    If you don't mind reinstalling from scratch, this automated installer may help:

    http://xvbat.sourceforge.net/d-i/

    In general, I recommend installing packages built with
    Code:
    ./*.run --buildpkg ...
    If you're not willing to reinstall and you have trouble building packages yourself, distributed with the above installer are repository archives for Lucid, Maverick, and Natty. The Natty archive includes Catalyst 11-4 through 11-8.

      I guess the restricted drivers procedure screws up some stuff?
      It probably leaves behind configuration information in /etc/ati/ . You should purge the packages according to the 'Removing Catalyst..' section in the ATI wiki.

        Scrolling in chromium is perfectly smooth here with fglrx (tear free on) and kwin desktop effects.
        On other hand, in firefox, it is very choppy. But I don't use firefox so I don't care

          fedora has a wonderfull support for nv/ati drivers using kmod package .
          it is always up-2-date few days after new driver or kernel is out , there is nothing to do to have it well doing .
