Catalyst Omega Driver 14.501 and Ubuntu 14.10

Discussion created by jtrudeau on Jan 29, 2015



For the Linux Catalyst Omega driver we have had reports of a problem, which we have replicated.


Ubuntu 14.10 is not supported. It is possible to install the driver on a system using Ubuntu 14.10. If you do, you may get a black screen after rebooting.


Just be careful to install the driver only if you have a supported operating systems.
