    flicker with driver 8.4

    I hope, that with the ati-driver 8.5 the flickers with opengl-applications find an end...

      signature="e7d56ac97bfc562e683610e1a87e1b7e:dffb5efe4dd16616580522d9c9532b48d5e35af838d1177a211624d1984f2d48:83b30cab4e99304b5c5274d09e482a48d2ed5afc49ce32170b0f25d29a1c2f4683e00ffa4e9d30165b0e74d099492c1fd5e45bff49c8321f510e24879a1a2f46"
      
      sed -i 's/\(signature=\).*/\1"'$signature'"/' ati-driver-installer-8-5-x86.x86_64.run
      this doesn't work for me

                Or just put that long ugly number in /etc/ati/signature after installing it.

                  Release notes seem to be lengthy.

                  "Support for video playback on the second head in dual head mode is now available."

                  Wasn't this a very old bug they seem to have fixed now?

                    An updated driver package has been posted; watermark should be gone now.

                    Please navigate through http://www.amd.com in case the URL changed.

                      This is a really, really bad update for me. http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1139 explains why.

                      Anyone else have this sort of issue?
