    Default X Window System Version 1.2.99.902 (1.3.0 RC 2) & ATI 8.35.5 --> X version mismatch?

    Hi allz,

    I just installed the new ATI 8.35.5 driver with Fedora/F7. --buildpkg Fedora/F7 went smoothly and the appropriate rpms have all been built and installed properly.
    My prob is now that atiddxSetup detects a wrong X-Window Version during X-Window start.

    Here is the corresponding Xorg.0.log:

    >(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//fglrx_drv.so
    >(II) Module fglrx: vendor="FireGL - ATI Technologies Inc."
    > compiled for 7.1.0, module version = 8.35.5
    > Module class: X.Org Video Driver
    ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 1.0
    >[atiddxSetup] X version mismatch - detected X.org 1.3.-1.902, required >X.org 7.1.0.0
    >(II) UnloadModule: "fglrx"

    ..so fglrx fails to load because of a x version mismatch...

    Anybody here with similiar problems and maybe even a solution? ;-)
    Should I install another X-version? 7.1? How do I get it? (yum install ... ?)

    Any hint is highly appreciated..

    thx in advance!

    Default

    you should degrade to 7.2 at best. (that version works for me). i haven't used fedora even once so i have no idea.

    by the way ... it says "compiled for 7.1.0". it appears that x.org-7.2 is not that much different from 7.1, since it can use driver built for previous version.

    does is mean that adding x.org 7.2 support to fglrx was as simple as doing a one-line modification in version checker in fglrx source code? :]
