    Seems to have a driver date of August 29th. The Windows driver has to be modified to support other hardware; not sure if the Linux driver is the same ordeal.

    - Supports kernel 3.14+ as-is (installs fine on 3.16.1); firegl_public.c shows:

    Code:
    KCL_TYPE_Uid ATI_API_CALL KCL_GetEffectiveUid(void)
    {
    #ifdef CONFIG_UIDGID_STRICT_TYPE_CHECKS
        return __kuid_val(current_euid());
    #else
    #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(3,14,00)
        return __kuid_val(current_euid());
    #else
    #ifdef current_euid
        return current_euid();
    #else
        return current->euid;
    #endif // current_euid
    #endif // LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(3,14,00)
    #endif // CONFIG_UIDGID_STRICT_TYPE_CHECKS
    }
    - Does not seem to support other hardware other than the R9 285 (I get "No supported adapters detected" on 7660G + 7670M hardware); someone on the Windows driver said it worked on their R9 290.

      Correction on this. If you have the already-configured xorg.conf, the driver works fine. You can't generate another xorg.conf though on unsupported hardware.

      So if you've installed a previous version of fglrx and didn't remove xorg.conf, and then installed this driver, you'd be fine

      Here's some version info:



      Code:
      OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
      OpenGL renderer string: AMD Radeon HD 7600M Series
      OpenGL version string: 4.4.13083 Compatibility Profile Context 14.30.1005

        Another option is to copy the control file from an older release over. This will get you past the unsupported hardware problem.

        Extract the driver, cp fglrx-xxxx/common/etc/ati/control

        This driver does not work with xorg 1.16. "libglx.so undefined symbol Loadextension"

          Unfortunatly this driver doesn't work with my 280X on Ubuntu 14.04.
          I first installed the fglrx driver in Software Center, and then installed this driver. (because i got the unsupported device message also). After a reboot, nothing happens. Black screen, can not even get into the terminal to fix it.
          I am probably doing something wrong here, but i just cant seem to get the 280X working in Ubuntu without the 100% fan issue, screen tearing, terrible 3d-performance et cetera. I think i may have to give it up and buy an NVidia card instead.
