400 under Archlinux.
                      It seems smoother, really. I can read a HD movie and use the kwin cube effect without noticing a frame rate slow down, there's no tearing, and it seems reliable.

                        Why not ignore updating the xorg packages?

                          Sometime ago I had troubles installing 11.9 manually(it build installed but black screen happened, back to opencource), so i went to Synaptic to see if 11.10 is there yet. I guess its not, there is nothing new in changelog. But what caught my attention was fglrx-updates package. Does anyone know the difference between fglrx-updates vs fglrx in Ubuntu ?

                            Thanks but whats the magic "environment variable"?

                            Thanks

                              Their Linux release date is basically decided by Microsoft since they won't release a Linux build until Microsoft decides to "WHQL" certify this month's buid. (Basically a meaningless sign off that the DRM still works and a chance to make it unaffordable for smaller organizations to make Windows drivers.)
