    Here you go... https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=29111
    It's just the kernel module though. I'm with you on trying other distros other than Ubuntu.

      What if such a patch doesn't exist? What if the incompatibility is in the X interface which cannot be patched? I've had to wait up to a month and a half for fglrx to catch up with Arch (if you upgrade, X gets broken). Hence the pain.

      Ubuntu doesn't suffer from this because it's an official fglrx target. The open-source drivers don't suffer from this because they are developed in lockstep with X and the kernel.

        That sounds like you're trying to upgrade all packages beyond fglrx supported versions. There's nothing to stop you staying with versions fglrx supports.

        Getting back on topic...I did try Ubuntu with a HTPC (atom + ion combo), and all the default Ubuntu stuff just bogged it down. I did try slim things down a bit, but in the end went to Gentoo (personal favourite, that's all) to start from slim and only put on what's needed for a HTPC (no gnome, kde, etc). Also, XBMC compiled from source is much zippier than the Ubuntu binaries, so even if someone's using Ubuntu, I heartily recommend compiling XBMC from source for a HTPC. As I mentioned, this was with an Atom, but I imagine things will be much the same story with a Fusion system.

          Linux Performance vs another OS ??

          I thought this was meant to be showing Linux performance not APU performance ?

          is their any Comparison to show what FreeBSD / Linux / Windows would be ?

          I am wanting to get the Trinity / FM2 for my AIO box but unless I know FreeBSD will be able to make use of it I might just have to build another Intel Box

          ( using FreeBSD for its ZFS )

          but with Current ATI Driver support I am a little Concerned with how it will take on an APU !!
