    The new driver is available at

    http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/am...x86.x86_64.run

    Now we finally got the AMD tag in the driver

    Guys, GNOME Shell is working like a charm. Fainly.

      That driver is pure crap for hd 5670. Same rendering problems like 11-12. Simple way to verify: gl2benchmark test 1. The same bug affects xbmc-xvba. Only when o/i infos are displayed you get a correct picture, otherwise not.

      Linux users REALY need an update, not only Win users! Replace that driver or provide 12-1a/b/c or so.

        --buildpkg Ubuntu/oneiric does not properly build the package for me and am not bothered to finding out why right now. Anyone?

          In case you use my script it has got an -u option to use updated packageing from phorogit.

            No issues here, building went fine on Ubuntu 11.10 (x86), I wasn't presented with any errors and installation went OK. It could be that they have fixed the issue and provided an updated download so you could try downloading it again.

              I'm wondering why it is so hard to make a pure 64bit driver.
              This not only still depends on 32bit libs, but now it even needs libstdc++6:i386 to build on x86_64

                For me it's working not so well. With Fedora 16 (latest updates) and this driver, I got many gnome-shell restarts at the moment. I'm watching this, because I got more restarts of gnome-shell even on my notebook with the open-source driver since yesterday.

                  Core i7 mux-less radeon 6470M

                  I haven't yet tried 12.1
                  Does anyone know if this now works with muxless Intel/AMD combination?

                    This is definitely one of the best releases in a while. But I still have an issue with gnome-shell, where moving windows across the desktop feels laggish. There is no lagging in dash animations (such as switching workspaces) or anywhere else, only with moving windows across the screen. I get the same behavior in compiz if I enable the "Sync to VBlank" in CompizConfig (OpenGl plugin).

                    Apart from that and some random gnome-shell crashes, everything works (including multiple monitor support, yay)!

                      This seems to be one of a the best releases in a while. I still have a small issue with gnome-shell/mutter though. Dragging windows across the workspace is lagging badly but dash animations (such as switching workspaces) don't seem laggish at all. I get a similar issue in compiz if I enable the "Sync to VBlank" option in CompizConfig (OpenGl plugin), but I couldn't find an option like that in mutter.

                      Other than that an a few random gnome-shell crashes, this release looks really great. I even managed to get multiple monitor to work!

                        Add "export CLUTTER_VBLANK=none" to your .profile file (home folder).

                          This fixed my issue, thank you!

                            +1

                            Why do we have to install 32bit libraries to use the driver on 64bit system? Is this the case on 64bit Windows, too?

                              Must be a joke or? 64 bit win has compat libs for 32 bit of course, so you need everything twice. Just not the kernel part of the drivers, but the userspace one. Thats why the 64 bit install images are bigger than the 32 bit ones by a huge amount. Thats not because of slightly bigger executeables. But 16 bit support was dropped on 64 bit win.
