    Default AMD 8.42.3 Driver Repo for fedora

    Does anyone know of a repo that contains the new ADM 8.42.3 fglrx RPM? I'm running fedora 7 and I would like to install the new AMD/ATI driver. I currently use livna but they don't seem to have the latest driver, they only have the kmod-fglrx 8.40.4-2.2.6.22.9_91.fc7

    I imagine this is because not all ATI graphics chips are supported by the newest drivers. I have an integrated ATI Radeon Xpress 200M. If I look up the drivers for that on the ATI/AMD website, it lists 8.40.4 as the corresponding driver.

    If livna pushed the latest drivers, imagine all the systems that would get updated, then wouldn't load xorg. I know how much that sucks - I can deal with it now, but for those that are still Linux newbies, it's very frustrating.

    I just built a RHEL5 x86_64 package and it works fine in Fedora 7 x86_64. I'd imagine it's the same for i386.
