Hello ... !!
I had the pleasure to testing the Last VL7-64 RC1 at the same Machine, without problems I installed some packages Like, the Skype, Wine. everything well : D very nice. the reason I mention that is because the same software on VL7-64 B2 fails , and the kernel 3.1.5 was unstable on my laptop.
Only thing this time, I had to download kernel-3.1.10-src-stripped-x86_64-1vl70.txz and install it to compile the driver module of ati-driver-installer-11-12-x86.x86_64.run
I think so kernel-src was present in the previous version
For me it is necessary to use the HDMI output .. and this ati-driver version was installed correctly. The latest version fails.
Finally I am pleased once again to use Linux, Vlocity is very nice, the new art-work too..
