    Linux Crimson Driver Radeon HD 6950 not supported

    mpyusko

      I am trying to upgrade to the latest Crimson Driver as my current driver seems to randomly freeze during Game or Videos.  Normal desktop use does not appear to have any issues.

       

      My Hardware configuration is

       

      AMD FX-8350

      AMD Radeon HD 6950

      Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0 (mobo)

      8GB DDR3 RAM

      Assorted Drives and Periperals

      Slackware64 14.1

       

      My most recent successful driver installed was amd-catalyst-15.9-linux-installer-15.201.1151-x86.x86_64.zip.

       

      I am currently trying to install radeon-crimson-15.11-15.30.1025.zip however during the installation process it tells me my hardware is not supported.

       

      Any thoughts why this is happening?  This is the first time I'm ever been told my GPU is not supported.  Especially when it is listed in the compatible hardware list.  Notice it is running at factory clocks,  Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB OC Edition (820/1250).  I have specs for my system below as well as the text of the installer.

       

      Thanks.
