      and my pc is definitely no laptop :]

      i wonder if their laptop fix will do the trick for me :]
      Why did you have to shutdown your X session when building the drivers? You should be able to run --buildpkg from X.

        okay... this is a bit pain in the ass.... forget the AGILX and etc...
        every time i do installation or upgrading driver from ATI on my laptops *ALWAYS* i get OpenGL = MESA.

        can someone tell me why?
        everytime i have to go through hoops to get the ATI Renderer.

        any help/hints are much apreciated.

        thanks

          Can you elaborate a bit more? I seem to never run into that issue.

          BTW, a few more thoughts on the control center @ http://www.michaellarabel.com/?k=blog&i=135

            well the composite=false is not being read right after update for whatever reason after upgrade, however second killall Xorg - seem to do the job.

            so what exactly new in this driver aside a different window displying system info on the video card?

              package...on gentoo? :>

              i shut X down to merge the drivers and reload the kernel module. (got ebuilds almost ready right now, if anyone's interested :] )

                In ubuntu you don't have to change anything, just uninstall the old debs and install the new ones as well as the new kernel module. and then reboot. It helps if you give a sudo module-assistant clean fglrx before you build the new kernel module, so that it can build it from the new driver and not the old one.

                    Run

                    ./ati-driver-8.35.5-name.run --buildpkg Fedora/F7

                    and it will generate RPMs in your working directory.

                          That's a new problem with Fedora Rawhide since I last updated. Due to Xorg updates in Rawhide, fglrx 8.35 driver yields:

                          (EE) Failed to load module "fglrx" (module requirement mismatch, 0)

                            Hmm.. should this update solve the problems I'm having with my Radeon 9550? I seem to get a bit furthur in the install process... by 'furthur' I mean this time I actually get to the boot screen before X crashes

                              for reference... here's the problem I was having:

                              http://phoronix.net/forums/showthread.php?t=1376

                              I know I was likely experiencing one of the common bugs... so I'm just wondering if it was fixed I guess.

                                Try updating your FC6 system and then installing the drivers.
