Well joining the club, just got my 7950 up and running in Fedora. Some of the menu stuff in the control center sucks, sorry. Got it working well enough though, HDMI did 1080p but my CRT still picks up the botched EDID. You force EDID through xorg?

Well here's something you should include in your gide.

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1586757&postcount=7

I know this works, took me forever to find a proper watermark removal for Fedora. Not sure about other distributions, though it should work given that the path is correct for the driver. Granted this only happens on beta drivers, just thought somebody here might like to have this. Anyways, really lovin this thread.

Are these drivers compatible with xorg 1.14?

 

EDIT: NOPE

 

System Requirements:
Before attempting to install the AMD Catalyst™ Linux Graphics Driver, the following software must be installed:

  • Xorg/Xserver 7.4 and above (up to 1.13)
  • Linux kernel 2.6 or above (up to 3.8)
  • glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
  • POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D applications

 

 

 

Guess I am still stuck with xf86-video-ati still...lol. My fault for upgrading xorg without checking compatibility....

If you still use Arch, set up the xorg113 repo and revert to that. That way you can still use the Catalyst driver.

Thanks! I was aware of that, but had forgotten lol.... I decided not to downgrade and just run "radeon", open-source drivers. Honestly, it's not as bad as I thought. I run some Linux games, open-source and those that I have bought on Steam (FTL, Killing Floor, etc.). I am just going to keep running the open-source driver for now since I see no reason for running the binary driver (and the headaches that come with such). Of course, this works for me because I don't really play much games, so I don't own "graphics intensive" games. :)

Rant

Im having some problems getting any decent gaming going on linux atm

imo its fairly shambolic still. Im a big linux fan and i really look forward to the day i can use an alternative to windows but i still cant use it with confidence rolleyes.gif

i think its probably mostly fglrx related in nearly all cases but so what does that mean? that anyone who hasn't got an nvidia or intel suffers? My crappy ass G45 intel graphics (per-historic) never falter on Linux running on my laptop although the performance is to low to run almost any game with the ones it can it does and steam never shuts or the desktop never crashes. Im even considering selling my recent supposed steam box / HTPC build with its a10-5800k and buying a haswell hd5000 ! but of course it would be cheaper to get myself a copy of windows 8 and have done with it mad.gif


So far i have tried:

Cinnamon
KDE 32bit / 64bit
Mate
xfce 32bit / 64bit


Steam will sometimes just close for no reason silently. Desura is no better often closing for no reason and half the linux games i installed through that wont run but run fine in windows?
non of them apart from xfce manage to keep steam open day after day. And to top it off the most played game of mine on windows (killing floor) has terrible performance even on xfce

now im sure its 80-90% amd related. But i have the feeling through poorly timed updates that the average users gpu drivers are going to get properly screwed (like they have for me on many occasions when mint decided to nestle a low 3 rating update at the bottom of 90 others for a mesa update over the last two years)

off topic but..
i stare at steam looking for a game that I want and I cant find any? OK so there are some great indie titles but how long until rising storm is ported for example.. its possible and the same team ported killing floor, red orchestra 1 is out so i would of expected a parallel release . will we see the likes of GRID, Tomb raider ? probably not as they are DX11 but what about all the recent unreal engine games that could port ? not a sniff online of any evidence that they are.
I also visit AMD's linux driver page every few months.. hardly any news to speak of.

so sadly, after investing many hours trying to get my hardware to play ball with graphics *and i include a faultless never crashing desktop i cant recommend Linux today for gaming at all when using an AMD card

On the other hand, use Intel or Nvidia and you're off gaming as soon as they're done downloading thumb.gif

I have never, and will never recommend AMD for gaming on Linux or even at all for that matter. Not until there is a huge overhaul with either the official or open source drivers. It's been pretty much the same story since the ATI days before the rebranding. It was a pain back then and it still is. Possible? Sure, but still way to complicated for the average user. Especially when compared to how easy Intel drivers ( included in most average kernels ) or Nvidia drivers install.

whats really interesting is that for the first time i tried the open source drivers (much bigger download than the official ones?) and low and behold on my stock A10 running 8gb of 1600mhz ram i have pretty good performance on killing floor (admittedly its only connected to a 720p monitor but thats the arena an a10 will shine and thats not the best port. i might try the open source drivers for my 5850 tomorrow @ 1080p and see if i get at least playable performance! as before i was hitting between 5-25 fps with 3-5 second pauses! (windows is more like a constant 80-90fps)

it still wouldnt be anywhere near windows i imagine but if cinnamon + kde stop crashing then thats a real plus as i really do like where mint cinnamon is heading

indeed.

I was rather shocked when Linus kicked off at Nvidia over their FOSS support given how bad ATI/AMD are.
