Did you have fglrx previously installed on the laptop? If so, what are the exact steps you used to install the new version?
(Give me a minute to read your response, I'm working right now)
I did the usual, went into /usr/share/ati and run the uninstall script and then run the installer. Well I found out what the problem was. It appears that the gentoo-sources for the same revision I had on laptop didn't set up the build/source symlinks on laptop but they did on desktop, where I upgraded the kernel later. So I just reemerged the kernel and now it is also working fine on laptop.
BTW does anyone know when we will get OpenCL as part of Catalyst drivers? If I am correct windows drivers have it since 10.8, but here on Linux we are stuck with some beta 10.7 drivers. It would be nice to at least update the beta drivers to something like 10.9.
What do you mean being part of the Catalyst drivers?
OpenCL has worked for ages with the official catalyst drivers. Or do you mean their whole stream sdk being part of the catalyst drivers?
Buy a nvidia please. You can also use the open source drivers with table 7.9 of development. The vertical sync works perfectly. The 2D works very well. However, the 3D is practically nonexistent, but depends on the Ati you have. All this we say this because I had exeperiencia Ati and Nvidia. Currently I have a nvidia and problems are 0. There is no comparison, is another world friend.
