I still have issues with suspending in Ubuntu 7.10 (for me, it suspends successfully, but it gives a black screen on restore. Some others on the Phoronix forums say they can't even suspend successfully.) Also, like Catalyst 7.12, vlc seems to go haywire. Your mileage may vary.*
- What's your kernel version?
- Ubuntu 7.10, kernel 2.6.22-14-generic (Ubuntu 7.10 is up to date so latest stock kernel. I should note that this isn't a clean Ubuntu install; however I haven't done anything too radical.)
On kubuntu 7.10 I experienced an unmet dependency with this driver (8.01) during installation. Creating the deb-files, installing them and executing
module-assistant build fglrx
in /usr/src/, where I would have expected
(since all other deb-files contained the serial-no. 8.452.1)
- control (line 7)
Depends: xorg-driver-fglrx (= 8.433-1)
what failed of course, trying sudo module-assistant install fglrx since the current version is 8.45. Changing it manually to ..(>= 8.433-1) solved the problem. Maybe this helps other guys, who experience the same problem. I also opened a ticket on the fglrx-bugzilla. FMayer 13:28, 9 February 2008 (CST)
