I have also an ATI 5000 series adapter. But I use the radeon-driver, not fglrx from ATI. And I don't use KDE but dwm, so I've no problems here.

You should reinstall the fglrx driver before you execute the "aticonfig --initial" command.

Just updated to latest current and found my mouse and keyboard unresponsive in X11..

Looks like anyone who is still using old style kbd or mouse drivers rather than evdev is going to hit this.
Code:

Robby, Do input-keyboard and input-mouse need rebuilding/version bumping or are you planning to remove them in favour of evdev?

I originally stuck with the keyboard and mouse drivers because evdev was a little flakey for me when I originally tried it. It's probably improved a little by now though so I'll give it another try.

If you experience that the KDE-eyecandy doesn't work properly with the radeon-driver, try to change Xrender to opengl, I once had success therewith.

Same issue with AMD driver here, installs fine, but segfaults when trying to startx (HD6870). Not really a problem for me, gaming is done under Windows and my wmii runs fine with the radeon driver. May be another incompatibility of AMD's driver with current software.

You did the mesa upgrade and the freeglut new package?

Or does the ATI do the same as nvivida and bring it's own OpenGL library?

Thanks for taking an interest but I don't have a problem, I was just reporting the issue incase others hit it.

xf86-input-keyboard and xf86-input-mouse packages haven't been rebuilt/bumped for the new server as can be seen here:
Code:

-rw-r--r-- 1 build build 37372 May  4 04:58 xinput-1.5.99.901-x86_64-1.txz
...and don't work. I was still trying to use 'kbd' and 'mouse' in my xorg.conf which didn't work. Switching to 'evdev' sorts everything out..

As the slackware-current/source/x/ directory doesn't contain them, I'm guessing robby is planning to remove them and just make everyone use evdev, in which case these two packages need to be removed from slackware-current/slackware/x/

XOrg upstream has a newer version
xf86-input-keyboard-1.6.1
http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/dri...d-1.6.1.tar.gz

xf86-input-mouse-1.7.2
http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/dri...e-1.7.2.tar.gz

So let's just wait for Robby's update for this two packages

At this point they're probably only intended for platforms that don't have evdev. As I said above, my guess is that robby is intending to drop them, but I could be wrong.

Drivers need to be recompiled with every major version jump in the xserver.

This has not occurred this time with those 2 drivers hence the ABI error.

They just to be recompiled and then they will work again normally.
