Phoronix IRC Log: 2009-12-18
carldani: I just posted a flashrom Request For Testers in the Phoronix "Motherboards & Chipsets" forum.
carldani: I hope this is OK. Not sure if I should have picked the "General Linux" forum instead. Apologies if I got that wrong.
michaellarabel: carldani: You can put it wherever you want
carldani: michaellarabel: Thanks. Is there anything I have to do? The post was marked as "waiting for moderation".
michaellarabel: Nope, since you are a new member and the post had a link in there it first had to clear the spam filter, but I just cleared it for you.
carldani: Thanks a lot!
kelledin: So...how long should the warsow test normally take?

GraveDigger: does anyone know if the catalyst 9.12 linux drivers support opengl3.x?
Kano: GraveDigger: well i would use the hotfix, it reports 3.2 just like nvidia
GraveDigger: okay, nice, have you got a url where to get this hotfix driver?
GraveDigger: ah okay
GraveDigger: erm, no ... i only find a hotfix driver for windows
GraveDigger: url pls?
Kano: same url
GraveDigger: thx Kano
Kano: make a backup of /etc/ati/signature
Kano: you will need it ;)
GraveDigger: i cannot download the hotfix itself
GraveDigger: i get redirected to a 403 site at amd.com
Kano: you try with wget?
GraveDigger: but i know clicked myself thru the amd.com site
GraveDigger: and am downloading it now manually
GraveDigger: so it works
Kano: you never know about --referer amd.com option i think ;)
GraveDigger: actually... you are right
GraveDigger: i never knew :O

GraveDigger: OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
GraveDigger: OpenGL version string: 3.2.9239
GraveDigger: OpenGL shading language version string: 1.50
GraveDigger: Kano: works, thanks =)
Kano: i am thinking about a hotfix script
Kano: but basically ati was really stupid not to use the updated driver when it was available 1 day at least before release of default 9-12 driver
