      I dont use compiz, but at least the rendering artefacts are fixed with hd 5670. you still need to patch the driver for 3.2.8+/3.3. The mentioned patch for 3.4rc2 in

        Compiles and works fine here without any patches. Slackware 13.37, Kernel 3.2.16, HD 5670. I Never had problems compiling for the 3.2 series of kernel at all. YMMV

          Can somebody get a dmesg output when the modul is loading?
          Is this the very same version currently shipped with ubuntu precise since approx 4 weeks?

          For the record, precise in repository 8.96 version output:
          Code:
          [fglrx] module loaded - fglrx 8.96.4 [Mar 12 2012] with 1 minors

            I was going to install it in my work computer, but something strange happened:
            right now if you go to the webpage it shows again version 12.3... and the file for 12.4 was removed, so the direct link does not work.

            (I can upload 12.4 somewhere if people are interested, as I have it at home).


            Anybody knows what happened? some serious bug they just discovered?

              Most probably, yes. I don't see any other reason.

                  You can still download it from some other sites, like ComputerBase: http://www.computerbase.de/downloads...-linux-driver/

                  Also, AMD still offers the Windows 12.4 for download: http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloa...n_win7-64.aspx

                        I get "DKMS part of installation failed" installing them. I never had this problem on previous releases.

                          @Rallos Zek

                          Because you use 64 bit, thats a 32 bit only bug

                          @v4mpiro

                          Because you use 32 bit and kernel 3.2.8/3.3+.
