    I am impressed with the instant response! I am thinking of reverting to a pre-8.20 release, but I am not sure whether it would compile with current software.

      It probably won't compile if you're using a recent kernel, etc... You will likely also run into problems if you're using X 6.9 or newer.

        Hi Michael and others:

        I decided to try Debian Etch. Everything loaded fine, but when I restarted the computer, the X wouldn't start. I wasn't really that surprised because FC6 wouldn't start X either. I was able to edit the xorg.conf and gave it the "radeon" driver, then grabbed the proprietary drivers from Livna. I'm not quite sure how to accomplish this from a command line in Debian. Any suggestions? Alternately, I guess I could download the drivers from another computer and burn them to a CD to use from a command line in Debian.

          I am not much of a Debian user myself, but what happens if you become root and then vim /etc/X11/xorg.conf and update it? Or from any third party Debian repositories tapping into already built fglrx packages.

            Michael, I have created torrents with working RPMS (For FC6) and Working Extracted installation files. I have created these for both 8.30.3 and 8.29.6 - Would it be ok for me to post these somewhere appropriate on your forum?

              Easton,

              So they're basically the same as Livna or they are just the generated RPMs on your kernel from the installer? Make a new thread and I'll take a look at them.

                The RPMS are built for my Kernel 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 (32Bit). I have also repaired the extracted installation files, for those who keep getting file not found errors etc, and can't for reasons beyond our control, compile source code etc.

                  What were the specific changes though that you had made to the installation files? The torrent doesn't seem to be working right now.

                    Alot of people downloading, not so many seeding. For both 8.29.6 and 8.30.3 I compiled the control panel interface, and tested it on a few other distros without any problems (debian, mandriva, suse and FC6). I ammended the ati-install.sh file for 8.29.6, so that people with X.Org 7.1.X wouldn't get the file not found errors. I also ammeded the directory structure for 8.30.3.

                      Easton please post them on Megauploads or RapidShare, right now there is no seeding at all...

                      I have a problem while using the script for building F6 RPMs:

                      generating package: custom-package/FC6
                      ./packages/custom-package/ati-packager.sh: line 195: /etc/profile.d/qt.sh: No such file or directory
                      Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install

                      What is the problem??Your RPMs are solving the issue?

                      Thanks for reply

                        The RPMs are simply generated RPMs from the installer.

                        Your qt problem is you need to install qt and qt-devel...

                            By packets do you mean RPMs? The qt 3.3 RPM and the qt-devel 3.3 RPM. They should be available from the Core repository.
