  • 8.42.3 + fedora 8 doesn't work

    I've done a lot of searching on this and found many different possible solutions, but was hoping someone could give me more of a step-by-step howto.

    I had Fedora 7 with a kernel prior to 2.6.23 working with 8.42.3 and had compiz-fusion running perfectly. I did a fresh install of Fedora 8 and installed fglrx from livna. However, I'm not having any luck with desktop effects. I understand this is because of this new kernel version and that there is a patch available, but do I need to download the ATI installer to be able to patch? And if so, can someone walk me through the process?

    ( I know I left out a lot of details, but I did research this and am pretty sure I just need the patch. I can post specific errors, etc. if needed. )

    Many thanks,

    I may be wrong, but my understanding was that you need the patch to get 8.42 running with kernel 2.6.23 at all, and that whoever makes the livna rpms just included the patch. Did anybody get F8 and fglrx 8.42 working with compiz?
