    I have asked the Catalyst folks to post the launch-time Linux driver that was produced for board mfgs to include in the box. Hopefully should be up by Monday attached to a KB article.

      Man what a pathetic bunch of whiners.

      Seriously guys people here should look at how far AmD has come with Linux drivers since buying up ATI. They are far more open about their hardware compared to NVidia, supporting both closed and open source development.

      It is far better that AMD is making a continual and paced effort to improve their sift ware stack instead of forcing us to wait for ever for a "perfect" driver. What is disgusting about some of the comments here is that Linux was built on the concept of releasing early and often. That often lead to some extremely buggy software. No one complains about buggy open source and the sometimes extended development times to correct those bugs.

      Let's have a little perspective here.

        I got that bug again where amdcccle / control center shows an older version number on the Information page. It says 11.6.. :/

        how do you fix that again?

          1. Shut down X
          2. Delete /etc/ati/amdpcsdb
          3. Restart X

          ... IIRC

              Hi,

              What do you mean by "works"? Are you using both without having to disable one or the other from the BIOS? What kernel version are you using? OMG I hope what I'm hoping for is true (croxxing fingers).

              Thanks!

                That works, thanks!

                  Well, Xserver doesn't crash on startup with fglrx installed as it used to do before, and I can use AMD card with them. I can switch graphic cards from catalyst control panel, but for some reason, there is no direct rendering when I switch to Intel. But I realy don't care, while AMD card works with fglrx without a problem. Kernel is 3.2 on that laptop. And btw, in BIOS there is only option to turn switchable graphics on/off.
                  It is not switching like in win7, you need to logout/login after switching from catalyst control panel.

                    Downgrade xserver until the bug is fixed.
