    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 13.1 For Linux Officially Does X.Org 1.13

    Catalyst 13.1 for Linux was released on Thursday as the first AMD Linux binary blob of 2013. This driver is notable since it officially supports X.Org Server 1.13...

    New Legacy Driver available

    As a new Windows Legacy Catalyst is available

    Windows Legacy Catalyst 13.1

    I just checked the Linux driver page and there is also a new one listed as Catalyst 13.1

    Linux Legacy Catalyst 13.1

    Contrary to the Windows driver, the version on the top of the page still says "Version 12.6" but is called "Revision number 13.1".
    Apparently the driver is still stuck to kernel 3.4 and X.Org 1.12.

    Debian added the 3.7 patch for -1, if you get -2 then it should contain the 3.8 patch as well.

    I run Debian Testing and i have the 3.7.3-trunk-686 kernel installed from the experimental repos. Today i installed the 13.1 driver from the experimental repos and works perfectly (installed for both 3.6 and 3.7 kernels), so they probably patched it already it seems.

    Previously the 12.11 driver wasnt compiling on 3.7 unless i applied the patch.

    There are 5 patches inside, but only 2 are active when you look into debian/dkms.conf.in.
    Thanks for that!

    Do you have a link to those patches?

    If you go to http://kernel.org/ and look for a "stable" kernel, you get 3.7.3. Not supporting it is not the right thing to do.

    I bet they just don't want to do all the testing for such a "young" kernel.
    And obviously, just applying those patches without further tests is a no go.

    Don't get me wrong, I'd also like to see AMD catch up with recent X.Org and kernel releases way faster.

    I don't trust running NVidia on an AMD chipset Mobo.. or vice versa. I've had odd issues with that in the past. My next computer will mostly likely (definitely) be Intel + NVidia, but for this machine, I only needed to upgrade the GPU to use newer Catalyst/Xorg.
