Please bear with me for a really stupid question...
I have a Radeon HD 4550 video card and currently run the Catalyst
driver, fglrx_6_9_0-8.741-1. I use the "package managed" method for
installing, allowing me keep track of what's what:
[rj at madeleine ~]$ su
[root at madeleine rj]# grep fglrx /var/log/yum*
/var/log/yum.log:May 20 12:37:07 Updated: fglrx_6_9_0-8.723-1.i386
/var/log/yum.log:Jul 25 13:04:49 Erased: fglrx_6_9_0
/var/log/yum.log:Jul 25 13:33:11 Installed: fglrx_6_9_0-8.741-1.i386
[root at madeleine rj]# exit
[rj at madeleine ~]$
So, my question is, must/should I rebuild the driver each time I install
an updated kernel or is it sufficient to "yum remove
fglrx_6_9_0-8.741-1", update the kernel and (maybe) glibc, then "yum
localinstall $(locate i386/fglrx_6_9_0-8.741-1.i386.rpm)" ?
If anyone wonders why I don't simply stick with the generic driver, the
fglrx driver makes a WORLD of difference with Googleearth.
