News, the build -3 now should build perfectly with kernel 3.2+ & 3.3, Thanks to Sebastian for the patch

Quick Résumé about 12.2

AMD rename their installer, So Sebastian did the same for his script.

I will just copy/google translate/paste here the comment made by Sebastian Siebert on his blog :


AMD has released some time later the driver. The only reason was the fact that AMD has jumped over the version 8.94 because of possible driver issues with some graphics cards. I’ve also updated the packaging script because AMD had unfortunately not include my changes in their AMD installer. (Remember? No time? Who knows … Especially since AMD closed mailing list was down.) It affects even the atieventsd.sh init script. There has been specified for the start of the script in run level 3 and also the XDM (X window manager) provided what IMHO makes no sense. On the other hand, the power mode script (ati powermode.sh) kicked out for good. Since the driver already supports the suspend mode and does not require a helper script anymore.
Driver support now AMD Radeon HD 7950, HD 7970, HD 7990
