Hi all,

just a heads up. If you use the ATI binary driver, and install the latest kernel update (, then you will no longer be able to recompile the ATI driver due to missing compat_alloc_user_space() symbol in fglrx/kcl_ioctl.c.

According to, the "compat_alloc_user_space()" symbol became GPL-only, got moved to another header, etc.

Personally, I find it unbelievable that openSUSE kernel team would release a minor kernel upgrade that would screw up all users of the ATI binary driver.
