This is just to tell that fglrx 8.16.20 debian package (for i386, at
least) works fine with kernel 2.6.13.
I compiled the module with make-kpkg.
i used the ati-installer to create a deb for unstable and it worked like a
charm -- with one drawback: it creates in /usr/share/fglrx three files ...
i don't know why these files can't be created in /tmp -- writing into
directories elsewhere files not belonging to a package is verys bad style,
my problem: trying to start after installation and building the
kernel-module failed claiming there's no synaptics-touchpad and thus no
corepointer ... not clear, why and how to fix, the sysnaptics-driver is
installed and worked perfectly with 8.14.13.
as a workaround i created an xorg.conf by fglrxconfig (a very ugly and
inconvenient tool -- no useful descriptions of the options, no retries
(would like to allow dri only to members of group "dri" -- the tool only
said "no such group -- allow to all". why does it not say "choes again"?))
flavio, is it possible to configure the list-server to add a
reply-to-header? i have always to change the recipient's address or add a
cc and still -- if in a hurry -- forget it sometimes. but as all
recipients read the list, i think a simple reply-to to the list only would
