      Just a tiny sidenote: AMD is also making FLOSS drivers for the non-gamers/profesionals and gamers that work with the latest X.org and the supported, olders cards one can buy used for a couple of bucks.

      Gamers have always used older OS's (WinXP) and profesionals always used proven and thus also older software anyway.

      I'm not gonna bitch this time around

          Just tried buildpkg on Karmic x86_64 and it failed.

          Code:
          execstack -c debian/fglrx-amdcccle/usr/lib/bin/amdcccle
          execstack: cannot open "debian/fglrx-amdcccle/usr/lib/bin/amdcccle": No such file or directory
          make: *** [binary-install/fglrx-amdcccle] Error 1
          dpkg-buildpackage: error: fakeroot debian/rules binary gave error exit status 2
          Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.NlzaTl

            It's basically ati's fault when they do not update the packageing which is there. I have a script i could update that on my own if i wanted, but of course i have got no write access to the webserver. Usually the Ubuntu packageing was compatible with Debian too, just lucid began to use a different way - call it similar to Gentoo if you like als you can switch the active driver without uninstalling. What you did is not much different to what i did, i just set the target dir to copy differently for squeeze and touch a file which is usally in the older but not in the new xorg dir, that's all. Just that you have to know that do do first - that's nothing a noob about fglrx would try first Basically you would not need the script for 10-4 as the prerelease is alreay in the Debian repository but for future drivers this should work. In a "perfect" ati world i just update the pci id whitelist and change the default version, but that's very unlikely that this happens when ati is involved. ati means extra work in most cases...

              Just did. It tried to build Ubuntu/intrepid on my Karmic. Is it supposed to do that?

                i have a mobility radeon hd 5470, lucid, fglrx from repo.
                should i give it a try? is the official faster, harder, better then the fglrx from lucid repo?

                  Are ATI aware of this bug? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...6?comments=all

                  It's been around for years now and it's the main reason I'm using the open source drivers rather than fglrx. A lot of people are suffering it (see 427 comments) any idea when it's going to be fixed? It's a very frustrating bug to have

                    Regarding the Compiz slow resize bug several people mentioned on here... it is no secret that they are introducing a completely new 2D acceleration architecture soon (I don't know, something within my heart tells me June is a month of joy)...
