Please remain objective

Removing subjective/personal comments.

Please keep article contents objective and verifiable, removing the 'consequently, there is a revenue loss'. If you can provide an indication of actual verifiable revenue loss, by all means. Likewise, the personal priorities indicated by 'nice-to-have' packaging, but F7 is more important is a subjective statement based on your priorities, not AMD's or other companies or individual.

Works for me

The 8.39.4 Driver works for me on FC7 (Lenovo T60p with FireGL 5200). Kernel:

Output of fglrxinfo: display: :0.0 screen: 0 OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc. OpenGL renderer string: ATI MOBILITY FireGL V5200 OpenGL version string: 2.0.6650 (8.39.4)

8.40.4 does not work with FC7 out of the box

libstdc++.6.0.8 is not backward compatible with the needed libstdc++.5

Works nicely on Fedora core 7

Fresh install of Fedora core 7 on my laptop with a Radeon Mobility X1600

Downloaded rev 8.42.3, runned it with no errors. However, I had to manually pick fglrx in the hardware section of the video display settings. Beside that, works great.

An alternative, non technical way

This post really helped me going, after no helpful instructions anywhere that I could fathom. A step by step working guide for total newbies to linux like me
