    Support for kernel 2.6.29?

    Is this going to come in Catalyst 9.5 yet? (Just wondering if I'm waiting for naught
    Edit: Lemme reduce the size of the question to spare bridgman: the most important bit here is knowing with reasonable certainty if it will not come, not knowing if it comes.

    Can you confirm the 9.6 driver will support 2.6.29?

    Also my worst problem right now is that my fans are constantly spinning at full speed (cant regulate - sony vaio here), yes i'm talking about the GPU fan. Also running any video in full screen with vlc/mplayer crashes my entire computer, have to shutdown usin the power button

    Any ideas?

    Linux archbox 2.6.29-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Apr 29 15:36:46 CEST 2009 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8400 @ 2.26GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

    I can not help you with arch, but you could get a new Kanotix snapshot if you like

    In order to run fglrx i had to patch the kernel:

    Code:
    diff --git a/arch/x86/mm/tlb.c b/arch/x86/mm/tlb.c
    index 61ddfa0..3d26c0b 100644
    --- a/arch/x86/mm/tlb.c
    +++ b/arch/x86/mm/tlb.c
    @@ -279,6 +279,7 @@ void flush_tlb_page(struct vm_area_struct *vma, unsigned long va)
    
            preempt_enable();
     }
    +EXPORT_SYMBOL(flush_tlb_page);
    
     static void do_flush_tlb_all(void *info)
     {
    if somebody knows a better solution let me know. I still get errors in dmesg - 2 on start of any 3d app, 1 on close. Like:

    Code:
    [fglrx:firegl_find_any_map] *ERROR* Invalid map handle!<3>[fglrx:drm_vm_open] *ERROR* map not found -> inconsistent kernel data!!! vma_start:0xadbce000,handle:0xebcba000
    No idea how to fix that.

    Inline is used to insert body of the function in place where it's called to reduce amount of jumps(more or less).
    It would be really hard to do it within a pre-compiled binary.

    BTW. If there is no pressing need I allow compiler to choose whatever to inline or not a function.

    Not really, I just like this way of writing functions(debugging and all).
    Fair enough, I guess I was just being a prick. Nice work. (Another question, could this also be done with an inline function? I never got to test since I didn't get my sources to compile. Will try again later in a week)
