    Not to contradict you, but kernel 2.6.19-1.2911 came-out last month, kernel 2.6.19-1.2911.6.4 was released March 2nd and still works great for me and the fglrx driver.

    As stated earlier, did it work for you on any previous kernels?

    Also, what happens when you modprobe fglrx manually?

    I uninstalled my earlier kernel...so I cann't try it anymore,

    can you point out how to configure my Xorg.conf or some other way

    to enable my driver perfomance? Don't disappoint me again please...

    Help will give the confidence to me continuing studing Linux.

    aticonfig --initial --force
    That is the way to configure your driver... Did you see what happens when you modprobe fglrx manually?

    Hi again,
    I was just wondering what steps should I take now that the kernel has been upgraded. It seems to have jumped back to mesa. I tried using --extract but that doesn't seem to work. I'm guessing that has something to do with seeing old drivers. Am I supposed to uninstall and reinstall with each upgrade? Any help thanks.

    You should be able to follow the same steps, just reinstall the fglrx kernel-module.

    I must be going insane because I can't remember what I did last time to extract from the installer. I'm typing this at the moment but just not working, it deletes the folder at the end. I just realised though, I'm getting a different error at the end.
