    I am ignoring it .

    The post is mostly to illustrate to others coming across this issue that the posts which claim that uninstalling the old driver and deleting /etc/ati, then rebooting and installing the new driver doesn't necessarily result in the correct version number being displayed by the Catalyst Control Centre.

    To many out there, no, you're not doing it wrong fglrx is (surprise, surprise)

    The thing is harder to kill that Michael Myers
    If X is still running it just rebuilds itself.

    What I do after generating the Mandriva rpms is then use the --extract option.
    Reboot to init 3 upgrade the driver then as I reboot again pop in a live disk.
    Delete the old /etc/ati folder and paste in the new one from the extracted fglrx folder..works every time. May add a few minutes to the upgrade process but what the heck.

    This driver as a bug in ubuntu:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/641890

    I applied the patch but the driver still fails to load. Any suggestion?

    You'd think so, but don't worry the .deb packages don't do this either... You'd think that by now they'd embed a version string in the drivers and just have CCC read it from there...

    Hey! Someone else is bitching about the 1m edit timeout now too... lovely how it leads to masses of double, trip, quadruple, etc. posts.

    (Been trying out Android tablets recently(don't buy the Augen Gentouch78), and knew that nothing exciting would be happening w/fglrx anyways... wasn't surprised when I came back and saw most of the same old friendly bugs still around.)

    So what sort sort of OpenGL support are the OSS drivers up to now? Power management fully implemented yet? (Haven't been watching these for a while either as not much exciting was happening with them either, but it seems that I MAY have missed something over the last few months...)

    The new Ubuntu kernel breaks wine... FFS! I was thinking it was FGLRX fault.

    At least the new kernel + this fix https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...er/+bug/641890 is breaking Wine. (4 driver versions tested 10-9, 10-8, 10-4, 10-4).

    If someone knows how to fix this I would be gratefull.

    EDIT: Its breaks OpenGL inside Wine.

    OpenGL is working perfectly everywhere else.

    I think I'm experiencing the same issue. I filed a bug report at http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1913 but haven't received a reply yet. Before reporting this as a bug, I asked on the Arch forums if anyone was able to reproduce this issue, but yours is the only similar report.

    Have you by any chance found an explanation of what's wrong and/or maybe a solution?

    I had the same problem and was going nuts. Found it to be an issue with linux kernel 2.6.32-24 (which made it's way to the Ubuntu repositories a few days ago - you probably just got it while running updates). I rolled back to 2.6.32-23 and now I can install any version of Catalyst again, including the new 10.9 (fglrx 8.771).

    Just install the following from Synaptic:
    linux-headers-2.6.32-23
    linux-headers-2.6.32-23-generic
    linux-image-2.6.32-23-generic

    It should update grub for you automatically. Next time you reboot, you should presented an option for which kernel you'd like to use. Select the -23 version and install Catalyst again. It shoudld work now.

    You can either leave -24 there for now or remove it. I would also install StartupManager from synaptic to help you manage grub if you are going to keep several images to boot to.

    Hope that helps! Frustrated the hell outta me for a bit.

    There is definitely a problem with the new 2.6.32-x kernel and fglrx. Not sure yet what the final resolution will be.
