Catalyst driver 14.8 has been "quietly" made available...

Not on the main driver selection pages on AMD's site though.

Saw this via Phoronix: http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=MTc2MzM

But here's a link to AMD's site for the driver: http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/embedded?os=Linux+x86&rev=13.151

No way to use gdm? What is the latest working version with gdm?

Yes, I'm experiencing exactly the same issue. The second screen (the primary display in my setup) is completely unusable, with a totally garbled screen. Disabling Tear Free does indeed fix the issue, so thanks for that tip!

@bheinks No, I'm experiencing exactly the same isse. The second screen (the primary display in my setup) is completely unusable, with a totally garbled screen. Disabling Tear Free does indeed fix the issue, so thanks for that tip!

Why is development of the Linux Catalyst driver so incredibly slow and so buggy? The Windows drivers just work, no hassle.

Is anyone else experiencing graphical glitches with a dual head setup? It makes my second monitor completely unusable. A workaround has been to disable Tear Free at the cost of some obvious tearing in video playback and games.

There's a bug in linux 3.14.2:
https://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?do=details&action=details.addvote&task_id=40171

Temporary workaround is to downgrade linux and linux-headers to 3.14.1 or use gcc from [testing]. The first solution should be imho safer. You can find 3.14.1 at arm:

x86_64:

updated to 14.4-10, catalyst 14.4 stable:
- xserver 1.15 support
(gotjazz wrote: little warning though - if you use xbmc, get sdl-nobackingstore from the AUR or you'll have tearing during video playback with xorg 1.15)
- many fixes here and there
