Hi all,

just a heads up. If you use the ATI binary driver, and install the latest kernel update (2.6.34.7-0.3), 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 http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/linux/kernel/1277377, 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.
