      A little script to install it somewhere else - but you need new Xserver, missing files for Debian lenny for example:
      Code:
      #!/bin/sh
      cd /usr/src
      wget -N http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/ati-driver-installer-9-8-x86.x86_64.run
      wget -N http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/restricted/f/fglrx-installer/fglrx-installer_8.660.orig.tar.gz
      DIR_OLD=fglrx.old
      DIR_NEW=fglrx.new
      rm -rf "$DIR_OLD" "$DIR_NEW"
      mkdir "$DIR_OLD" "$DIR_NEW"
      sh ati-driver-installer-9-8-x86.x86_64.run --extract "$DIR_OLD"
      tar -C "$DIR_NEW" -zvxf fglrx-installer_8.660.orig.tar.gz
      cp "$DIR_OLD"/* "$DIR_NEW"
      cp -r "$DIR_OLD"/setup.data "$DIR_NEW"
      cd "$DIR_NEW"
      wget -qO- "http://phorogit.com/index.php?p=fglrx-packaging.git&dl=targz"|tar zxv
      mv -v fglrx-packaging packages
      rm -rf packages/ArchLinux
      mkdir common
      mv -v etc lib opt usr common
      cp -r ../"$DIR_OLD"/packages/ATI packages
      ./ati-installer.sh 8.66 --install
      Edit: --install option fixed, you can replace that line with the one you usually use to create deb/rpm or whatever.

        Awesome!! The annoying 'X freeze when killed' bug is fixed!

          Wait, 10 hours since the release and still nobody is bitching about bugs? Weird

          Anyway, I've modified the 9.8 ebuild to use this tar.bz2 and it seems to be a decent release. It works with 2.6.31-rc8 and Oblivion works in wine without tricks (no dlls from directx, no registry edits).

          I still can't get gdm to stop (it hangs the computer if I try) and xv still shows washed colors, but other than that no complaints. I still prefer the open source driver for daily usage, though.

            Nvidia Fan-boys run out of arguments!

            like Kano big Nvidia fan-boy but no criticism right now.

            now we only need an OpenCL/opengl/shader project to speed up viedeos Linux users sould give a fuck abaut UVD2...

              Most drawbacks with fglrx are wine issues now (best compare the same apps/games with nvidia card and same wine version), also non working xv without flickering and nothing to compete with vdpau which would be officially supported - unofficial benchmarks are really funny when nobody can verify em. But at least you see a picture with fglrx in U now - and with my hack or a simple mod somewhere else too.

                  So Xv is still broken then I'll stick to the open source drivers.

                    Xv is not broken. It just doesn't offer Vsync.

                      ... or correct colors.

                        ... or in other words: useless.

                        Edit:
                        Just installed the new driver on Gentoo. Seems to work.

                          installed karmic to try it out, seems much improved - compiz + mplayer is working flawlessly so far, nexuiz and sauerbraten also worked well with compositing on.

                            But the 1-2s freezes when maximizing windows/etc. are still there.

                              I don't think this will ever be fixed. It's been like that for at least 14 driver releases (like the xv-showing-washed-colors issue) and several xorg releases. Some blame xorg, some blame ATI and nobody finds a solution valid for Intel and ATI cards.

                              So the options are patching xorg, using the open source driver (works great with 2D effects) or disabling composite. Waiting for a driver to fix this is too optimistic.
