    Phoronix: AMD Catalyst 10.4 For Linux Officially Released

    While early adopters of Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid Lynx" have had access to the Catalyst 10.4 Linux driver for more than a month (in fact, two pre-releases) this afternoon AMD has officially released their April Linux driver...

    I will take the lead! It is still crap!

    Every time you try Catalyst, god kills a kitten. How many have to die?

    Wow. It supports X Server 1.7. How cutting-edge. I bet NVIDIA is jealous.

    Don't worry, xorg 1.8 support will surely take another half year to get done.

    10.4 breaks KWin compositing for me, but that's not really an issue since I don't use it anyway. Otherwise running fine on XServer 1.6

    I've had problems with Kwin too, though part of it might be a messed up amdpcsdb file. I've given the new 2D accel a try and it's rather nice, right off the bat the only bug I can see is that the "close" button for fullscreen applications isn't visible.
    Xv output seems to have improved too on my box. I do have TexturedVideo and TexturedVideoSync on in xorg.conf though, not sure it helps or not, anyway I had a hard time spotting a difference between VLC with Xv output and SMplayer with OpenGL on the same file.

    Why wait for so long. Using the 10.4 with 1.8.0.1 without problems in arch.

    So had to add just over 300 lines to my script because ATI is unable to update the packages dir from fglrx-packageing.git. Could somebody explain too me why this is so complicated? Added a tricky workaround to be able to use Ubuntu packages with squeeze/sid - lucid is used on real Ubuntu only. Do NOT try to use lucid target on Debian. Drivers are patched to support up to 2.6.34 kernel of course.
