    Default AMD Releases Catalyst 9.6 For Linux

    Phoronix: AMD Releases Catalyst 9.6 For Linux

    AMD has pushed out a new Catalyst driver update for Linux users this afternoon. The two new features in this release, as mentioned by their release notes (PDF), is support for new Linux distributions and MultiView support for Radeon hardware. The distributions now officially supported by the Catalyst 9.6 Linux driver is SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 and early Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.8 support...

    The website still shows 9.5, and does the new driver have 2.6.29/30 support?

    No because who needs it? ATI is still in time where 2.6.10 is out.

    I know, I am using the Open Source drivers anyway, but I am just curious.

    oh no, the worst issue ever:
    "System may stop responding when running Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory"

    so even if i can have 3D on a 780g with the driver, i might not be able to use it for the only true reason

    It seems AMD is aware of that. Catalyst 9.6 isn't even available for download yet.

    Another useless driver,

    - No support for kernel 2.6.29 or 2.6.30.
    - Legacy GPUs code is still there though disabled making the download too big and not letting legacy users enjoy this code while it is still there, what a selfish bunch.
    -No support for Linux yet, just three outdated distributions.

    Guys, I can go as far as to say that kernel 2.6.30 or .31 for that matter, support will be added by the 9.9 if we are lucky or 9.10 release.

    Yesterday I was still an AMD supporter even though I hated ATI. Today, I hate AMD and ATI. Is so sad, I won't buy AMD and even less ATI anymore.

    I just would like to know:

    "Why?!"

    You got one month to prepare good working driver with support, many people was even giving code to support new kernel's but no. This driver should be called 'Catalyst for stable/old Ubuntu', not Catalyst for Linux. You do not support stable kernels, you do not support alpha kernels. Then what the hell you support?

    Just replace 9-5 by 9-6 in the URL for the download ...
