    The Radeon 6000 series is not that old. I've seen your posts, you're an Nvidia fanboy.

    Most plausible so far.

    I haven't worked on the packaging scripts for Catalyst in years since I stopped maintaining the Fedora fglrx package scripts, but while possible this probably wouldn't be the case. There could simply be a new "Android" packaging script option and its own set of installer scripts just as there is with any distro and those scripts themselves would ignore anything X related and not require Ubuntu/SUSE/etc to offer a --NoXServer switch.

    Maybe, but radeon 6000 gpus are still being sold in brand new PCs today, so it's not very fair of you to dismiss it as "old" and useless.

    So when will Catalyst support EGL?

    Fedora 20's Gnome 3 desktop uses the EGL backends by default (which Catalyst doesn't), so installing Catalyst on F20 + Gnome essentially ***** up the entire desktop. Compare that to Nvidia's proprietary driver which already has EGL support and works with F20 + Gnome without any issue.

    All I see here is hints of them preparing to work Catalyst to function without X, but nothing of EGL.

    Just because its being sold by some obscure company does not mean its new. Calling a GPU old is nothing bad though.
