Hey Christmas time around! AMD give us a new version of fglrx, and Sebastian Siebert just release his script yesterday night.
So I’ve prepared the new version available for openSUSE 11.4, 12.1, 12.2, 12.3, 13.1, 13.2 and Tumbleweed.
Sebastian’s script contain a special patch for supporting kernel up to 3.17 and 3.18 version.
I should also share Sebastian’s surprize about the fact that this version didn’t got a beta/rc cycle….
I hope this release will give better results for all of you who own an apu (especially the recent one), and also fix a number of issue with the hybrid chipset intel cpu/amd gpu embedded.
See below how to report issue on Sebastian blog.
It will be the last build for all openSUSE version below 13.1 (except if patches are needed).
In January 12.3 support will definitively end. But I will let the drivers as is so you can still use them in case of.
Installation / update
Please refer to the wiki page SDB:AMD_fgrlx
New packaging schema
The driver is now splitted into different rpm that all need to be installed. Normally the necessary Require field is there and should happen automatically.
My advise is to check if you have them all installed.
for 32 bits
zypper install fglrx_xpic fglrx_core fglrx_graphics fglrx_amdcccle fglrx_opencl
for 64 bits
zypper install fglrx64_xpic fglrx64_core fglrx64_graphics fglrx64_amdcccle fglrx64_opencl
A notice for Tumbleweed users
The new release has now its package correctly named, previously they were called SUSEFACTORY, with the new version the package will contain SUSETUMBLEWEED in their name
