    Is this still necessary for the latest release?

    Could people please stop refering to problems with FC or any other distro? It's probably the same problems with numerous distros.

    I'm on debian, and I have NO idea what the problem is when running fglrx on FC7. I'd be helped if you guys could say What breaks. Segfault? If so, what's the stack trace? Black screen? Can't identify screens? Doesn't compile? etc etc etc.

    Because perhaps, this fix could help me and others too, right? But now, we don't even know if we have the same problem.

    Fedora always tends to be on the bleeding edge more so than other distributions.

    Michael, Archlinux and Debian/sid are more current than Fedora and have no problems, so that argument can't be the reason.

    You're right about sid being more current, but perhaps it only works for 32-bit, becase on 64-bit with newer kernels, it doesn't work.

    I'll have to repeat anyway: WHAT makes fglrx break on FC? I want to know if it's because of newer kernels, or X.org, and if so, I'd like a GENERAL fix, not FC-specific, because I sure as hell try out newer kernels as they come, and my Xorg isn't very old neither...
    But I guess I'm hoping for too much. I'll just have to accept that no one cares about 64-bit Debian/sid.

    I just think the FC/Slackware-specific fixes are idiocy.

    This thread is being closed since Fedora 7 x86_64 will be fixed shortly. If you have other questions or continue to run into problems please create a new thread.
