Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Go back to 22.214.171.124, brother! Looks like every ATI owner should do this sadly backward-step ... OR, go forward!
There is no love for us, in 126.96.36.199!
Well, maybe it's the kernel, the fglrx module doesn't compile with many kernels. Which graphics-card do you have? mine is relatively new. It was not well supported by fglrx when I purchased the laptop some month ago.

I'm running kernel 188.8.131.52 together with fglrx for my HD5850, but fglrx needs some patching to compile with newer kernels. I followed the instructions here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1615594 to get it working. I didn't make a pkg though, I just installed the driver, you might need to add the --install flag twice for the installer script to work from an extracted fglrx package. (e.g. ati-installer.sh --install --install)
I've downgraded from current to 13.1 since I'm not yet convinced that my problem really was a kernel-issue.
I'm going to do what JackHair suggested and try out a patched fglrx-driver with a more recent kernel.
At the moment I'm running the stock-13.1 kernel and the 10.12 fglrx module, it seems to work.
I'll mark this thread as SOLVED, but user-experiences with the fglrx-module are still welcome.
Thanks to Darth Vader and JackHair.
