    a 5850 is much better because amd disable some key features in the 5830...

    the 5850 also have full-speed 64bit openCL support :-)

    I did not create the needed patches, those are from arch, its mentioned in the script too:

    # http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ca...x-2.6.33.patch
    # http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ca...6.34-rc4.patch

    I just execute em on the fly when i detect that they are needed, which is simple, you only need to do

    grep -q generated/autoconf.h common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/firegl_public.c || echo no 2.6.33+ support - patch needed

    Basically you could patch the already installed fglrx driver too. Just thats not automated. As soon as ATI has direct support the patches will not be applied.

    Does not matter, the script checks it on the fly, independend of the version you install - you can use -v option to install any version you put into /usr/src before.

    I don't know about Ubuntu, but my experience with Fedora was that the first step of getting it installed was to return to the store and exchange it for a 5850. AFAIK, that's not Fedora-specific.

    As far as I was able to determine (and no one here has said otherwise), Catalyst 10.4 doesn't seem to support the 5830. Maybe 10.5 will. Since it uses the same chip as the 5850 and 5870, it's might just be a matter of adding the 5830's PCI device ID to the list.
