    @Michael,

    I think you should rewrite the news entry.
    There isn't still full support for linux 2.6.25, because the module still tries to use the (in 2.6.25) obsoleted "init_mm" symbol.
    So on linux 2.6.25.x users have to patch their kernels (reexport the obsoleted symbol...).

    Thats the most easy way to fix it (the awk line is just for info, use the other 2):
    Code:
    awk '/^signature=/' ati-driver-installer-8-4-x86.x86_64.run
    
    signature="e7d56ac97bfc562e683610e1a87e1b7e:dffb5efe4dd16616580522d9c9532b48d5e35af838d1177a211624d1984f2d48:83b30cab4e99304b5c5274d09e482a48d2ed5afc49ce32170b0f25d29a1c2f4683e00ffa4e9d30165b0e74d099492c1fd5e45bff49c8321f510e24879a1a2f46"
    
    sed -i 's/\(signature=\).*/\1"'$signature'"/' ati-driver-installer-8-5-x86.x86_64.run

    Yeah. I just noticed that too. After I'd uninstalled. D'oh.

    I barely can believe this, but it appears to support AGP HD2xxxs cards. sundown, sorry, just have got hard system crash with xvideo

    Well, link above is NOT release driver yet, it's "testing".

    We will see about this improved video playback now. This is becoming my favorite part, the developers insist they've improved video playback when I can hardly confirm that

    With that said,

    All of the Catalyst Linux driver releases this year have been... well, boring. There have been a few bug fixes in each release and new product support for the latest ATI/AMD GPUs, but no major features have been introduced in several months. However, during this time we've been telling you to get ready for an interesting summer and that "we have reason to believe AMD does have some Linux work under development that could make 2007 look boring compared to this year." It was in 2007 that AMD had introduced their brand-new driver with AIGLX support. Well, with the release today of Catalyst 8.5 the monthly Linux driver releases are becoming more interesting and we should have several exciting months ahead. What does today's Linux driver bring to the table? We'll give you the run-down in this article, but to get you started there is now Catalyst AI, Linux 2.6.25 support, and a much improved 2D performance!

    It's not on their site yet. Where did you get the download from?
