[opensuse] ATI/AMD Catalyst 8.9 Driver Available

Listmates,

The new ATI Radeon driver is out.

http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/linux/linux-radeon.html

First reports: Interesting new messages are written to
/var/log/Xorg.0.log
while it's running. (Magic Cookie ....) The messages are written frequently
every second or so. Enough that if you have the log file open in kate, you have
to reload almost immediately.

I have never seen this before with a fglrx driver. Also notable is that
glxgears frame rates are 300-400 frame rates slower than with the 8-8 driver. I
presume the decrease in frame rate is due to activity of the driver writing the
new output to the Xorg.0.log file. Other than that it seems to run fine.

Let me know your experiences with the driver and also, see if you can
confirm
the additional output to Xorg.0.log.

Thanks.
