    Yep - I was hoping for a preview release and jumped the gun in my excitement (oops, sorry!). I can't change the name of my thread, but if someone could delete it, that would be good. :)

    Unfortunately I have to reverse engineer the mobo model/version from the command-line, as it's on a different floor and I'd have to open it up or reboot it. :)

    I believe it's an ASUS A7N8X...

    I've been running this board in a server for about a month now and it's been great. I did have a small problem recently where the computer wouldn't POST past the board's BIOS, but it turned out to...

    64bit + >3.6GB RAM = boom

    Wow... I'm starting to get a little frustrated with the whole state of 64-bit computing. I'm not sure if the problem lies in the Linux kernel or ATI's drivers, but I'm guessing the latter. Of...

    What's funny is that there's a bunch of NOPped out code in ATI's latest around the signature stuff. Maybe they just cleared out the check instead of releasing new drivers. :)

    BTW, I think his...

    Not long, though I'm surprised that it works. I thought that it would fail somehow and I've have to insert a null check in atiddxSave64BitBAR instead, but it's been working for me for many hours now...

    UPDATE: Looks like a problem with permissions on /tmp. The X server starts fine, but gdm keeps cycling it because it couldn't start and ends up locking it up. After fixing the permissions,...

    Great - I updated the instructions to give people without 8.39.4 a way to do it. If I have time, I'll whip up a small autopatching program to do it automatically.

    Can you try this (you might need to yum -y install gcc first):

    cd /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers

    objdump -D fglrx_drv.so.orig | grep "Save64"

    Paste the output here.

    Yes, this is for 8.39.4 only. Unfortunately, each version will require a specific fix.

    If ATI hasn't fixed it by the next version, I'll work on a generic patcher that can fix it in a cleaner way.

    Patch for fglrx & fc7 64-bit

    I've been frustrated that I couldn't use fglrx on my FC7 64-bit box, so I whipped out the trusty disassembler and patched out what I believe is the buggy code.
