Release note about 12.10

This Catalyst version support 11.4 to Tumbleweed (thus also kernel 3.6x series). Unfortunately the latest factory didn’t upgrade successfully and failed to create its initrd. So no fglrx 12.10 for factory actually, but you are debugging free radeon, don’t you? 🙂

I’m translating here a note from Sebastian Siebert last post

I have a small request: If you have any problems with the driver, don’t be afraid to report to me (I take German and English bugreports are also gladly accepted). I will try, as far as I am able to reproduce the bug. Together with the necessary system information, I will go directly to the right place at AMD to have the bug fixed in the next driver release.
Thank you very much, Sebastian.

See below what to do in case of troubles.

Or you can also ping him on irc (freespacer)

    the new kernel-desktop version 3.6.5 breaks something… my radeon HD 6480G can’t handle 3d properly anymore. I tried downgrading to 3.6.4 but I can’t figure it out…

    Hopefully it will be solved fast. Thanks.
    If you need any information I’ll try to provide them, even on german!

    A new build is available, which can now use kernel 3.7 too
