  • AMD Catalyst 13.9 Final

    Download: http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/am...x86.x86_64.zip

    This is based on Catalyst 13.6 Beta (NOT 13.8) with more fixes. So Xserver 1.14 support, GLX_EXT_buffer_age extension support, UVD/OpenGL/Vsync fixes against the last final driver, Catalyst 13.4.

    Since this driver isn't based on 13.8 I wonder if fixes listed on this page http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles...etaDriver.aspx also apply.

      Well, given that the 13.8 branch was bugged as hell for me with both opengl and xvba (A8-5500 APU) and 13.6 was fine, im optimistic.
      But lets test it first...

      BTW how did you find it? It doesnt appear on AMD s site.

          Crap. Doesnt install on kernel 3.11. Can anyone patch the damn thing? I could install 13.6 with the patch on 3.11, this doesnt work...

            Use that one - we ship it in OpenELEC: https://raw.github.com/OpenELEC/Open...fs_calls.patch

              What is the thing that changes on amd drivers/kernels that it cannot be used with newer kernels?

                Thanks fritsch, compiles fine.

                It seems the method of creating files in /proc has changed in 3.10 and amd is still making drivers that have not adapted. To linux 3.10! (13.8 beta had, but now 13.9 has not)

                  Sometimes, it is not really obvious how their "streams" work, also beta testers don't really know why they test 150 stream and a 180 stream is released with other fixes and reintroduced bugs.

                    After I installed this driver, Ubuntu 12.04 Unity switched to 2D mode, but i can't figure out why:
                    1. Xorg.0.log - no errors.
                    2. OpenGL works OK (tested with glxgears).
                    3. "unity_support_test -p" says all is ok.

                      also check if the output of "glxinfo" shows direct rendering as yes

                        its because you're using AMD graphics drivers.

                        Though honestly I wouldn't have a clue why thats happening.

                          Ubuntu 12.04, 7950

                          Doesn't work at all for me. In the similar way as 13.8 betas. Random corruption when X first launches, hangs and crushes. Session loading fails after login. Drivers up to 13.6 at least support 2d.

                          I'm tired of AMD.

                              It's different shit every time, and if you want a more specific answer than that, you'll probably find yourself in a debate about stable API's, burden of maintenance, etc. http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Docum...i_nonsense.txt

                              The AMD devs are so busy producing high-quality changelogs and intuitive driver version schemes that they don't have time to patch for the latest kernel.
