ATI Catalyst Linux 7.11 driver
+
Phenomenal brakedown of the topic, you should write for me too!
 
+
Release date: 21 November, 2007
+
 
+
The new driver release carry a new name (the same used for the Windows counterpart) and version numbering (7.11 means year 2007, month November). It is still a proprietary closed-source driver.
+
 
+
The main improvement is the full support to 2.6.23 kernel. This should solve the Suspend/Hibernation problems recently found due to the incompatibilities between older fglrx driver and SLUB memory allocator (default in the 2.6.23 kernel).
+
 
+
==New Features==
+
*This release of the ATI Catalyst™ Linux driver introduces early-look support for the following new operating systems:
+
 
+
    * Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.6 (tested with Snapshot 6)
+
    * Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.1 (tested with Snapshot 7)
+
    * Ubuntu 7.10
+
    * RedFlag 6.0 DT (tested with RC)
+
    * OpenSUSE 10.3 (tested with RC1)
+
 
+
==Issues Resolved==
+
* Corruption for example in the Gnome Terminal or on the Gnome desktop background is no longer observed on XPress 1200 series graphics hardware.
+
* The kernel module is now working on kernel version 2.6.23
+
* An error message no longer appears during installation if dash is used as /bin/sh
+
 
+
==Known Issues==
+
* There is no support for video playback on the second head in dual head mode. Further details can be found in topic number 737-26985
+
* Desktop corruption may be noticed when dragging the overlay/video when using dual-display mode. Further details can be found in topic number 737-29578
+
* A black screen may be observed on some hardware when switching to the console or leaving the X window system when a Vesa framebuffer console driver is used. Further details can be found in topic number 737-30687
