Why do I have the feeling that the trolls are only out in force because almost all of their arguments have no merits anymore?
I'm not sure why, but this month the trolls are really getting to me. AMD's drivers work fine for me. Ok, compiz may have some trouble (guess what I don't use) but I've not had a single problem with AMD's drivers in a very long time. AMD's drivers also don't completely replace my glx stack (which I personally think is a good thing).
AMD's drivers are great. They're fantastic. They work. I want completely open source drivers, but in the mean time I can play all games I want, I can watch anything I want, dual monitors work perfect, and it all just works.
that 'right move' amd made is the single reason, why I have an amd graphic card on an amd board with amd cpu.
And don't tell me anything about 'windows mindset'. I invite you to look at my postings in the past.
I am also spending a lot of time on gentoo-user to help people. Windows mindset?
Because I am disappointed that AMD blew the chance away to be compatible with the not-even-latest kernel?
Go and kid yourself. You failed to amuse me.
Actually, the only thing I really miss in this driver is fan speed control (too noisy by default). I don't even need 3D much.
Any idea when AMD will update the openSUSE RPMs? I'm still stuck with 9.2 right now as I don't want to install the driver manually because I never got it working that way...
Apart from that, any experiences whether a) alpha-blur works with Compiz or KWin now b) starting a second X server (xinit -- :2) with 3D accel works or if it does start at all?
For what it's worth, Catalyst can be patched to work with 2.6.29 (using it on Arch amd64 without problems - no idea about 2.6.30).
Edit: the kernel devs generally frown on reports with tainted kernels. Maybe you could move to the OSS drivers, reproduce the bug and report it?
Edit 2: Heiko, thanks for the hint on EXT_geometry_shader. Hope to see that implemented in the not-too-far future.

though see this earlier post for Linus opinion about blobs:
Stop complaining and go contribute to open source ATI drivers. You have all required information to write good drivers.
