If you've been trying out the latest alpha builds of Ubuntu 8.04 "Hardy Heron"
and are using the ATI binary driver, you may want to check out the latest packaging scripts from Phorogit
. For Ubuntu users, there is now 8.04 support so you can run --buildpkg Ubuntu/hardy
or --buildpkg Ubuntu/8.04
for building your Debian packages. The Ubuntu packaging scripts also now utilize DKMS support
(Dynamic Kernel Module Support), for easily rebuilding the fglrx package upon Linux kernel upgrades. DKMS for fglrx in Ubuntu no longer makes it necessary to use the module-assistant
installation routine. These Ubuntu packaging script updates (and others
) will be present in this month's ATI Catalyst 7.12 release for Linux.
