Can't upgrade libdrm to 2.3

Hey all,

I'm installing openSuse 10.2, and I'm working on installing appropriate ATI drivers for my card (X300 SE), with the intent of moving on to XGL and Beryl goodness. I'm stuck at a step where I (supposedly) need to upgrade to libdrm 2.3. I've gone through Yast, SMART, and direct methods, as much as I can figure out, but I can't get the new version installed. I can't even find it if I try to search repositories (I even added to SMART, where I can find their new RPM online, but SMART doesn't register any upgrades as being available).

So I'm stuck at 2.0-something, and I need 2.3. Any help?

Manually download it and install it.. or what type of errors do you get when you try to install/upgrade it manually?

No errors, everything seems fine, but the versions still list in SMART as 2.0-whatever.
