    I welcome it. A major Linux distro with Plasma 5 will be nice for testing; but I'm sure most of the major issues (if any) will be handled by launch.

    And if Plasma 5 really becomes an issue, you...

    All of that works under open-source drivers (can confirm video acceleration is better on open-source), but I'm not entirely certain how feature-complete OpenCL is. For bitcoin mining, I suppose it's...

    He didn't tell anyone to do anything aside from "consider".

    There's a difference between me telling you to "drive off a cliff" vs "consider driving off a cliff" :cool:

    I have a desktop with a 200M/Xpress 1150 iGPU.

    I can no longer just "upgrade my GPU" since the PCI-E slot died or something sadly, so any and all updates are welcome with open arms :)

    (of...

    Just a heads up, but my desktop (Ubuntu 14.10) wouldn't boot after upgrading to rc2; it also affected one of the daily builds too, but can't recall when. Was fine on rc1.

    The issue is, GRUB...

    Catalyst on newer hardware is still viable for performance-reasons. And depending on other factors, it may even be recommended for stability reasons too (hence this bug).


    To be fair, I don't...

    If you need GPU performance over energy-saving, it may be ideal to use Fixed and just have the AMD GPU powering the display/outputs. Generally speaking, it's also less-problematic. You should be able...

    With the open-source driver; I've had very mixed results with my switchable graphics laptop. Most of the time, my dGPU is useless; particularly when fullscreening anything.

    What distro are you...

    I'm not a fan of promoting Windows; but at least there I can run my 7850 without the entire OS locking up randomly.

    In any case, there's still fglrx. Won't have my 7850 back till Wednesday, but...

    My only issues with openSUSE stem from packages/updating.

    With updating, I'm confused as to whether I should use zypper up or zypper dup. From what I hear, dup should never be used unless...

    Just to break the chain a bit; two computers using AMD hardware are fine with the PPA currently.

    One uses a 2400 PRO; the other is a dual-graphics 7660G + 7670M laptop (haven't tested the dGPU).

    This is happening again?

    I had my 7850 about a week ago, and I recall it being fine on 3.17 (fine as in no repeated GPU crashes; had a random GPU crash once though). Had to RMA my card again...

    There was a reasoning for this. Apparently GNOME 3.14 came out after the 14.10 feature freeze. But in any case, you're welcome to grab it from PPA if I'm not mistaken.

    In before someone throws the usual "Mir is a waste of time" and "Wayland is obviously superior" posts :cool:

    But in any case, progress is nice :) Can't wait to see it in a totally usable state;...

    There's Arch Linux, Sabayon, Manjaro Linux, and Antergos.

    Does this include variants of Ubuntu as well?

    With Ubuntu itself, I have no problems with losing 32-bit support; considering that any computer I'd run it on would likely be running a 64-bit CPU....

    Did they? I thought AMD said they just needed more time to make it public or something, but I don't really recall how that played out.

    I wouldn't mind native support for Glide. Messing with Glide wrappers on Windows is hit or miss (had quite a bad time with Diablo II a few weeks ago); not sure how well such wrappers work on Linux...

    Meanwhile I manage to walk around daily with a Nexus 7 in my pocket :p


    My first "real" smartphone was the 7" Galaxy Tab. I guess from that point on, I just became accustomed to larger displays....

    AMD apparently doesn't charge royalites for the use of FreeSync: http://support.amd.com/en-us/search/faq/220

    And also, FreeSync relies on a public standard (DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync). G-Sync...
