    It is still there, it is still disabled by default and you can still enable it with the same instruction that were used for the 10.2 drivers.

    what is "unsupported kernels / xorg version" and by whom they should be "supported" so i could use it ?
    should i buy some insurance plan and go register with my documents somewhere to get my "support" ?

    again, for some reason when i asking developers if something doesn't work right: "what should i do?", sneaky bastards always reply to "try newest version" and that previous "became deprecated and unsupported outside of your distribution's maintenance".

    that is, probably, because there is no "supported and unsupported" in F/OSS community but "stable and unstable"...
    and they both working. differently, but working

    should i write an official petition letter with supplication to grant me permission in keeping system updated ?

    probably it did.
    two year ago on even older card i wasn't able to make those "drivers" operational for some time and then i did, it showed some scary pictures and died immediately.
    these days, probably, pictures are less scary.

    and you could agree with undeniable fact that X-blobs are horrendous.
    but nor i nor you did and this is not a thread about OSS depelopers or their awesomeness which they already know about.

    also, i will commend ATI jack shit since there is no ATI, there only AMD and it always rocked.

    and i agree that moralize anyone is much more pleasant than admit the problem.

    You'll still probably want to use backclear until the new 2D acceleration is enabled by default.

    Good release for me (Kubuntu 9.10, 5770).
    I have enabled Direct2DAccel and it look much more stable than 10.2. Window moving and resizing run smoothly.

    Kwin is working again but I not keep it enabled, I am just happy with the 2D desktop now.

    now I get the same error / behavior like with 10.4pre:

    acceleration doesn't work at all, segmentation faults when trying to run compiz, glxinfo, glxgears, etc. etc.


    what is it with these drivers ?

    when will I be able to use fglrx again ? 10.6 or 10.10 ?

    I forgot: the error number is "error 7" or something that of
