11.11 has been released
The build succeeded on fedora 16, lets reboot
I hadn't tried it yet as I was waiting on the release notes.... But if it is building that is a good sign.... I'll give it a shot on mine.
I'm using it right now on Gentoo with Xorg-server 1.11, seems to be great.
Will the Catalyst 11.11 Works with Fedora 15 Gnome Version 3 ?
Anybody out there with success?
My Card is Radeon HD 3870.
First you must download the package available here. http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/at...x86.x86_64.run . You have to download the updates with the command:
# yum upgrade
Although one of the updates are installing a new kernel you have to reboot the computer and Entert Fedora Verne KDE with the new kernel.
After this update you should install the kernel headers and the GCC compiler:
# yum install gcc kernel-headers kernel-devel
At this point you must exit the graphics mode with this command:
# init 3
From here, log in as root with the command cd to the directory where you downloaded the drivers and run the command:
# bash ./ati-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run
Follow the onscreen instructions and restart the computer at the end with the command:
When you restart you can finally enjoy 3D acceleration!
Check your Graphics working with these commands :
There are no severe graphics corruptions. But it is not a smooth experience. Display
in general is a bit choppy (it is fine for the fallback mode and for the XFCE desktop, tough).
Sometimes there is graphics corruption in the overview mode for the background.
Occasionally gnome-shell crashes (I do not know the root cause), but the X server
and fglrx never crashed for me since the day of the 11.11 release.
Suspend working/failing seems to be more often a matter of BIOS than anything else. My cousin has a nVIDIA gpu that is supposed to be all roses according to what you read around these forums and it doesn't suspend/hibernate, not even in Windows. My AMD system with HD4200 IGP suspends/hibernates all the time perfectly using FGLRX and Radeon OSS drivers.
What I'm trying to say is that if your system doesn't suspend properly, it probably never will.
