    Suspend working/failing seems to be more often a matter of BIOS than anything else. My cousin has a nVIDIA gpu that is supposed to be all roses according to what you read around these forums and it doesn't suspend/hibernate, not even in Windows. My AMD system with HD4200 IGP suspends/hibernates all the time perfectly using FGLRX and Radeon OSS drivers.

    What I'm trying to say is that if your system doesn't suspend properly, it probably never will.

    Catalyst 11.11 is basically working with F16 and Gnome3.
    There are no severe graphics corruptions. But it is not a smooth experience. Display
    in general is a bit choppy (it is fine for the fallback mode and for the XFCE desktop, tough).
    Sometimes there is graphics corruption in the overview mode for the background.

    Occasionally gnome-shell crashes (I do not know the root cause), but the X server
    and fglrx never crashed for me since the day of the 11.11 release.

    No it will not unless you switch from Gnome to KDE and if you switch to KDE i would recommend to use the 11.10 catalyst which runs very smoothly. The 11.11 catalyst is performing worse.

    Catalyst 11.11 drivers Working with Fedora 16 KDE

    First you must download the package available here. http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/at...x86.x86_64.run . You have to download the updates with the command:

    # yum upgrade

    Although one of the updates are installing a new kernel you have to reboot the computer and Entert Fedora Verne KDE with the new kernel.

    After this update you should install the kernel headers and the GCC compiler:

    # yum install gcc kernel-headers kernel-devel

    At this point you must exit the graphics mode with this command:

    # init 3

    From here, log in as root with the command cd to the directory where you downloaded the drivers and run the command:

    # bash ./ati-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run

    Follow the onscreen instructions and restart the computer at the end with the command:

    # reboot

    When you restart you can finally enjoy 3D acceleration!

    Check your Graphics working with these commands :
    fgl_glxgears
    fglrxinfo

    I hadn't tried it yet as I was waiting on the release notes.... But if it is building that is a good sign.... I'll give it a shot on mine.
