Yeah, the RPMs in the ati driver repository are broken, and the ati

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
enjoying life since.

This looks very interesting.

Will this work for a Mobility Radeon X1400 chipset with the 10.9 driver?

I travel with my laptop a lot, and I find that my Android phone is actually
faster with Google Earth then the Core 2 Duo using mesa.

The instructions wont work exactly as I posted them - you need Catalyst
9.3 (8.593) instead, but this is also available from the OBS. Follow the
instructions I gave, but substitute "ati-fglrxG01" instead of G02 in the
checkout stage, and don't change the source versions - leave them at
8.593. If you get stuck let me know. The package includes patches to
build against kernel-2.6.33.


Yup, noticed in the pci_ids-8.771 that my chipset was not there.

I Did get it to build, though.
I'll start over and see how that goes making the substitutions above.
A few (ok a lot) of warnings etc along the way.

Explain again the part about rm -rf /
