I switched from Geforce to Radeon for the FOSS drivers. I'd be an idiot if I did it for Catalyst since it's way worse than Nvidia's blobs
well i do the flollowing see kernel updates on software manager search for kernel updates if i find it then waith until catalyst beta comes out, also fedora dont support closed source
Workaround for Catalyst with Wayland-enabled GNOME 3 in Fedora 20
For the problem with GNOME 3 on Fedora 20, there's a workaround: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1054435#c4
Basically it's a bug in cogl.
I switched back to RadeonSI driver when I saw Kernel 3.14 in repo.
Not sure about Catalyst with Kernel 3.14.
Before that, I always use binary blob from AMD.com, rather than rpmfusion packaged one.
The 32bit lib in rpmfusion package has broken for long, which makes none of Steam game run.
It's been brought up before, but isn't Mesa portable to other OSes (AKA Windows)? If so, I'd really like to see a developer port the Mesa AMD drivers over to Windows 7/8 and do a comparison between them and the proprietary ones. If it's found that the Mesa drivers have similar (or possibly better?) performance while being, say, ~60% stabler (~60% less crashes/errors), I could see a ton of interest popping up in advancing Mesa and it's related drivers from *gasp* Windows devs
Good help is good help, I don't care what OS the dev is using ^.^
Works a lot better than previous beta packages in 14.04 (I had to wait at least second to see typed in text, browsers had issues with redrawing etc.), but it's still very bad when comparing to how it was (while not perfect) in 13.10. :-/

yeah, would be nice.

Or would it be possible to use the installed directx?
otherwise mesa would have to rebuild directx as oss...
For me (HD 6950) Catalyst working like crap on Kubuntu 14.04, e.g crash Xserver if I start Chrome with GPU acceleration.

Installing the Proprietary AMD Catalyst 14.4 (fglrx) Driver on Fedora 20, Kernel 3.14
If anyone needs help with this issue, see my blog:
Full instructions for getting the latest AMD Catalyst 14.4 driver to work with Fedora 20 running the latest kernel version are there. It's a relatively simple process once you have it all detailed in one location. Furthermore, be sure to pay attention to the possibility that the AMD Catalyst 14.4 RC driver will actually work better than the non-RC driver (as detailed in the blog).
Let me know if you have any issues; I'm glad to help troubleshoot!
