AMD Catalyst 13.6 Linux Graphics Driver Beta Released
Sounds like a typical vsync problem, have you made sure it's disabled in-game and in CCC? (also did you delete /etc/ati/amdpcsdb with Xorg shut down before upgrading?)
No such issue here, although FPS tank in WINE with vsync on.
(I've also noticed that I can't click on buttons in TF2's menu, actually I can only navigate with the arrow keys, but then again a quick googling points towards a TF2/old code bug.)
No it is not. Always before the installation new one I uninstalled older one by sudo dpkg -P ... so there is no chance to have the configuration files associated with this packages in /etc. This is not a matter of vsync ... how could I have vsync enabled and such that showed me Xonotic 270 FPS [60 Hz monitor refresh] ... maximum standard on E-350 it was 120 [all effects except AA turned on to maximum and I've got full liquidity - here is 'my kernel' - line Brazos - specially optimized for the newer AMD - config level and already in the process of compilation]. By the way, builds four lines of kernels: K8, atom, i7 and Brazos - look in goggles: ext73, NeteXt'73 and my youtube channel: ext73.
[*] There is a slight chance the bug has simply gone with XServer 1.14,
but I don't think so as the issue was not present with XServer 1.13 with intel IGPs.
So I can't tell for sure if it has been actively fixed.
Anyhow, great to see it's gone.
Just updated to the beta drivers (w/ Xorg 1.14 finally) in Arch Linux (using the catalyst-test package), and sleep is now totally broken for me in KDE. Basically, if I close my laptop lid, it goes into sleep mode, but when I open it again, I just get a blank back lit screen. Didn't happen with any of the previous drivers...
Only it is not a matter of the compositor ... I use KDE, and here both in 3d for fullscreen windows and not ... is the same ... at 13.3 beta3 is ideally ... with the beta2 13.3, 13.4 and 13.6 beta are such problems.
I had this problem on debian but not slackware. On debian I fixed it by editing the /etc/default/grub file so the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line looked like this...
"nomodeset radeon.modeset=0 vga=792" was added by me.
Then run "sudo update-grub" and reboot.
Unfortunately this does not work - at least in my case. This is obviously a mistake OpenGL driver - who appeared in the driver version 13.3 beta 2 - and then fixed in 13.3 beat3 and again has been "intensified" in 13.4 and 13.6 beta
