    I'm not sure I understand the reply, so let me rephrase my original question: Has AMD dropped linux drivers for Radeon HD agp cards, or is this just some kind of oversight and the same release will work on both agp and pcie cards, as they have in the past?

    openSUSE 11.2 64bit too, though HD4670 (desktop).
    Working fine so far.

    cd /usr/share/ati
    ./fglrx-uninstall.sh
    *reboot*
    rm /etc/ati/amdpcsdb
    cd /to/folder/with/catalyst/10.6
    sh ati-[tab]
    "Enter" multiple times
    *reboot*
    Happy camper

    I'd like to know this as well. Some posts hint at "patching Xorg to report version 1.7" - is it possible to do so on F13?

    Smile Wow, this driver is SO AWESOME!

    I have a Radeon HD 2600 which I haven't been using due to slow compositing and issues with video playback. I've installed the 8.6 driver in openSUSE 11.2 x86_64, and the performance is so much better! Now I can use my quite fast graphics card and still get sweet performance on the desktop! Now I'm considering buying more AMD graphics cards now that the driver works better.

    There are at least two fan-less netbooks on the market. Both use intel-CPUs (atom) and have glossy displays, and I'm not touching that. But they exist.

    My current notebook is on the brink of death due to a semi-dead and unreplaceable fan (possibly induced by higher-than-intended load to mask a defective nvidia GPU), which means two out of three notebooks became unusable because of a fan. I'd like to prevent my next purchase from suffering the same fate.

    be sure i don't touch a Intel-cpu based notebook

    but yes i'm very interested in passive cooled notebooks.

    Thanks a lot. That fixed the driver problem for me. PCI:1:5:0 for my notebook.

    I don't know if there is really a performance gain, but I only have an Radeon HD 3200 in my notebook.

    Well, video playback is still a very weak point of fglrx. Especially with Evergreen cards. So I'll probably remove the Evergreen tomorrow and wait for the open source code to be released.

    Yeah, whatever "mmh".

    To answer my own question, the 10.6 driver does work on my agp 4650 card.
