Is this just an artifact of the _beta11 prematurely marked as stable, but I now get the AMD Testing use only watermark on my RadeonHD 5770 video card...

I would think this video card is still supported by fglrx?

Should ATI beta drivers be marked stable for Gentoo?

Should I just do USE=disable-watermark and look the other way?

Put this in a file (like watermark.sh)
Code:
#!/bin/sh
DRIVER=/usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/fglrx_drv.so
for x in $(objdump -d $DRIVER|awk '/call/&&/EnableLogo/{print "\\x"$2"\\x"$3"\\x"$4"\\x"$5"\\x"$6}'); do
sed -i "s/$x/\x90\x90\x90\x90\x90/g" $DRIVER
done

and then run
Code:

sudo sh watermark.sh


and then reboot.

:-)

Edit: the 13.1 drivers are far, far better though.

Yeah, that's what USE=disable-watermark does, so that means I should do that and look the other way? :)

I just wonder when 13.1 will be marked as stable.
