    Hi, I installed the catalyst 12.6 beta drivers on my linux mint 13 maya system, using a radeon 7750 with hdmi, dvi-i and display port. extending the workspace to the hdmi and dvi works fine, but the monitor with the display port (using a display port to dvi adaptor) is not receiving a signal from the card. When I boot and post, I can see the bios bootup, but then goes black while the other two monitors are able to display the linux mint workspace. I'll look further.

      For me it was a simple matter of copying the control and signature files from the 12.4 release to /etc/ati. Even easier than following the instructions to the letter.

        Or download it. Every way is working anyway.

          I just want to say after almost a week, that they finally fixed "ASIC hang happened" which in my case was causing hangs during going sleep (not wakeup - it always worked). I'm using HD 5770 on Debian Sid and I'm so happy with full working sleep/wakeup after almost a year of struggle with that.

            Any previsions for a new beta driver with Debian amd64 xorg 1.12 support?

              It's working for me under Fedora 17 64-bit with Xorg 1.12 and kernel 3.3.7-1.fc17.x86_64.

              It's also quite snappier on my AMD E-350, very happy with this release so far.

              Just don't update to the 3.4.0-1 kernel and you'll be fine. Otherwise it's either go back to 3.3.7-1 or use Gallium. That was my mistake and kmod-catalyst is taking a while.

                It seems that there is no signature inside the driver install script.

                Anybody managed to remove/hide it?

                Thanks
                What's your distro?

                I use Fedora 17 GNOME 64-bit on Kernel 3.3.7.

                #!/bin/sh
                DRIVER=/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
                for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
                sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
                done

                Save as fixwatermark.sh
                chmod +x to make it executable
                su -c 'sh ./fixwatermark.sh'

                then log out and back in.

                That worked for me.

                Again, this is on kernel 3.3.7 for Fedora 17 64-bit.

                  Driving me nuts on my Fusion powered netbook. fglrx does everything better than the open source driver (power management and HD video playback etc) EXCEPT I cant suspend the machine without it coming back up with a blank screen. very frustrating.
                  Same here, but that is with all distros for me.
                  My hardware is A6-3400M x4 1.2~2.4 (scaled) with 6 GB RAM, 600 HDD, Radeon HD 6520G.

                    using the beta on my 7850 with the watermark patch

                    performance is about the same, but it does fix a texture rendering problem in vdrift
                    also not compatible with kernel 3.4.x but there might be hacks for that too ...

                      Fianally a driver that doesn't crash my laptop (E350, HD6310) on suspend/resume! But it took AMD over a year to fix this bug and that's really unacceptable. I had a crash with serious graphic corruption though when changing the backligt so it's not stable enough yet but I'm looking forward to the final version!

                        Hello,

                        Could you please write the details about suspend/resume.
                        Did you just uninstall the old driver and simply install this one or you had to make some additional changes e.g. pm-utils configs or xorg.conf ?
                        what is your linux distribution, krenel version, xorg version and so on.
                        There are a lot of poeple with C60 cpu that waiting for the suspend/resume solution too, but somehow this beta crushes on resume for me too.

                        Thanks in advance

                          I installed 12.6 on a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64 with the latest updates. The kernel is version 3.2.0-26-generic and xserver is 1.11.4-0ubuntu10.2.

                          I didn't use jockey so I didn't have a previous version of fglrx installed, and I didn't do any manual changes to any files.

                          I just downloaded the 12.6 installer from AMD, installed the build dependencies which if I remember correctly are execstack, dh-modaliases, debhelper, devscripts and build-essential, used the installer to build ubuntu packages which I installed with dpkg -i and finally I ran apt-get install -f to fix the dependencies before rebooting.

                          Sleep/resume works now but compiz crashed once and I have the annoying "unsupported hardware" watermark.

                          You can get my package here btw:
                          http://murargatan.bounceme.net/~simon/fglrx/
                          Use at your own risk of course!
