    Phoronix: ATI Linux Users Get Excited For Catalyst 10.10

    In what has become an unfortunate tradition for the past few releases, prior to the release of Ubuntu 10.10, AMD provided Canonical with a pre-release of their latest proprietary Catalyst driver at the time. They have done this to fix some major bugs, but primarily to provide a working ATI/AMD proprietary graphics driver that will run against their latest Ubuntu Linux release as usually their latest public releases at the time do not support Ubuntu's kernel and/or X.Org Server. With Maverick Meerkat, which was released yesterday, there is a pre-release of the Catalyst 10.10 Linux driver, which will not be released to the general public until later in October...

    ArchLinux has had a beta of 10.10 as a pkgbuild for a while now... and I am running it with xserver 1.9

    It may take a bit of fiddling if you have leftovers from the previous driver but .... that seems to happen on all distros and catalyst upgrades I have tried (and I always use the package manager too).

    lots of rendering in wine is broken for me for some reason...

    Title is very misleading. I don't see anyone getting "excited" over fglrx. Excitement over gallium3d progress, yes.

    Highly unlikely it supports 2.6.36

    There's nothing to be excited about, it's still a piece of proprietary and binary code, so it's worth nothing, and can't excite anybody that has a clue.

    Most probably they mean a fix for this bug:

    They could just mean Steam through WINE. Although we can hope otherwise
