Status of the AMD driver (fglrx) and Fedora 7



Hello,

Version 8.36.5 of the AMD driver is incompatible with the Xorg version
shipped with Fedora 7, and fortunately 8.37.6 fixed this. However it has
other bugs in the closed-source part which AMD does not permit to be
modified and so it can't be fixed.

AMD has no plans to release an updated driver - The next functional
driver will be version 8.38.X, to be released sometime this June. If you
are using a ATI/AMD card that isn't supported by the open-source
drivers, please consider staying with Fedora Core 6 until the end of the
month when 8.38.X is available.
