AMD Catalyst 15.11 for openSUSE – new makerpm-amd-script is available

December 5th, 2015 by

AMD has released the new AMD Catalyst 15.11 (Radeon Crimson Edition). My script replaces the existing packaging script with an updated packaging script. It supports up to Kernel 4.4. (Official support up to Kernel 3.19)

I have adapted the AMD driver to the Kernel 4.4 (rc3). For the moment it works for Kernel 4.4-rc3. Unfortunately the AMD driver has a compatibility issue in combination with the GNOME Desktopmanager and X-Server. As a workaround, I recommend for GNOME another Desktopmanager such as lightdm until the issue is hopefully fixed.

Resolved Issues:

  • [SWDEV-55204] Stuttering when running glxgears with VSync enabled
  • [SWDEV-7339] Intermittent mouse cursor corruption

Bruno Friedmann will build the new RPM packages in the fglrx repository. Stay tune!

If you find any issue with the driver. Don’t hesitate to contact me. I am in contact with AMD and can forward your issue to the right place. Feedback are welcome.

A report of your system is very helpful beside your feedback. You can generate it with the script:
su -c 'sh makerpm-amd-15.11.sh -ur'

Have a lot of fun!

    Has there been any indication or estimate on fixing Gnome compatibility? Thanks for all the work you do!

      ^++. It would be nice to test out whether or not the proprietary drivers help with overall performance and stability. Not to say the OSS doesn’t do a good job, it would just be nice to try. Switching managers is not in the cards at the moment as I don’t have the time.

    This problem remains. I have two monitors HP25vx and my graphics is Radeon HD 6770.
