    xvba is totally broken. It segfaults like hell with the code that worked really nice on other all releases since 11.10 - currently investigating...

    It's not the first time they posted the embedded driver before the full/official one. I'll wait for the "real" 12.9. Is the new 2D architecture the default yet?

    Probably came across from work on another OS. Remember this is a code-shared driver.

    Unfortunately this driver do not detect my Asus Radeon 5870 V2 when running aticonfig --initial . "aticonfig: No supported adapters detected" . I hope that when they release the drivers on their official download page this issue will be corrected. My system is running Ubuntu 12.04 and I installed the driver from .deb file.

    Same here! Somehow both the Radeon HD 6570 and the integrated graphics on de A8-3870 aren't detectable.......
