fglrx-legacy driver is not going to work with Xserver >= 1.13

Your options:
1) Hold back xserver indefinitely (but who knows how long that will work)..
2) Find a more stable distro
3) Use the open-source driver

Hello,

I have just fixed the fglrx-driver but not the -legacy for now, I will dig into the matter if I have some time.
Sometimes standing for what you believe means standing alone.

I wouldn't bother. There are no patches floating around to make fglrx-legacy run on xserver >= 1.13

I installed  xserver-org-video-all and everything updated.  I'm not sure why it's needed to d-u.

aptitude "shift-C" on the package would show you video-all lost support of many very old drivers. I don't need all the "all" packages, also from input-all I don't need mouse and synaptics. No problems here just having:
xorg
xorg-docs-core
xserver-common
xserver-xorg
xserver-xorg-core
xserver-xorg-input-evdev
xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-325.15-3
experiencing siduction runs better than my gentoo makes me know I know nothing

harley-peter, I am all up to date with my ati card, but right now it looks like there is a "collision" with udev.
