It sort of works. But its dog slow.
Google earth is barely usable. Gaming is out. And the ATI distributed
driver packages no longer install. The lower numbered Mobility Radeon
chipsets are pretty much dependent on Mesa, and its pathetic.

Yeah, the RPMs in the ati driver repository are broken, and the ati
driver installer you download directly from the website is a mess.
If it helps you, I posted a howto build the RPMs using the OBS instead
Its a bit more bandwidth intensive than compiling it yourself, but it
results in a cleaner package - the same quality as the ati repository
but up-to-date and working.
I did this for the recent 10.9 (8.771) driver release and have been
