  • kernel 3.18.9 + Catalyst Omega = hang

    Thanks to Phoronix for getting me up-to-date on AMD's new driver design plan and for the news that a new driver is expect later this month. I'm hopeful for 2015--although, I don't really have any other choice.

    I found someone's patch for Omega that allowed it to compile on kernel 3.17 and, later, 3.18.3. But now, with 3.18.9, the situation is changed. The kernel module compiles (with the same patch as before) and the installer completes successfully. But, the system hangs hard immediately when loading X11.

    Is anyone else seeing this? I have two 7870 cards.
