I already posted a fix for the driver in this thread. Note that creating
the function outside the GPL ifdef is in all likelyhood a copyright
violation, you're not allowed to change the license

From a post in our forum:

Why are they rebuilding the package *at all*? It is not needed! The binary
driver they already have will work without being rebuilt!

Can somebody post complete instructions? Here, in our forum, or in the
wiki, please?

cd /usr/src/kernel-modules/fglrx
apply the above-mentioned patch
make install
