I have not tried it out myself, but there is a patch for 2.6.33:
did anone made it to install fglrx10.2 on the new kernel 2.6.33? I can build teh *.deb but when i try to install it throws an error: Kernel Version differs "" and "2.6.33" inside utsrelease.h (wich does not exists anymore)
Can someone help?
Will try this patch. Guess i have to extract the .run and apply it there?!
After patching the files. How do i build and install the driver?
opening the .patch file, I haven't found references to 10.2. Instead it refers 10.1. Will this patch work for 10.2?
If so, what's the correct procedure to do so?
nothing else happens.Code:gtl@cpc-5564:~/Downloads$ cd ati gtl@cpc-5564:~/Downloads/ati$ ls ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run fglrx-2.6.33.patch gtl@cpc-5564:~/Downloads/ati$ sh ati-driver-installer-10-2-x86.x86_64.run --extract . Warning: target directory exists . Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.702.............(...) gtl@cpc-5564:~/Downloads/ati$ patch -p0 fglrx-2.6.33.patch
Thanks in advance,
how to patch it :If so, what's the correct procedure to do so?

sh ati-installer.sh . --install
After successfully compiling restart your penguin
If you had some errors like freeze,reboot or bug: "smp_processor preemptible" ( run terminal and type dmesg )recompile your kernel changing option from "preemptible kernel low latency desktop" to "Voluntary kernel preemption".
So if I don't see "smp_processor preemptible", I don't have to rebuild my kernel, right? (I ask because I'm getting annoying hangs sporadically with the driver.)
I managed to apply the patch thanks to paproch, it installed ok, but X failed to start. Switching to radeonhd I can fire up X, properly.
I'm wondering how can I completely remove this driver so i can perform a clean installation. I'll edit this post to paste the link for my /var/log/Xorg.0.log in a little while.
