    What steps are you doing to install it? It should be like running the file with the extract argument, change directories into the fglrx-install folder, patch firegl_public, run ati-installer.sh inside the fglrx-install folder and it won't overwrite your changes.

    That's what I was doing. I got it to compile by deleting the /usr/src/fglrx.tar so it couldn't recopy the file over the patched one.
