    The obvious questions ensue.

    What did it fix?

    (More likely)

    What did they break this month that was working last month?

    (and finally)

    Embedded Linux? Is this even the right driver for desktop users?

    The driver says it is FGLRX 8.95, which is Catalyst 12.2

    EGL? Intresting. It work on typical Linux distributions with EGL applications? (Like KWin for OpenGL ES.)

    After looking into it, it's Catalyst 12.2-based and with desktop GPUs it will print an Unsupported Hardware watermark on the screen.

    Dear AMD,

    Would it kill any of you idiots to update the documentation instead of shipping some that's 10 years old and lies about what Linux is and refers to Lindows and XFree86?

    If you're going to ship this crap that's so outdated that it only serves to increase the download size and make you look retarded, please just strip all of it out. I don't think any of it even applies to a distribution newer than around 2002.

    It may not be obvious, but old distros are a big part of the workstation business. RHEL 4.x support was a priority until very recently.

    So is there any chance at all that this would work with the current stable X server? I'm guessing no since you usually don't.
