    Why did you have to shutdown your X session when building the drivers? You should be able to run --buildpkg from X.
    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.
