    Default AMD Catalyst 9.10 dropped in Ubuntu 9.10

    https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ka...er/008022.html

    Supports Ubuntu 9.10 including Linux 2.6.31. Should be on your mirror soon I guess

    A little script to install it somewhere else - but you need new Xserver, missing files for Debian lenny for example:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    cd /usr/src
    wget -N http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-9-8-x86.x86_64.run
    wget -N http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/restricted/f/fglrx-installer/fglrx-installer_8.660.orig.tar.gz
    DIR_OLD=fglrx.old
    DIR_NEW=fglrx.new
    rm -rf "$DIR_OLD" "$DIR_NEW"
    mkdir "$DIR_OLD" "$DIR_NEW"
    sh ati-driver-installer-9-8-x86.x86_64.run --extract "$DIR_OLD"
    tar -C "$DIR_NEW" -zvxf fglrx-installer_8.660.orig.tar.gz
    cp "$DIR_OLD"/* "$DIR_NEW"
    cp -r "$DIR_OLD"/setup.data "$DIR_NEW"
    cd "$DIR_NEW"
    wget -qO- "http://phorogit.com/index.php?p=fglrx-packaging.git&dl=targz"|tar zxv
    mv -v fglrx-packaging packages
    rm -rf packages/ArchLinux
    mkdir common
    mv -v etc lib opt usr common
    cp -r ../"$DIR_OLD"/packages/ATI packages
    ./ati-installer.sh 8.66 --install
    Edit: --install option fixed, you can replace that line with the one you usually use to create deb/rpm or whatever.

    Wait, 10 hours since the release and still nobody is bitching about bugs? Weird

    Anyway, I've modified the 9.8 ebuild to use this tar.bz2 and it seems to be a decent release. It works with 2.6.31-rc8 and Oblivion works in wine without tricks (no dlls from directx, no registry edits).

    I still can't get gdm to stop (it hangs the computer if I try) and xv still shows washed colors, but other than that no complaints. I still prefer the open source driver for daily usage, though.

    Hi Fran,

    could you please post your ebuild ?

    I can't wait to use 2.6.31-rc9-zen0 with BFS and this driver

    many thanks in advance

    The ebuild fetches a pre-made tarball. If you don't trust me, you can generate that tarball yourself by following Kano's instructions. Tar the result with no top-level directory.

    Most drawbacks with fglrx are wine issues now (best compare the same apps/games with nvidia card and same wine version), also non working xv without flickering and nothing to compete with vdpau which would be officially supported - unofficial benchmarks are really funny when nobody can verify em. But at least you see a picture with fglrx in U now - and with my hack or a simple mod somewhere else too.
