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.
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety,deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
