    That's what I was doing. I got it to compile by deleting the /usr/src/fglrx.tar so it couldn't recopy the file over the patched one.

    How did you get it to work? I have applied the patch, verified it made the changes, and when I compile it magically seems to undo itself and give me the same error I had before the patch. After attempting to compile, I looked back at firegl_public.c and it had indeed undone itself because the changes the patch was supposed to make are no longer there. This is really frustrating, can anybody help me?

    i can't apply the patch on my gentoo:

    Code:
    gentoo 2.6.x # patch -p0 < ~/fglrx-2.6.22.patch
    patching file firegl_public.c
    Hunk #1 FAILED at 144.
    1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file firegl_public.c.rej
    kernel 2.6.22rc3 patched with ragnarok patches.
    will 8.37 need this patch?

    this is the output if I try to compile:


    How do I apply this patch please?

    Oh... Thanks for the info.

    The patch was written by a fglrx package maintainer for Ubuntu.

    The 8.37 will be available later this month.
