    Catalyst 5.1:
    All you ATi Radeon owners out there listen up, there are brand spanking new Catalyst 5.1 drivers out today for your downloading pleasure. The drivers weigh in at 22.8MB and have a host of fixes including:

    *Second head in Dual Head system is no longer corrupt during login screen
    *Display corruption is no longer seen when switching between X-Windows and the Linux text console, and back to X-Windows

    *Video playback in Dual Head mode no longer results in an error message being displayed, or the player failing to start

    *PCI-Express systems no longer hang after running 3D Applications for long periods
    *3D Applications no longer hang on RHEL 3.0 with 1GB or more memory installed

    *Stopping and restarting the X server no longer results in memory leaks or hangs on PCI-Express systems
    Here's the link to the article.
    Here's the link to ATi's driver section

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    Wait. One month it gets posted in Software World, now it's in Hardware World. WTF?

    I'd say this is drivers, hence software for hardware
