  • Evergreen cards are supported, on the supported distros (RH, SUSE, Ubuntu) and are running on a number of other distro versions. Fedora 13 is not one of those supported distros today.

    I'm not sure why you are lumping Fedora 13 (not supported) and Ubuntu 10.04 (supported) together.

    If you are planning to use Fedora 13 as your primary system in the near future (ie while it is still "bleeding edge" in terms of included component versions) then you would probably be happer with HD4xxx than with Evergreen today.

        if "soon" includes the past, then I'd say so.

        see my post here:
        http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23635

        or are you talking about a different kind of rotation?

          Is there any support for rotating the screen coming anytime soon to linux? (when using pivot lcd's for example). Is it planned for or are ati at least working on it?

          Can you explain why this support is still lacking in fglrx?
          Is it? It's available here in ccc. Just tried it and it seems to be working fine with HD 3200.

            I can answer you. I figured Ubuntu 10.04 is somewhat of a 'bleeding edge' version of Debian (my apologies to Debian users - no insult intended...). I checked @ distrowatch and side-by-side, a good deal of the packages are at similar states or versions. Red Hat is the distro (in the list) that may be considered more 'stable' but Suse and Ubuntu have 'bleeding edge' versions. There's no indication in the 'supported distros' of specific version, right?

            Anyway, I'm still considering a HD4xxx card (4770) since one is at $80 currently with rebate. I'm comparing to Nvidia 9800GT since they're the same price. HD5000 card is preferred but pricey and only has 'iffy/depends' type of support.

            Thanks for answering my questions, bridgman! Much obliged!

            Sorry for temporarily diverting from the 'rotating screen' topic, guys!

              Well I almost guessed you would say so but thanks for the reply anyway.

              • I wanted to broach a subject again that was brought up a couple pages back but not answered. Bugs filed through http://ati.cchtml.com are still sent to the following addresses: atilinuxbugsunassigned@ati.com, raphael@neo-tix.com, mtippett@ati.com

                I'm pretty sure Matthew Tippett is no longer with AMD/ATi. Is anybody actually getting / reading bugs filed through the http://ati.cchtml.com site?

                • Yes, a fairly large list of ATI/AMD staff receive notifications.

                    The 64bit and 32bit Catalyst 10.5 releases have some pretty severe OpenGL regressions. These regressions cause crashing under Applications run through Cedega / WineX, and in the native Linux title QuakeLive, severe rendering errors as demonstrated in these pictures:

                      oh good. I've been poking City of Heroes players to post to the Catalyst Crew Feedback and ati.cchtml.com pages and had a panic attack that I was directing them to the wrong site(s)
