ATI Catalyst Display Driver 8.2

February 24th, 2008 by Crusader

Missed this earlier: AMD has released new ATI Catalyst display drivers for Linux; the release notes delineate the following changes:

  • The Xserver no longer crashes if the screen resolution is changed in horizontal or vertical desktop setup with a monitor that does not support DDC.
  • The Xserver no longer segfaults or fails to initialize DRI if a BusID was specified in an unexpected format in xorg.conf.
  • The Xserver no longer freezes on shutdown if atieventsd is running.
  • The first OpenGL application run after starting a session on Xserver version 1.4 no longer hangs.
