    Are you joking or have you been living in a cave for the last year and a half?

    It's working under hybrid for a long time. But I will admit it's been really difficult to install with kernel errors, Xorg errors and intel driver errors. It only works on a very specific setup of version numbers.


    Also I really hope it fixes Vsync properly. They have applied Vsync patches before which have significantly improved the situation but there is still minor tearing. I'm going to be trying it out aas soon as I get home tonight.

    Fedora 18 + Catalyst 13.4 + HD6870 is the only time it worked for me ever. but damn thing started crashing on Steam launch in Fedora 19 + beta 13.6/8 :\
    With this release... TOO-FUCKING-LATE, kernel-3.11 with Radeon DPM just released, so to hell with this piece of shit !

    That could either be a case of bad configuration or the card itself is defective (unless it works fine using another set of drivers or another OS). You should not be getting those issues for any reason.


    As for me, the new beta drivers (so far) fixed the issue with my random kernel panics, but crossfire seemed to have stopped working altogether and I'm still getting render glitches in kwin. At this point I might just switch to the open source drivers, since at this point the catalyst drivers aren't really offering me anything I want aside from mildly better performance.

    I use Dual Graphics (7660G + 7670M) and can confirm I've had no problem with these drivers. Can't vouch for how it would react on an Intel + AMD hybrid setup though...

    FINALLY, this better fix all the issues I got in the last beta (rendering issues in kwin, completely random kernel panics when desktop is about to display, crossfire causing kernel panics, etc).
