    I personally am using Xorg GIT under Arch linux, along with other Arch users (Vi0L0).

    What's needed is to checkout GIT and modify the configure.ac's version number to 1.7.5.1 - it will work with the fglrx perfectly just as with xorg-server 1.7!!
    I would expect this sort of trickery to be required for the OSS drivers, not for the 'download and go' ones. I agree with the parent post - with KMS the open drivers already deliver a good chunk of joy and the proprietary drivers are only closer to their doom.

    Now, who was it that said fglrx will get 1.7 support just after 1.8 is out?

    It would be nice to have a HOTFIX version of the 10.4 that will allow the 1.8 version definitions of XORG to work with fglrx catalyst.

    They do, you can usually find them buried in some ubuntu repository.
