Thread: People incorrectly assume that AMD drivers suck. They don't.

    The only problem I've ever had with AMD video drivers on Linux is a tendency to tearing in video.

    If you are running unstable, then it is your fault.

    Amd ati made me loose all fun on linux.

    suse 11.3 hd5750 (1gig)

    I recently downloaded ubuntu, and will try again to install the catalist drivers on Linux.

    The next graphics card I buy is most likely an nvidia.

    I am willing, because I like linux, to over look some things.
    But not even be able to use firefox normally....
    A freaking web browser, and my quad core at 3.2, with above vid card,
    cant even scroll s web-page without horrible lag, after installing catalyst drivers.

    On a suported linux distro

    Ati(amd) must hate his customers.

    On windows although in games all seems fine, only last week some weird error on W7.
    updating again to newer catalyst drivers, solved that though...

    This is why good bug reporters are needed... This tells me absolutely nothing. The only thing I know is your on Debian, and this is useless. The only things I can figure out is the following...

    Debian 4.0 ( etch ) or newer.
    32 or 64bit os ( also matters )
    no updates.

    I rarely have problems with firefox, and from what i can see... Care to provide some more system information? This does not tell me anything.

    It was months ago. I hope ati has learned something from it, because I was one of many with these problems.
    All having hd 5000 series.

    amd phenom II quadcore at 3.2 gig
    Hd 5750 1 gig
    4 gig of ram
    dual boot pc w7 32bit en suse 11.3 64bit

    Scrolling reminded me of the old days loading large text documents.
    pictures blacked out.

    I see... this helps a little bit... however, I have not ran into the same issues you have with firefox ( at least with recent releases ). Although, I use Linux Mint 13. Have you tried with the latest drivers? also, are you certain it was fglrx/catalyst and not the Mesa drivers?

    @Dandel

    Are you affiliated with AMD?

    Nope. I ran testing debian testing.

    I don't plan to reported it, sorry. But my rig is:
    Debian Wheezy (testing) 64 bit. It seg faults, with 12-6 catalyst. I've tried Kano script and manual install with same result.

    I had allot of help, but no success.
    Yes it was the (then) latest close source driver.

    The default drivers installed on suse for my hardware, worked fine in FF but no 3D.

    I really hope to have more luck with ubuntu and the 12.6
