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: 184.108.40.206-27.fc7
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.
