However, xf86-video-intel 2.20.2 works quite well with Catalyst 12.6.
Comment 5 zhoujingmiller 2012-08-05 07:59:36 CDT
My speculation is that Intel changed/added new PCI-ID's in the release and FGLRX did not recognize them.

This message is a reminder that your bug is marked as Catalyst 12.6.

The current legacy Catalyst version is 13.1.
The current Catalyst version is 13.4.
The current Catalyst beta version is 13.8.

Approximately 7 days from now the Bugzilla administrator will be removing the 12.6 version. At that time your bug will be CLOSED as WONTFIX.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue. However, the Bugzilla administrator provides this as a unofficial, free service to AMD customers, and I like to keep my systems neat and tidy. If you would like to keep your bug from being closed, please try a new Catalyst version and update the 'version' field if the issue still occurs.

If you are unable to update the version, please make a comment and someone will change it for you.
Comment 9 Michael Cronenworth 2013-08-22 13:57:15 CDT
This bug is being closed due to the 'version' being 12.6 after 7 days of the previous closure notice.

Thank you for your bug report.
