    doesn't work, but might get it going with some pci-id-hacks.

    I know this is not what you want to hear, but I know the wait for fglrx 8.43 will be worth it for FireGL along with other features coming.

    You didn't spend a small fortune on a laptop you can't use for months on end! (Although I doubt that NVIDIA graphics would have been much better.)

    Now how do I hack it?

    and success. I do get an AMD Unsupported Hardware in the bottom right corner tho'

    I followed the steps from http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5203

    but applied the patch manually.

    now let's test aiglx on this z61p

    Default So close, and yet still so far...

    Following these instructions and using a chip ID of "0x71D5" (Radeon X1700) for my FireGL V5250, I have managed to:

    - enable DRI
    - enable AIGLX
    - run Compiz
    - run celestia with OpenGL 2.0 support (although it interacts badly with Compiz)
    - run glxgears with approx 2400 fps

    This is all great! However, it fails at the final hurdle of running World of Warcraft, where it presents me with a completely black login screen. I am thinking that this must be a configuration issue, because everything else is working so well.

    Obviously I have the "unsupported hardware" rectangle in the bottom RH corner of the screen, and these messages are written to my kernel log:

    [fglrx] ASYNCIO init succeed!

    I tried the patch with the new drivers on my Firegl V3200, but it didn't work.... Anyone have any suggestions other than wait another month?
