      for me it is working fine. 2 monitors in a 7970. But I use gnome-shell classic with no effects. (I do not like composite effects...)

              i'm glad they're fixing a lot of issues, however, i personally don't take advantage of anything they've covered. i'd really like it if they got it to work with the latest xserver, i'm tired of telling yaourt to ignore packages.

                  Same problem here. Don't worry though, they'll probably fix it around the time 16.8 is released or so.

                    17.3

                    where hd7xxx series are legacy products...

                    what a easy way to resolve bugs and problems, isn't it?

                      Quit trolling you know damn well that there is not one driver in the linux world that has all those 3 features.

                        Really? Which card do you have? I only had problems with the 12.2 release all the others for me had no problems with that.

                          I can't talk for this driver version yet, but my laptops been unable to wake up from sleep with half the catalyst drivers I've use. Even when i get a version that seems to work most of the time it still fails on a significant number of wake ups. Fails enough that i'd ideally have to disable sleep or risk having to forcible restart my laptop and loose unsaved work. I've had the laptop in question for a few years now and have experienced the problem in numerous distros. My cards a ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4350

                            and does the wake up from sleep work with the default Radeon driver (not Catalyst)? On my desktop computer with AsRock motherboard neither works (maybe because of my cheap motherboard). On my notebook with Radeon IGP 3200 the default driver works (have no idea if Catalyst 12.4 would work too).

                              If you have got a system that never resumes correctly try a better psu. It is not necessarly needed that you have to use a stronger psu, just try a different one. I had a noname 500w psu connected to a core 2 system and it never resumed correctly. replaced that by a 370w bequiet and it worked. Also updateing the bios can help. I had several month issues with resume with a q67 board booted in efi mode, but mbr mode worked until a bios update fixed it. So try that as well - if you think its the gfx card: use a different one. I literally have got a stack of gfx cards (mainly low power ones) so i can try different ones in case of problems or when i want to debug specific cases. If you have got only 1 card thats of course not optimal...
