    Hm, with this driver and bumblebee I get strange permission problems and segfaults:

    But when running optirun as root, it works.

    But with the previous OpenGL 4.3 test driver everything works normally.

        Flash is ony GPU accelerated through VDPAU under Linux AFAIK, and even then it's quirky.

          It tries to access /proc/ati/major, but only root is allowed to access that folder. Use chmod 555 as a temporary workaround.

              Took too long time

              This should have been out weeks ago.
              Kernel 3.10 support is late, now release candidates for 3.11 are out.
              AMD needs to be quicker in supporting the latest Linux kernel.

                because of 2d driver. fglrx sucks in 2d... try using opensource fglrx only gives head shacks =S

                  Thanks.
                  chmod -R a+rX /proc/ati

                    My mistake, virtualgl was at fault.
