    yes. the version numbers seemed to have forgotten. i can see the right opengl string with fglrxinfo and the right X bits looking at whats loaded in xorg.0.log - but catalyst control centre still thinks im on 11.8

        Retracting part of previous rant about lock ups on resume

        After installing xf86 drivers the problem persists which means it can only be due to the upgrade to kernel 3.1.5 and cannot be due to fglrx.

        At least with the free drivers I've got back full screen flash and KMS though...

          Version problems

          Guys to all of you getting an older version at amdcccle of catalyst than the one you have just installed do this:

          -Uninstall the driver once
          -Type as root: rm -r /etc/ati
          -Reboot
          -Reinstall the driver via any method you 'd like auto or package

          Just remember to open amdcccle and reapply your settings cause they will be reverted to the default ones!

            Hangs on resume on both drivers...

            ...sounds like there are problems with ACPI. And those are usually fixed with BIOS updates.

              Unfortunately, I gave up on my BIOS provider (http://www.phoenix.com/) and their 3rd party BIOS updater (http://biosagentplus.com) which are needlessly limiting their flashing tools to Windows platforms (that doesn't bode well for running Linux on top of their BIOS eh)... will try looking into it again though sometime.

                I did not had /etc/ati at all.

                But uninstalling. Turning off. Turning on with recovery mode. Installing from console. Did the job

                    I'm installing fglrx 11.12 (fglrx_8.920-0ubuntu1_i386.deb) generated from installer.
                    Kubuntu 11.10.

                    Help! (I do not even know what to ask google )
                    In fact you have 11.12 but CCC fail to update information about version in configuration file. Next time you may want to do that:
                    amdconfig --del-pcs-key=LDC,ReleaseVersion
                    amdconfig --del-pcs-key=LDC,Catalyst_Version

                    Don't forget to report this issue to AMD:

                      Ati Radeon HD6970m

                      Hello, I would like to ask if the Graphic Card AMD ATI RADEON HD6970M is supported in this driver, as I read 6800 i suppose no...
                      Actually I have debian Mint installed and with fglrx drivers I am able to use quite well the card (even termal control seems to work better now as the fan is not always at 100%)
                      but without any reason sometimes computer freeze...only the R-SIST buttons works...so I have to reboot all the times...

                      Thank you in advance, since I have this card I am not able to use linux properly

                                Yes I know. What does that have to do with AMD Catalyst?
