    According to https://www.kernel.org/ looks like rc7 was released.

    I've had little stability issues with fglrx on my 7850. Desktop usage, video playback, and most games were fine. Only exception were some games I ran through Wine which acted a bit strangely with...

    Good for you. This has nothing to do with AMD's proprietary driver, and don't really understand why people feel the need to show their "undeniable love of NVIDIA" where it isn't warranted...

    If AMD honestly doesn't know exactly, that would possibly imply people aren't reporting problems, but maybe I'm wrong.

    I'll wait until I get my GPU back from RMA to see how fglrx is. As of lately...

    I'm not the guy who claimed such or even know the situation exactly, but if this was the case in the past; this doesn't change anything. It just means Canonical is improving the situation now.

    I installed a Utopic daily yesterday, and the install time took a few minutes. I recall 13.1 having a fast installation time too (not as fast as Utopic, but still pretty good). Factory seems to take...

    Just got done installing the latest Factory snapshot on my laptop from a USB drive in UEFI; no (significant) issues at all :) The only issue I've seen is that the Check Media option doesn't work. Has...

    openSUSE by-default offers a DVD 4GB image which contains a good bit of included software, and a couple of desktop environments. It's ideal for if you know you want to install openSUSE, and/or want...

    I'm almost certain you don't have a choice (yet) when gaming with NVIDIA.

    Heh, of course this happens right when I try to lessen my gaming time :p

    I agree with this, although I speak from 13.1's installer experience. Last time I tried 13.2/Factory, the installer was broken when trying to do any kind of drive partitioning, but it seems they got...

    Good luck with that. If you have warranty with the place you bought it from, deal with them first. And even if it's out of warranty from the place of purchase, maybe bother them a bit about it. Last...

    More stable? You must not have radeonsi hardware then.

    Last I checked about 2-3 weeks ago, open-source drivers were incredibly unstable on my 7850. Things like web browsing and even looking at...

    Ah; I'll have to look into getting that set up.

    Was using today's 3.17 daily, and had 4 GPU crashes in a row with browsing Plex's website in Chrome... I fell back to kernel 3.14.18 a bit ago, and...

    Yeah but he said "out the box" which was a bit confusing. Out-the-box implies open-source drivers.

    I don't know of any distro where a proprietary graphics driver is installed right after install....

    Hmm, didn't see this thread before I made a thread on AMD Linux already, ah well.

    Anyway:

    - Works on 3.16.1 as-is (firegl_public.c mod was already done)
    - Can work on unsupported hardware if...

    Correction on this. If you have the already-configured xorg.conf, the driver works fine. You can't generate another xorg.conf though on unsupported hardware.

    So if you've installed a previous...

    I have Trinity hardware (7660G on the APU + 7670M dGPU). Dota 2 with Catalyst would have some strange FPS issue (FPS would gradually climb up to around 60, then gradually drop to single-digit, and...
