Again (yay) I'm first to announce that new drivers are out... but this time download link is broken :/ on official site it tries to download 9.10 but fails.
Anyone has other mirror ?
Let the bashing begin!
Yeah, they're not off to a good start with the broken links.
To be fair, I haven't had to use bash in a separate vty to fix fglrx in a while
I see no reason to install this unless they fixed xv or the slow resize/maximize issue with compiz/kwin. Stable 2.6.32 kernel should be coming out soon with open source 3d and kms for r600/r700.
And what's this, besides a "nyah, nyah, I know something you don't?"Originally Posted by Michael on the front page
I've done it! ATI stopped supporting my hardware (x300) on my laptop and I started to use the Open Source driver and honestly it's better that any of the close source drivers. And just out of spite I got my friend to move to Nvidia. YAY!
Well the fglrx 9-3 driver was needed for working suspend for one laptop, there ever a new oss driver snapshot failed. For another system with radeon 9600 the driver was definitely too slow. Both tested on Debian lenny. With some tricks it is still possible to use 9-3 with 2.6.31 kernel, but not really stable and with errors in dmesg since 2.6.29. I would really prefer to see an updated legacy driver. When you are forced to use newer Xorg/Mesa and OSS drivers thats not what i like.
But 9-10 is still missing in action, so ati is even too stupid to put the file on the server BEFORE linking to it! Must be really clever people there!
