ATI Catalyst 7.11 Linux Released!

A new version of the ATI/AMD Linux display driver was released last night for both x86 and x86_64 platforms. This release is a bit special, as it includes support for Ubuntu 7.10. Moreover, starting with this version, the ATI Catalyst software suite does not support the Linux kernel 2.4, XFree86 4.3 software and workstation hardware.

Issues resolved in this release:

  • Launching a new terminal un RHEL5 32bit version no longer results in inconsistent background colors appearing each time the window is minimized and maximized
  • 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
