What is "xorg 7.5?" - Fedora 11 64-bit


What is "xorg 7.5" and why is it required for the ATI Graphics Drivers (ATI RADEON 9550 / X1050 series)?

If it's required, where do I get it...?
Is it an actual project I have to compile using the GCC compiler?
- If so, could somebody walk me through how to do that?

Thanks!

Xorg 7.5 isn't out yet... Maybe you should explain what you are trying to do and why you think you need Xorg 7.5.

Nevermind, I was thinking I needed 7.4 or 7.5 (whatever it was) because it says it's required for the ATI Drivers.

These links pretty much (the far bottom one more-over) solved my issue, and now I have my drivers working (Fedora 10)!
