Hello...I'm trying to get the latest ATI Catalyst Pro driver working on Fedora 20 with kernel 3.14 / 3.15. It doesn't work.  I have seen a workaround to get FGLRX installed on Fedora 20 for consumer GPUs :

http://bluehatrecord.wordpress.com/2014/05/10/installing-the-proprietary-amd-catalyst-14-4-fglrx-driver-on-fedora-20-with-kernel-3-14/

I can use this method to install FGLRX working on Linux but I don't get a working stereo emitter sync signal after enabling quad buffer stereo.

Any suggestions?

UPDATE:

I'm using kernel 3.15.5.

OpenGL quad buffer stereo DOES work on Fedora 20 after using the kernel 3.14+ patch to install fglrx.

I discovered this by accident after installing the Google Chrome web browser.

The emitter became active after Chrome was started. 

Even though GetBooleanv(GL_STEREO, &gbStereoEnabled) kept returning false, I used glutDisplayMode( GLUT_STEREO) anyway in my code and the emitter became active upon program execution.

Here's the deal. In Windows, the emitter becomes active after the computer boots up.  It does not in Linux.
