    Ehm, strange thing that exactly this patchset is working like a charm for me...

    In principle, the installer should handle replacing the packages for you.

    Do tell me how you get on - in Feisty 64bit, the new driver is lovely, except that it's broken wine totally for me...

    I'm using x200m and got it working. The results are less than stellar though. Some animations in Compiz Fusion are choppy. Scolling in most apps is choppy. I also get weird scrambled video when opening certain apps like firefox. But AIGLX is working, its a step forward.

    Specs:
    x200m + feisty + Compiz Fusion (trevino) + 8.42.3

    Im on core2 duo with 32bit env, but I compiled almost my whole world with gcc-4.3.0 with -march=core2. could this enable some 64bit flags?

    compiz output

    Code:
    compiz (core) - Fatal: GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap is missing
    compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
    compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

    Card: ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 (ACER Travelmate 4000)
    OS : Fedora 7 / Kernel 2.6.22.9-91.fc7


    Also, fglrx driver since version 8.38 start to hang for a strange reason when the first application i started was firefox and nothing else were running.

    I've tried to figure out every fglrx parameter in xorg.conf but none resolved my problem.


    if someone have any suggestion i'd appreciate, thx

    No. 32bits are 32bits and only 32 bits.
