  • I also have my HD7770 from MSI. I asked their support about this problem but they said that they can't do anything

      With this drivers it works on 100% and I think something didn't setup completely... And also with this drivers Steam gives me OpenGL error when I launch it.
      I have the same problem with a R9 270. Here's some background information:
      https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73338

      I guess we'll have to wait for a kernel update? Or maybe enabling dpm in the boot-config helps for you - it didn't make a change for my card though.
      You could also try some of the new kernels; maybe they work better for your card (I don't believe it but it's probably worth a try). I testet my system up to 3.15 rc3 without a change in fan speed.

      So I switched back to fxglr 14.4 which is way more silent and works with all the games but has horrible 2d-performance and some graphics glitches.

      The driver situation for "modern" ATI cards (some of them several years old) is very very unsatisfactory at the moment. My personal solution: I'll sell my card as soon as I lose my patience and buy one from nvidia.

      • Anyone know how to get the temperature with these drivers? Sensors doesn't show my Radeon HD 6370m.

          If you mean the open radeon drivers:
          (sudo) sensors-detect

          Afterwards you can use the gathered sensors with lm-sensors for example.

            Tried that and got this.

            Code:
            acpitz-virtual-0
            Adapter: Virtual device
            temp1:        +49.0?C  (crit = +99.0?C)
            
            coretemp-isa-0000
            Adapter: ISA adapter
            Core 0:       +43.0?C  (high = +80.0?C, crit = +90.0?C)
            Core 2:       +37.0?C  (high = +80.0?C, crit = +90.0?C)

            • Anyone know if the PTE patch is included with these drivers?

              • It is a patch for a kernel, instead of mesa

                • Update LLVM to point release?

                  Hi Oibaf,

                  Just wandering if you could update and use to compile the point release of LLVM 3.4.1? Thanks
