    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.

                  To build the fgrlx module (both 12.1 and 12.2) against all 3.2 kernels >= 3.2.8 and all 3.3 kernels >= 3.3-rc4, you need the patch in this thread:

                    I forgot to mention that the patch is needed only for 32 bit kernels. 64 bit kernels are not affected.

                      intel

                      I have to agree with grege about Intel. I am tired of waiting for AMD to get their drivers working. Switch to Intel and nVIDIA. I have been an AMD user for years and they only seem to really support Windows. My system is a Toshiba A6-3400M with a Radeon HD 6520G and have had issues from day one on Linux. KDE seems to be fine though on the video where as gnome-shell crashes a lot with graphical glitches and slowdowns (slowdowns fixed with CLUTTER_VBLANK=none). On Debian based distros (not Debian itself) seem to suffer from not detecting my keyboard and touchpad therefore they don't work. Sometimes it does which doesn't make any sense. Fedora has no problems on that matter. All distros testing Suspend/resume results in me having to pull the battery because it puts my laptop into a coma. I've had the best luck with Fedora 16 64-bit KDE. Still waiting for kmod to support the newest kernel and it'll be fine.

                          Catalyst 12.2 monitor options...

                          Hi phoronixers!
                          I want to know about monitor configuration before install the Catalyst 12.2 because my installed 12.1 version is doing "its job" very well. But, sadly, I haven't the monitor configuration options in my catalyst manager. As you can see in the attached image below. (the green mark, or the left listed options)

                          I wonder to use a secondary monitor and configure it to be a different (secondary) desktop, using Catalyst Manager. I have a new hybrid graphic laptop and before it I had a Radeon HD2400 laptop's graphic card. And with my old, I could configure the external monitor using Catalyst Manager.

                            Still without Display Manager in Catalyst 12.2

                            So guys, I couldn't wait for response so I decide to install the new CCC 12.2 in my system and for my surprise it doesn't "fix" the problem for missing "Display Manager"!!!!

                            So, I wonder to know if one of you have the solution of it... I've googled it and I can't find anything about! I'm using the crap monitor manager software natively from Ubuntu 11.10. But it doesn't offer me all funcionalities like CCC older versions (in my old HD2400) offered me a time ago. And now, with this hybrid graphic card (as described in last reply: HD3000 + HD6770M) it just doesn't appear!!!!

                            As you can see in the image below, the 12.2 still without Display Manager:



                            Help me, please! It drives me crazy!!!

                              Well, I'm not very sure which kind of switchable graphics you're using (is it switchable by mux/BIOS or is it muxless?). If it's muxless (like your case seems to be), the graphics framebuffer is done by your Intel IGP, and not your ATI graphics card... It'd be useful if you posted here the output of your Xorg.0.log, lspci/lsmod and dmesg... Maybe someone here at the forums can help you...

                              Cheers

                              p.s.: I don't know much more about AMD switchable graphics, sorry...
