Proprietary AMD/ATI Catalyst fglrx 14.9 (14.301.1001-1) rpm released

October 11th, 2014 by

As of October 11th, a bunch of new rpm for FGLRX has been released for openSUSE 11.4 to 13.1 including Tumbleweed.
a special patch has been added for supporting up to kernel 3.17

Installation / update

Please refer to the wiki page SDB:AMD_fgrlx_legacy

Notice radeon HD5xxx or above only

This release concern only owners of radeon HD5xxx or above.
For older gpu, the fglrx-legacy is still 13.1, and thus didn’t work with openSUSE 12.3 or above.
SDB:AMD_fgrlx_legacy
Beware of that, and prefer the free open-source radeon driver which came out of the box from your openSUSE distribution.
For 12.3 and especially 13.1 the free radeon often offer a better experience than the old fglrx-legacy, especially for HD2xxx-HD4xxx range.

openSUSE Factory / 13.2

Dear fellow, unfortunately an still open bug at AMD is not yet resolved to make FGLRX working under newer xorg version.
There’s also a re-organization of how xorg files will be placed in the file system. Once both of them will be fixed Sebastian will produce a newer script.
If those appear soon we perhaps will see rpm fglrx for 13.2.

Patience is a virtue, especially with AMD gpu drivers, but today is the FGLRX day!

Yesterday Sebastian Siebert has published new versions for almost everything (except legacy dead horse).

So after 3 versions of the driver, compiled for 6 versions of openSUSE, under 2 arch, the rpms have been published today

Question : how many compilation does that mean? :-)

Résumé

Changing the signer of package

I’ve done a change with which key used for signing the package and repository. So you will need to trust the new key for the repository

Release note about 13.12

This Catalyst fglrx version support openSUSE version from 11.4 to 13.1 and also Tumbleweed (thus also kernel 3.12/13 series).
A special thanks to Sebastian Siebert for his effort on making this driver working under openSUSE.

If a kind German geeko can take the time to translate his article, put the result in comments below, you will understand that getting it working,

Notice for users of the -beta repository

If you previously used the fglrx drivers using the -beta created for fglrx 13.11, you could not switch back the url of the repository to the standard one.
The beta will contain now outdated driver until AMD release a new one.
If you were using the normal repository the update should appear directly

To change the url if your repository is called FGLRX
zypper mr -n FLGRX http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx/openSUSE_13.1

Tumbleweed

For tumbleweed due to the change of openSUSE version from 12.3 to 13.1, you will certainly have remove the old package and install the new one.

Yippee Yeah Another Proprietary AMD/ATI Catalyst fglrx 13.11 BETA v9.4 (13.25.18-2) rpm are released for any openSUSE version

Yippee Yeah Another Proprietary AMD/ATI Catalyst fglrx 13.11 BETA v9.4 (13.25.18-2) rpm are released for any openSUSE version

amd logo

Welcome in paradise II … :-)

A fresh new version of the FGLRX driver has been released by AMD, and thus packaged and available for all of you.

Next month, AMD promise to release a stable version.

Notice

This release concern only owners of radeon HD5xxx or above. All owner of HD2xx and HD4xx are really encouraged to use the free radeon driver (which received a lot of improvement in 3.11)

There’s 13 and thirteen :-) When I speak about 13.1 it’s openSUSE version, 13.11 is FGLRX version, don’t get confused! Oh and 3.11 is the kernel version :-)

This is experimental & BETA software, it could fix issues you encountered (FGLRX not working for openSUSE 13.1),
But good reports have been collected around (people having used Sebastian’s script directly)

I would like to thanks again Sebastian Siebert for his effort to kept FGLRX in a good shape for all of us.

Beta Repository

To make things clear about the status of the drivers, it will not be published under the normal stable repository http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx.
I’ve created some times ago a beta repository located at http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx-beta.
The FGLRX 13.11 beta6 and beta 9.4 rpm are released for any openSUSE version from 11.4(Evergreen) to latest 13.1 + Tumbleweed

Also the signer of package have change and use now the generic builder gpg key at Ioda-Net. (gpg key id 65BE584C)

Installing the new repository

Admitting you’ve the normal repository named FGLRX, (use zypper lr -d to find the number or name you give it). You have to start by disabling it
so you could fallback to it quickly when new stable version will be published. Open a root console or add sudo at your convenience and issue the following command:

zypper mr -dR FGLRX

amd-fglrx-beta

To add another repository in the same console as root issue the following command which will install normally the right repository for your distribution

zypper ar -n FGLRX-BETA -cgf http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx-beta/openSUSE_`lsb-release -r | awk '{print $2}'` FGLRX-BETA

If you are using Tumbleweed use this one

zypper ar -n FGLRX-BETA -cgf http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fglrx-beta/openSUSE_Tumbleweed FGLRX-BETA

Now the update/upgrade process

zypper dup -r FGLRX-BETA

Let the system upgrade the package, and try to enjoy the new beta.
