    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 9.10 Linux Driver Released

    Available over at AMD.com is now the Catalyst 9.10 Linux driver update. The release notes for this driver have yet to be uploaded there, but the Catalyst 9.10 Linux driver offers support for arbitrary transformations with RandR 1.3, support for loading the fglrx kernel module when an open-source DRM kernel module is still loaded, a fix for the fglrx kernel module when using DKMS 2.1.0, an AMDCCCLE menu item issue has been resolved, support for the Radeon HD 5750/5770 Juniper graphics cards, and other bug fixes...

    major advancement?
    YAWN

    I bet it's hardware acceleration that we've all had for months on nvidia.

    The version in Ubuntu 9.10 is an earlier version of the code specifically for Ubuntu; the Catalyst 9.10 driver should contain additional changes.

    Is anyone else getting a 'Not Found' error while trying to download the 64-bit driver yet?

    Wow. That would give them the Nobel Peace Prize, if true.

    "Catalyst 9.10 also contains a major advancement too"

    I feel like a kid waiting behind the couch to see its shoe filled with presents. Hope this time my waiting will not quash my future experience.

    Already explained to often on these threads, will never happen for catalyst. radeon* drivers are your friends here.

    I'm having no problems with the size... only hoping for beter 2d performance and video acc. maybe 50% of my wishes will be granted soon

    Hello, thanks for the response. Do you happen to know if the driver in ubuntu supports the Radeon HD 5770 (I prefer to be lazy ).
