ATi Linux Driver 8.31.5

Posted on Sunday, November 19 2006 @ 00:37:14 CET by

System Requirements
  • XOrg 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, or 7.1; XFree86 version 4.3
  • Linux kernel 2.4 or higher
  • glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
  • POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D applications
  • The AMD Proprietary Linux driver no longer provides precompiled Kernel Modules; all installations require GCC compiler and kernel-headers or kernel-source in order to enable 2D and 3D acceleration.
Resolved Issues
  • Setting the display resolution to 400x300 or less no longer results in the mouse pointer not being able to move across the entire desktop.
  • The graphics driver no longer hangs the system shortly after the X Server is started on Red Hat enterprise Linux 3 system running Uniprocessor kernels.
  • Playing a media file under any distribution with X Server 6.9 or greater no longer results in a brief pause or video tearing when resizing the video window or running the mouse pointer over the video player window.
  • Using aticonfig to set the TV format to PAL-COMB-N no longer fails to update the X Server configuration file.
Known Issues
  • Attempting to install the AMD Proprietary Linux driver on distributions that have updated certain 3D components outside of the stock XOrg 6.8.2 may result in the driver not initializing 3D applications properly.
  • Loading the XVideo Extension on 64-bit Xorg 6.9+ systems causes the X Server to segfault on launch with Radeon X1K products.
  • A system hang may occur when attempting to resume from hibernation mode.
