    Because no one can fix issues in a proprietary driver but the official developers, for a start

    To be fair to ATI, they didn't do the hype. That was Michael/the rest of the Phoronix staff.

    But, yes, if they actually communicated with us, it would be good.

    The fix is simple - there's a typo in your instruction... you're missing an underscore between
    xorg-driver-fglrx and 8.42 - it should all be one word, representing that particular deb file.

    The last I've seen of any discussion on the nvnews forums, which actually get nVidia employees on them, was a suggestion that a driver would be released "in a few weeks" - that was about a week ago.

    The big deal comes from community trust. nVidia has a track record of being supportive with Linux drivers, and has for many years. Because of this, people are generally prepared to trust them to...

    Oh, come now. There's a difference between "disappointed because their hardware doesn't work" and "full of hatred". Hyperbolic mischaracterisation of dissent doesn't do anyone justice.

    You can still try to get it to generate a modeline for you, with the information you do have. It'll use common values for the things you've not filled in, so the resulting modeline is a very good...

    Right. Well, what the EDID parser does is to calculate modelines for each supported mode on your monitor. Instead, you can use online utilities to create the "correct" modeline for a given resolution...

    Indeed, this is a killer flaw for my use of graphics drivers. They have until the next version to fix this, as far as I'm concerned.

    That, of course, depends on the game - some Wine optimisations for 2d games have been broken with fglrx for some time now, because the fglrx driver doesn't make available the full range of OpenGL...
