    According to other sources the 12.8 driver does indeed work with kernel series 3.4

    "No more xserver 1.12 crash for amd64 and patches for kernel 3.4" is what the other source has said

        lol no problem xD in other news I posted the problem on the amd game forum with the correct link and they have updated the amd site some time ago don't know when xD so it now points the the .zip link

        Also anyone on ubuntu 12.10 there is a 3.4 series kernels available here --> http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ while it does mean downgrading your kernel it does mean you can enjoy the AMD graphics update xD

            lol I know that xD however I meant by default without any messing around needed

            If it don't work without patching then I don't like it xD im just annoyed that amd haven't supported 3.5 kernel by now lol

              Thanks for figuring out that minor link change, strange mistake they made, and stranger that they still haven't seemed to get around to fixing it. Does anyone who has this installed notice any changes (improvements/regressions)? I just installed, and it seems to be no different from 12.6.

                it's built upon the same 8.98 stream as 12.6 so apart from maybe 1%-2% performance increase in some areas lol that's if there are any, the only upgrades are the No more xserver 1.12 crash for amd64 and patches for kernel 3.4 lol So unless you really like to be up to date it's no different than 12.6 lol or if ofc you have xserver 1.12 or want 3.4 kernel however for me it seems as though the animations are a tad faster not very noticeable though lol

                  There's nothing besides a few fixes as they have been working on the 9.00 branch for quite some time now. Hopefully coming next month.

                    shamefull

                    I was looking for support for more recent stable kernel versions also.
                    They can do this in an agnostic way which doesn't require editing their headers/source everytime the version number changes.
                    I guess they feel they need to "validate" support on a case by case basis as budgets permit ?
