    Default AMD Catalyst 11.10 is out.

    20 minutes and hasn't crashed yet. Far superior to 11.9.

    its like the opt out of atomic energy in Germans, Switzerland and Belgium if you opt out from the catalyst the FGLRX will never crash again

    I'm happy with the radeon driver right now

    These drivers are working awesome for me! Fast performance! It has been some time ago I have been this happy with FGRLX!

    Fantastic!!

    wonder if it will be an official "additional driver" with ubuntu soon - or i will haveto get my hands dirty again.

    pity about the lack of change logs - id like to know how much more opengl support was in the release. perhaps the texture_from_pixmap glitches have been addressed ?

    Is this finally the driver I'm waiting for over 2 years now?

    How does gnome-shell behave?

    I use KDE, all I can say is that it's not crashing X if you use KDE like 11.9 was every few minutes.

    Generated DEB-packages doesn't work for me at all. After installation and "amdconfig --initial" X Server doesn't start with this error:
    (WW) fglrx(0): ************************************************** *********
    (WW) fglrx(0): * DRI initialization failed *
    (WW) fglrx(0): * kernel module (fglrx.ko) may be missing or incompatible *
    (WW) fglrx(0): * 2D and 3D acceleration disabled *
    (WW) fglrx(0): ************************************************** *********
    Not sure yet, but probably Oneiric packaging script is broken. Now I can't even go back to Catalyst 11.8 from Canonical repository - it's doesn't load too with same error message. Any advices?

    It hasn't needed a xorg.conf in a while, just skip amdconfig and it will work.

    I know, but X Server doesn't start without xorg.conf too.
