scarecrow Posted March 3, 2009 Report Share Posted March 3, 2009 I guess they simply got fed up waiting for proper xorg 1.5.X support, and now xorg 1.6.0 is out, but the Catalyst driver is nowhere close to working. Recently AMD released a second batch of information on their hardware to the open source community, which helps to feed into the radeonhd driver, but their closed source proprietary driver still remains, well, closed. The driver has always been second rate, but now it has gotten to the point that Arch Linux developers have decided to dump it all together. IMO it's both a brave, and 100% CORRECT decision. Linux development must go on, without waiting for the impotent AMD/Ati devs to shave the bugs in their proprietary driver (which never was a first rate one, for sure).
