    soeiro, I can confirm the debian testing problem with fglrx, 3d is failing, although the driver installs fine, no errors, but on x start Xorg.0.log shows this:

    Does anyone know if 9-5 still requires libdrm2 v 2.3.x debian like the previous ones, or does it support the new libdrm 2.4?

    Wielkie G, you were correct, I should have recognized the shattered top red line and black screen, lol. But I honestly can't keep all these fglrx issues straight, I'll have to implement a libdrm2...

    Wielkie G, thank you for the reminder, on that test box I have 8 installs, and in fact you're right I believe, I neglected to hold that package, let me confirm or deny the libdrm2 thing and get back...

    Here I was, all happy to test 9-4 with Sid 2.6.29 and Xorg 1.6, but sadly, 9-4 just failed to really start X. It tries, with or without the patches, but it just can't do it. And now the 32 bit Sid...

    For about 4 weeks I've been predicting a major move from AMD/ATI re their driver development for Linux systems. Not because of any technical reasons, but for the financial reasons one early poster in...

    Much as I appreciate Bridgeman's presence here, ATI fglrx drivers will in my opinion continue to be broken by design until the two following consistent problems are fixed:

    bridgman, looking good. We're able to resume direct ATI fglrx install with 8-4 in our installer scripts, no hacks, using Debian Sid create deb then install it, installer option. Since no hacks to run...

    When we dropped active ATI driver support, consistent file naming was one of the top requirements to consider supporting the ATI driver installer again, mainly because it was such a beautiful symbol...

    Bridgman, you asked a question re GNU/Linux market penetration a while back in this thread, if it was expected to rise 10x. Since you are the first real sign of actual openness I've seen in a few...

    Poll: It makes no difference at all what ATI/AMD does...

    It makes no difference at all what ATI/AMD does now. They have a steady track record of failure, so just because they are saying they will change in those 'secret' ways that will be great if they...

    well, any doubt about this fake monthly release schedule is removed. The lack of testing of course was already obvious, this simply confirms that their methods are flawed. But this type of error is...

    If you update to latest xserver-xorg-core in debian sid you can now install the 8.37.6 driver without using hacks.

    Hopefully users will be able to enjoy at least one functioning driver now,...

    This phoronix press release was a SERIOUS mistake on AMD's part, and on Phoronixes. AMD had to announce something of substance, something real, and instead they just tricked phoronix into printing a...

    The one bright spot is that the experimental ati xorg drivers are working very well on older hardware. I really think that ATI should just admit their incompetence and stop even trying, just open the...

    Well, after reading the ATI / AMD press release disguised as an 'article' here on phoronix, several things become immediately obvious: forget about open drivers. Forget about any of the issues...

    On the remote chance anyone from ATI cares, here's the xserver-xorg-core version information:

    I won't believe this until I see an official announcement from AMD (not from ATI). An announcement made by someone other than a marketing guy. And that looks like this:
