    Default AMD Catalyst 7.11 Linux Driver

    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 7.11 Linux Driver

    For the past two months, the AMD release train has been running full speed ahead as they introduced their new driver code-base and last month had dropped in the AIGLX support. However, this month the AMD train has taken an intermediate stop as this closed-source driver embarks on its next journey. As always, we have all of the details for you on this month's ATI Catalyst 7.11 Linux display driver release.

    Aah new drivers finally, odd thing seems to me that release notes dont say anything about x-video problems (on AIGLX) as a known problem or fixed one. Guess i'll need to try those later on after i get some things done.

    Yeah I don't like the looks of that. That reminds me of that other release earlier in the year that was the most useless release. I hope this one is not the case as well. But it sure looks like it.

    Ok, I guess we must wait for 2008 to see if something works as it should...
