Seems like it's withdrawn now because of the remaining "AMD Testing Use Only" watermark. The watermark can only be seen if you used --buildpkg switch for a distro (if you installed it from a package).

If you used the GUI installer you can't see the watermark. The reason of the bug is whether the /etc/ati/signature file is automatically generated or not. Using the GUI installer it is.

There is already a workaround. Since then the driver is withdrawn so there could be other problems as well.
