Yes, it's a binary driver, and I'm not happy about that, but I

all video drivers seem to suffer the same fate
- nvidia gforce/quadro4, ati firegl-2, etc seem to not run on latest greatest gcc/xfree-4.3 since those *.o they provide
	is for prior versions

just depends on which distro and which version of x11 and which kernel
and which gcc
	- need for the graphics drivers folks to release *.c so we
	can compile/link it properly .. otherwise those video cards
	are useless at least, its latest/greatest features cant be used

c ya


Actually, there are ATI binary drivers for XFree86 4.3, just here....


Search the forums here, for Linux install tips, with ATI, scroll down a wee ways....


They are nice too, I am running some now, in Xandros 1.0.
