    I just have to say, thank you Phoronix for being a bit more realistic/honest in your articles. It is disappointing, and it's not unprofessional to say so, though perhaps Linux users should not be disappointed over fglrx as the development and bug fixing has always been slow on it any way.

    fglrx is a great argument for the ATI/AMD open source drivers. I hope they put ever increasing effort into them instead.

    I hope at the very least that things will be solid and ready for the Xorg and kernel Ubuntu 10.04 uses. :P .33 kernel support would be kewl too though for Fedora and Debian testing.

      And what about xvba?
      Actually I was wrong.
      Adding nopat to this line:
      GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nopat"

      in /etc/default/grub

      Makes opencl running with Ubuntu karmic and fglrx 10.1

        Works for me -- sort of (Jaunty)

        I had no problems installing it to Jaunty x86_64 from the gui installer. All I had to do was logout and back in and voila! it was running. Seems pretty stable, too.

        OTOH I find dual monitor support pretty shabby, as compared to Windows, or the free drivers with xrandr (and Jaunty has a very nice gnome taskbar applet for this that works as well as CCC in Windows -- perhaps even better.

        Alas my new 4650 is unsupported by the free drivers...

          On a ThinkPad with two GPUs, the 10.1 drivers makes X go black, regardless of whether it is actually used (that is, regardless of what adapter you enable in BIOS), so that is a big No-Go. I skipped 9.12, and will skip 10.1, as 9.11 plays along nicely with a hybrid xorg.conf that contains both definitions for the onboard intel and the dedicated ati gpu.

          I was hoping for 10.1 to fix some of the issues (like amdccc breaking xorg.conf), but as usual, it just brings more problems.

            Do you mean 4650 or 5650 ?

              why are you disappointed? It is a bugfix release you get bugfixes. To be disappointed you have to have some expectations. Did you listen to Quaridium?

              If you look back you'll see that you get your monthly bugfix release and circa every 3 or 6 month some new stuff. Now add that this is a 'christmas' release which means that there wasn't much time for it and everything is a lot less dramatic than a lot of people here act like.

                Excuse me. I meant my 4650 is allegedly supported by the free radeonhd driver, it just doesn't work for me.

                  Built Slackware package fine with ./ati-driver-installer-10-1-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Slackware/All and it installed fine
                  biggest issue right now is I've noticed a memory leak while editing maps in Sauerbraten i checked on the Sauerbraten forums it seems to be a problem with the windows version and Linux version of the driver so thats fine i'm fairly certain it is the driver because i had someone test who had a simple Intel card but i believe this problem has been present since at least the 9.11 since that was the version i first noticed it everything else seems to work fine though

                      Forget it. Catalyst 10.1 does not support Xorg 1.7.
