New version of amd/ati Catalyst 11.7 / fglrx 8.872 available
I’ve rebuild and published the new rpms last wednesday, but didnt find the time to give some news here.
Please refer to my previous article where all the installation procedure is explained.
- Quick résumé :
- There’s no full changelog about them, but Catalyst 11.7 installer (pdf)
- Get the cheat-sheet 11.6 version
- Kernel supported up to 3.0x version
- Removed support of openSUSE 11.2, if you are still using it with Evergreen project, the repository still exist with older version
- Wrong (to my point of view) create an xorg.conf file which is unneeded if you work with /etc/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf and have driver "fglrx" inside
Some instabilities could happen. In case of crash like no keyboard, mouse, and blackscreen on reboot. Try to shutdown properly your computer with the shutdown poweroff button (or remote ssh). On reboot, just add 3 at the end of grub line to restart in console mode.
Then with yast or zypper you can always remove the actual version and try the previous version available in the repos.

What about tumbleweed, factory?
Users have reported that version 8.861 of catalyst 11.6 compile correctly under Tumbleweed with 2.6.39 kernel and the driver is ready for kernel 3.0x, so until xorg change too much and then AMD support for the new version, installing the 11.4 version should work
For factory, I’ve build a repository (see previous article) that can be used, and fglrx build.
The new package are called SUSE121 & no more SUSEFACTORY.
