    Intel, considered as evil here, has on its side did the job themselves...

      This is what I originally do though - installed mesa-git and lib32-mesa-git. OS rebooted and the crashes were still present. Is that all?

        Why should other people have to do AMD's job for them ? With Nvidia I buy the hardware and it's supported on all platforms for 10 years. Man up AMD and sort your act out.

          ...Yeah, that's what I'm saying. It's a good thing! Since AMD has opted to put all their effort into open source, other companies and individuals can fix problems or create useful tools and features for their GPUs / etc..

            So maybe I'm missing something, but aren't we supporting open source drivers for 10 year old hardware as well ?

            The point here is not that other people *have* to do the work (we're about to release our own debug tool that has been in the works for a few months) but that they *can* do work like this as a result of us open sourcing the drivers and hardware information.

                  NVIDIA doesn't even have open source drivers so AMD is ahead of them by a long long shot. NVIDIA needs to catch up big time.

                    NVIDIA needs to man up. They've failed so badly. No documentation. No open source drivers. A lack of support. It's a joke. Get your shit together NVIDIA.

                      Where is that "10 years" info from?

                      If i investigate it like this, as here it say 304.xx serie supported till end of 2017:

                      http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3142

                      And found eldest serie supported there that is 6 Series:

                      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_series

                      So that launched on april 2004...

                      Summa summarum, that makes it if i counted right more than 13 years of support .

                      So it is minimum 10 years and depending on chip, but can be even more for somebody
