    Please, AMD, we asked for firing of fglrx developers.
    AMD currently asks for new developers. Should be the better idea.

    Uninstall is no option to the script,but:

    cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.1st /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    apt-get remove --purge $(dpkg -l|awk '/fglrx/{print $2}')

    will remove it.

    Did they recruit developers?
    The recruited someone for the specifications, but that isn't the same.

    They are looking for fglrx developers at the moment. Look around on amd.com's job site to find the description.

    Excellent scripts!

    I started my computer in single-user mode (non-X console) and purged the previous version. I ran the install script. Then, "exit" and the startup proceeded and 3D works!

    glxgears:

    39620 frames in 5.0 seconds = 7923.917 FPS
    30950 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6189.878 FPS
    30547 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6109.343 FPS
    30761 frames in 5.0 seconds = 6152.027 FPS

    chromium: 45-50 fps

    Nexuiz etc run smooth!

    etc



    Thanks for a WORKING script!!

    Pushing my luck here... You don't happen to know if this setup would work with Compiz?

    This is really getting ridiculous. There are several showstopper bugs in the driver right now. I mean, the memory leak is a nobrainer - you just don't release software with such a huge, known flaw. Than there's Xvideo which is broken since more than a year. Suspend, for crying out loud! I don't care about AIGLX (not anymore), just give me a driver capable of a bit of 3D, playing movies in acceptable quality and which is not butchering suspend/resume.

    I've given up all hope on fglrx. I just hope that the radeon or radeonhd reach a usable state on R500 chipsets in the next few months.

    The script does more than you might have thought, you do not need single user mode, it kills kdm/gdm or whatever, uninstalls previous driver, installs new one and patches xorg.conf. After that X is started again. The commands I told you are just to delete the driver if you do not want to use fglrx at all.
