    I see that there are more mistakes, a lot of entries

    Code:
    ....
    <3>[fglrx:KAS_Mutex_Release] *ERROR* Mutex released without holding it.

    i tried it and it broke my desktop. The image would stutter on anything i tried, from game to general window movements in a cyclic fasion so drag,drag,drag--pause--drag,drag,drage--pause-- < same for games on native steam and even wine.

    13.4 is much better but then again i cant deal with the weirdy vsync and frame inconsistency id rather have lower smoother logical frames than barmy 150fp then 25fps then 50fps then 70fps. Ohh and 2D performance is still woeful on Catalyst I belive its the reason why a lot of games are slow because even when your playing a 3D game they often use 2D volumetric effects and sprites.

    Change http:// to https://

    If you do curl -v on the http:// link, you get a properly empty file with this content length header
    Code:

    Well, if you have an OpenGL 4.4 app I suggest you use NVidia's driver.

    But then you need a Nvidia graphics card.
    The Nvidia driver doesn't work on AMD cards.

    Which is exactly why there are no OpenGL 4.4 apps.

    Once the drivers are done, the apps will come. ATI is shooting themselves in the foot again. Oh wait, they have already shot it for years now, so this I guess is normal.

    You seem to be confused.

    Is ATI shooting themselves in the foot by not providing drivers? Or will the apps not come until the drivers are provided? Make up your mind.

    Hint: they won't come until the drivers are ready. Which means ATI can take as long as they want.
