    Default Catalyst 9.9 For Linux Released, Still XvBA Lacking

    Phoronix: Catalyst 9.9 For Linux Released, Still XvBA Lacking

    A day after they had some press event where they showed off a 24 monitor setup running Linux (we weren't there), AMD has today released the Catalyst 9.9 driver for Linux. This driver, which is still behind the Ubuntu-Catalyst 9.10 driver that has support for the Linux 2.6.31 kernel and other improvements, has just one new feature: support for new Linux operating systems.The new operating system support? OpenSuSE 11.1 and SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 SP3 early look support, although these packaging scripts have been worked on for some months...

    Wasn't there a thread already started that said name the next catalyst driver? I believe "same shit, different pile" was one of the name suggestions.
