Radeon HD 4350 catalyst driver - which one works best?

I have a Radeon HD 4350, what version of the catalyst driver should I use? I am currently using 9.11. When adjusting window behavior in KDE, I the system will hang and will not respond at all, I have to do a hard reset to get it back up. Looking through /var/log/debug I see
Dec 17 09:34:59 shiz kernel: fglrx_pci 0000:01:00.0: irq 28 for MSI/MSI-X
so it leads me to believe that it is something with the driver. It is a new card, and a fresh install of slackware 13.

I'm using 9.11 on -current with no problems. However when I wasn't using current I used 9.10 with none of those problems, give it a try.

I've used 9.11 and 9.10 without issues on Slackware 13 with an HD4350. It's possible that there's some incompatibility between your card, your driver, and the rest of the system, though, so having it work for others doesn't necessarily mean much. Catalyst 9.12 is now out, so it might be worth giving that version a shot.
