This is really getting ridiculous. There are several showstopper bugs in the driver right now. I mean, the memory leak is a nobrainer - you just don't release software with such a huge, known flaw. Than there's Xvideo which is broken since more than a year. Suspend, for crying out loud! I don't care about AIGLX (not anymore), just give me a driver capable of a bit of 3D, playing movies in acceptable quality and which is not butchering suspend/resume.
I've given up all hope on fglrx. I just hope that the radeon or radeonhd reach a usable state on R500 chipsets in the next few months.
The script does more than you might have thought, you do not need single user mode, it kills kdm/gdm or whatever, uninstalls previous driver, installs new one and patches xorg.conf. After that X is started again. The commands I told you are just to delete the driver if you do not want to use fglrx at all.
