    Default Ubuntu 7.10 May Include New ATI Driver

    Phoronix: Ubuntu 7.10 May Include New ATI Driver

    While Ubuntu 7.10 "Gutsy Gibbon" is already in a feature freeze, it looks like Mark Shuttleworth may allow the new ATI 8.41 driver to enter Gutsy Gibbon. Canonical is apparently interested in what ATI is doing on the Linux front and if the fglrx 8.41 meets their criteria, it may be included in Ubuntu 7.10.

    Good. 8.42 avaible in the backports would be even better

    AMD said Mark was considering it, but now Mark says no. His comments on the new driver though will be published within the next couple of hours, at Phoronix of course.
