Latest ATI Linux Driver Introduces Support for Ubuntu 9.04
Yet another stable version of the ATI/AMD Linux display driver was released last night, for both x86 and x86_64 architectures. With version 9.4, ATI Catalyst introduces early support for the upcoming Ubuntu 9.04 operating system and full support for the recently released Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.3. Users of the Release Candidate of Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) can install and test this new ATI driver via the "Hardware Drivers" utility in the System -> Administration menu. Without further introduction, we invite you to take a look at the resolved issues of the new ATI Catalyst 9.4 video driver from AMD:

· Fixed a segmentation fault issue when X was stopped in dual-head mode;
· Fixed indirect rendering in Novel's SUSE Enterprise 10.1;
· When 3D programs are running, errors will no longer be reported in dmesg;
· Fixed video playback issues, that caused the system to freeze, when resuming from S3/S4;
· Repaired the default button for Warning Dialogue in the preferences of the Catalyst Control Center;
· Improved gamma values in the Catalyst Control Center;
· The HDTV Support page of the Catalyst Control Center correctly displays the formats now.


· X.Org 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3 or 7.4
· Linux kernel 2.6 or higher
· glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
· Support for POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) is necessary for 3D programs
· The following packages should be installed on your system: XFree86-Mesa-libGL, libstdc++, libgcc, XFree86-libs, fontconfig, freetype and zlib.

Supported operating systems:

· Red Hat Enterprise Linux
· Novell SUSE Enterprise Linux
· Ubuntu Linux
