    I can say that there is a very high chance that 8.39 gets released by tomorrow. I am very sure it will.

    #edit: Okay I am not 100% percent sure but it seems that the Windows driver already got the WHQL certificate since one week and seems ready. We'll see.

    wow, works with no patches on 2.6.22-gentoo kernel.

    i don't have any crashes, except for standard issues (xvideo, performance).

    Funny that Fedora-lover Michael can laugh about AMDs issues about Fedora

    No, 2.6.22 & fglrx 8.38.7 run without any patches on my sidux installation with Xorg Server 1.3.

    The common issues like crash-on-console switch (which was fixed in 8.36 and then came back) are still there but I am not experiencing any new ones.

    If there is a need for a 2.6.22 patch, it should come by 8.40, I guess it's too late for 8.39.

    If there is not Linux 2.6.22 support in the mainstream firegl_public code, there should be a patch for the Fedora 7 packaging scripts. Though what would be the use of a 2.6.22 patch if there is no X server 1.3 for Fedora 7 support?
