I love you guys for putting this wiki entry together and maintaining the repositories with the Catalyst driver and the patched mplayer with support for hardware acceleration. It would have taken me many, many hours to make it work as flawlessly as it does.

XvBA-Video Repository

Note to editors: DO NOT REMOVE that since it works and helps users getting it working!

Why keep it around if the information is obsolete now?

I think the page needs a good portion of reconstruction. The "Installation" chapter is bloated and cluttered with alot of information one does not necessarily need. Maybe its a good idea to make an new page about the usage details for the script catalyst_build_module. "Troubleshooting" is cluttered and one time even doubled. I am going to make the page more straightforward and vanilla, putting any additional info in new chapters or pages. If no one complains, that is. --Doc Angelo 06:06, 22 August 2010 (EDT)

I made some cleanup...

  • Removed about 20% of article (mainly repo section).
  • Troubleshooting isn't doubled now but still a little bit cluttered (still i think it got very usefull infos).
  • catalyst_build_module script info is simpler and shorter.

After referring to this article many times for my own use, I believe the place to start is dividing between 'fglrx from AUR' and 'fglrx straight from binary'. Maybe going so far as to making a separate page. And then the bloat can tackled with gusto, with some things reorganized and others clarified/reworded. I will work on this myself if I find the time... --t1nk3r3r Since previous efforts have stalled, I will take upon myself to clean up this article. I have already drawn up an outline with only four main sections while retaining as much info as possible. Major changes in the next several days... --t1nk3r3r 4 August 2011 (PST)

deleted note on nomodeset warning

the nomodeset option si mandatory using catalyst, cause this driver doesn't support kms. The note is useless. 4javier 07:50, 25 April 2011 (EDT)
