    Hey, I just sit in the big chair and read what they put in front of me

    Thanks go to to agd5f for digging through multiple layers of "the problem seems to be XYZ but that doesn't make sense" investigation to find the underlying problems, monraaf for pointing out the "run fglrx first" workaround (which gave agd5f a starting point), the other folks here who posted about their experiences with the code, and the internal AMD folks (HW and SW teams) who helped agd5f understand what else had changed in the hardware.

    The GPU lockups appear to be fixed. Grab the latest mesa and ddx code from git and make sure you have this drm patch:

    BTW latest status is that the current problems appear to be understood and Alex has started working on a set of patches. Current thinking is that mesa, ddx and drm will all need to be touched although the changes are pretty small. Check back tomorrow and hopefully there will be patches available.

    You do have to give him points for "everGr800n" though

    That's a good one. I'll throw it right back at you later this month when you're having problems again with the latest catalyst release.

    It doesn't matter if the driver isn't working for you, just remember a non working driver is better than no driver at all!

    Michael did accurately represent what I said during our discussion.

    That said, rather than "in a week or two" I guess a more complete statement (from me) would have been "until we get any obvious hardware programming issues resolved and reach the point where the remaining work does not require access to internal hardware information, which I expect to be in a week or two, but which could be longer or shorter depending on the issues we find after initial release".

    I was definitely expecting a week or two of post-release gotcha-fixing, but there was a bigger difference between what users saw and what we saw internally than we had seen on previous initial code drops.

    EDIT - just noticed that the initial release was only 13 days ago, so maybe "a week or two" will still turn out to be an OK guess

    Additionally, John will be re-tasking AMD's open-source developers within a week or two. With the foundation of the Evergreen 2D/3D/video support now laid, AMD will leave the rest up to the open-source community to complete while John will take AMD's limited internal developers and begin working on their next-generation support.

    It probably goes without saying that until we have the current GPU hangs & corruption resolved on Evergreen that work will remain a high priority...

    ... but I'll say it anyways just for clarity
