ok my observations:
- it builds without patching with the 2.6.24-rc3 kernel
- the control center works now
- some apps still hang (including the control center) when they are the first program that talks to the driver
- compiz still doesn't work with xserver 1.4 (but I don't need that)
Overall I'm happy with this release. It installed flawlessly even on the latest kernel, that hang thing doesn't bug me that much and I can live without compiz.
Could some say something about the AIGLX performance?
The person who renamed the driver from 8.433 to 7-11 AFTER packageing must be an idiot. Now I have to rename the version in my script from 7-11 to 8.433 after extracting. If someone wants to rename the driver fine, but then package it with the same name! Usually the script could use -v VER but in that case you need special handling, that makes the option useless - or you have to parse the real name which is used by the packages.
Michael: should I start a new thread for it? btw the way how many devs are there meant to be working on the fglrxs now?
maybe that was finnaly corrected:
