    Re: fglrx with kernel 2.6.38

    Hey, I can confirm that fglrx 11.1 works great with 2.6.38rc2 kernel. I got it from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa....38-rc2-natty/

    Are you telling me that fglrx works fine even with the new X server 1.10?

    Sorry,i think that version has not landed in natty yet.Are we still on X Server 1.9?

    We're still at 1.9 but I think I'd be better to be careful when upgrading to 1.10. I guess, let's say on 99% - it won't work.

    Definitely recent latest fglrx will not support xserver 1.10.
    But open source ati does support it.

    What about unity? Does that work with new fglrx? Havn't been able to log in to unity before, it has just been the background showing, and indicators seem to be working as network connection is showing up. Or will the classic desktop have to do it for now?

    Oh, thanks. Thought I read somewhere before that it was a driver bug, but thanks for that link. Now I've got something more to look forward to

    So it works with a newer kernel, but does it work with the newer xorg version? If not doesn't it make it pointless or do a new kernel and new xorg go hand in hand?

    It's not pointless. 2.6.38 has introduced some synaptics multitouch patches which are amazing for me, as a touchpad user. I can always hold on upgrading the xorg stuff.

    Re: fglrx with kernel 2.6.38

    Well you just answered my question anyway.

    I thought they might go hand in hand - if they don't then that's cool if the drivers work.

    That's what i meant i thought they both got updated at the same time so it would break the driver - which isn't the case
