    Try installing Fedora. In my experiance, fedora's support for open drivers are a lot better than others simply because the kernel they use is much newer (6 months ahead sometimes) from Ubuntu.

    It is AMD's fault for the sorry state of their crapalyst driver. I suffered for a long time, but finally bought an NVidia card. I havent edited xorg.conf in such a long time that it feels good :-)

    Or, he can acknowledge that it is not his job to switch DEs around based on what AMD writes. What if he LIKES gnome-shell? I do, and I have been using Redhat (and then Fedora) for 17 years now.

    Count me as another completely dissatisfied (ex)AMD user. I bought my RadeonHD 5700 card in 2011. I paid about $220 or so on it, since it was a new top of the line card back then. It has YET to see a...

    Can you install fpaste and upload the Xorg.0.log file from /var/log? IT is hard to say what is going wrong without the log file.


    Tip: With fpaste, it will auto-upload the text file. Just like...

    Welcome to my life for the past 5 years until I bought an NVidia card. Catalyst is broken like that and was always broken. Additionally, distors are now switching to EGL, which catalyst doesnt...

    They will probably read it in the next 2 years. Seriously, I have given up and every penny of the 660Ti was worth it. I can at least preserve my sanity now.

    2. I do not believe that...

    If you are using fglrx proprietery you can just forget about this one as nothing supports this XvBA. Everyone went with VDPAU which catalyst proprietery does not support.
