AMD ati and kernel 3.10.17
 
so, anyone having problems with the last beta driver (13.11) and the new kernel on the current branch?, is there any work around to have this driver working on it?, i just dont wanna tried to install it and suffer to reinstall and delete files again because im pretty sure its not working right now, but who knows, any guidance please?

thanks a lot.

I am not using the proprietary drivers, but according to Phoronix the 13.11 beta has support for kernels up to version 3.11.

so i just installed the 13.11 beta driver and it seems to be working fine at the moment, the only problem i see is with chrome some titles on the tabs looks grey instead of black, thats kind of weird. maybe is already a reported bug i dont know. anyway, it looks fine, gonna tested for a while. by the way any suggestions on how to remove it?, i know there is a uninstall script in /usr/share/ati, but im not sure if it does all work or if i have to reinstall packages like mesa as some past releases of the driver. any ideas?

I'm using them with a HD7850, kernel 3.10.17 with no problem, is your video card supported by the closed source driver?

I have an Ati Radeon 7500M/7600M series, everything seems fine, except for some issues with chrome and the tabs that keep flickering.
