    Default New ATI driver

    I see that there are new ATI driver rpms in this folder:

    http://geeko.ioda.net/mirror/amd-fgl...leweed/x86_64/

    Has anyone tried them with the latest Tumbleweed?

    Thanks

    If you mean the new 15.5 release (15.101.1001), you should not.
    According to https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...t-is-available this driver doesn't work with Xorg 1.17 as included in Tumbleweed. You should rather use the 15.3 Beta instead (use Sebastian Siebert's script to create RPM packages and install them, see https://lizards.opensuse.org/2015/04...-is-available/).
    Warning: This driver based on an old development fork and does not support X-Server 1.17 on Tumbleweed. GNOME Desktopmanager (gdm) is also broken for the moment. My suggestion for you, stay on the latest AMD Catalyst 15.3 Beta.

    Shouldn't be necessary.
    The latest version of the driver does support Xorg 1.17.
    (this thread if from June, there has been a new driver release since then... )

    You would have to compile it yourself.
    And that would probably break other stuff.
