    I happily switched to the FOSS driver in early Feb.
    Yes it is fixed and already uploaded to Debian.

      Catalyst 12.3 is two weeks away anyway, so that should sort out proper HD 7xxx support in time for Ubuntu 12.04.

        It doesn't compile against Linux 3.2. Be warned

          Here it works fine, a build log would be nice.

            I'll retest it tomorrow evening with Linux 3.2.9 and post build log.

              In fact, I think that 12.2 was ready two or three weeks ago... when they sent the windows version to be certified but not released till today... (as the official windows version). So I hope to see a lot of work for HD 7xxx in the 12.3!

                    No idea of what is new, or if it support HD7xxx... I will test now
                    This driver seems to badly break on Linux Mint (Ubuntu-based) 12, with an AMD FirePro M7740 chip. The screen was completely garbled. I couldn't even get to a (visible) virtual terminal using Ctrl-Alt-F1. I had to reboot, and from a recovery shell uninstall Catalyst 12.2 and reinstall fglrx.

                    I'm getting pretty sick of AMD drivers not working on my laptop.

                      I am guessing that this means fglrx still does not work with Gnome3 and it's derivatives. I gave up waiting long ago and switched to Gallium. Gallium is OK if you are not a gamer, but I would still like to have the best power management. Waiting some more. Ho Hum. I have built a new machine and for the first time in ten years it is Intel. Why? Apart from anything else, because I am a Gnome3 user and I want a stable desktop without weird and wacky menu tearing. I was patient for a long time, but forever is too much to expect.
