AMD/ATI Catalyst fglrx 12.10 (9.002) released
This release concern only owners of radeon HD5xxx or above. For older gpu, the fglrx-legacy is still 12.6
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.
