            Just type in the unpacked ati package :
            sh ati-installer.sh . --install

            Be attentive : between words ati-installer.sh and --install it`s a "." (point,dot etc).

              opening the .patch file, I haven't found references to 10.2. Instead it refers 10.1. Will this patch work for 10.2?

              If so, what's the correct procedure to do so?

              I tried:
              Code:
              gtl@cpc-5564:~/Downloads$ cd ati
              gtl@cpc-5564:~/Downloads/ati$ ls
              ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run  fglrx-2.6.33.patch
              gtl@cpc-5564:~/Downloads/ati$ sh ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run --extract .
              Warning: target directory exists .
              Verifying archive integrity... All good.
              Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.702.............(...)
              gtl@cpc-5564:~/Downloads/ati$ patch -p0 fglrx-2.6.33.patch
              nothing else happens.

              Please avise,
              Thanks in advance,

                10.2 with patch & kernel 2.6.33 work perfectly.

                If so, what's the correct procedure to do so?
                how to patch it :
                cd unpacked_ati_directory
                patch -p1 < ../fglrx.2.6.33.patch
                sh ati-installer.sh . --install

                After successfully compiling restart your penguin
                If you had some errors like freeze,reboot or bug: "smp_processor preemptible" ( run terminal and type dmesg )recompile your kernel changing option from "preemptible kernel low latency desktop" to "Voluntary kernel preemption".
                Greetings.

                  So if I don't see "smp_processor preemptible", I don't have to rebuild my kernel, right? (I ask because I'm getting annoying hangs sporadically with the driver.)

                    I managed to apply the patch thanks to paproch, it installed ok, but X failed to start. Switching to radeonhd I can fire up X, properly.

                    I'm wondering how can I completely remove this driver so i can perform a clean installation. I'll edit this post to paste the link for my /var/log/Xorg.0.log in a little while.
