      *On to inspect the contents of this new perhaps-to-be-fglrx-8.4 mystery-file*
      Hmm, packages for Ubuntu Gutsy built successfully using the Catalyst 8.4 package, driver version is reported to be 8.476 (compared to Catalyst 8.3, which is 8.471). Can't find any release notes in the packages, though (guess that's normally not included) .. Haven't actually tested the thing, yet.. But this certainly indicates that a release is near in time ? ..

        sh ati-driver-installer-8-4-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/8.04 fails with this:

        Code:
        dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: symbol XauFileName used by debian/xorg-driver-fglrx/usr/sbin/atieventsd found in none of the libraries.
        dpkg-shlibdeps: warning: debian/xorg-driver-fglrx/usr/sbin/atieventsd shouldn't be linked with libXrender.so.1 (it uses none of its symbols).

        Note: libraries are not searched in other binary packages that do not have any shlibs or symbols file.
        To help dpkg-shlibdeps find private libraries, you might need to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

           .. problems in build-land ..
          Guess it's not quite there, yet . Will Ubuntu 8.04 be officially supported by the upcoming fglrx ? I haven't kept up with the news and things, lately.

            Interesting. I had considered the idea that it was the windows release that was holding back the release date. Never though of this tough.

            edit: hum, just noticed someone had problems compiling while i posted this. ahh well...

              Something with my machine i guess. Just tried 8.3 and got the same error.

                    I built the packages. Now i have this:
                    Code:

                    Seems like its trying to divert /usr/X11R6/lib32/libGL.so.1 and /usr/X11R6/lib32/libGL.so.1.2 to same file.
