What John says has held true up through the last two ati-driver

8.9 driver works fine. The 8.10 and 8.11 driver suffer from performance
issues
.. and .. the 8.11 driver will not build on anything later than 10.3 due to
missing code. See:

And for the record David, 8.12 is out TODAY

Sorry for the late reply.

I've been dealing with this little pneumonia thing that has damn near
killed
me. One hell of a Christmas present ;-)

The 8.12 driver has issues. 3D is broken and that funky performance
issue that
we have seen in now 8.10-8.12 is still there. I have posted separately about
that and I've talked with Dirsch about it. More growing pains I guess.
Evidently ATI/AMD doesn't have time for these Linux issues right now. So I'm
not sure whether I should be looking forward to 9-1, or just real damn happy
that 8-9 is still working flawlessly for me.
