I can not say what is the proper procedure.

It's the second time you say that. Out of curiosity, what was wrong with my
step-by-step description?

Strictly what I said: that _I_ can not say, because I do not know, I'm not affected. I'm commenting on what others say, and passing info from the forum to the list, and back, for others.

I suggest that you people that know the issue drop down by the fora and talk to people there, having problems ;-)

I simply copied your instructions:
cd /usr/src/kernel-modules/fglrx
apply the above-mentioned patch
make install

to the forum, and I'm waiting for comments. I assume that's the "step-by-step description" you mean?

Also, I have no idea why they can't simply use the rpm with drivers, readily made, I assume. I asked why, no reply yet.
