Default help with latest ATI catalyst driver on fedora 15

hello all i would like to know how to build an rpm package for ati
driver on fedora 15

i've found this topic on the internet[1] but it caused strange video
issues (i.e. superior bar with strange colors) on gnome3

if no alternative rather the pointed one is available, maybe i get kde
for a while, bu would be nice to get the full performance on the nice
gnome shell.

thanks in advance.

rpmfusion does nothing other than build a RPM from the upstream.drivers
so what do you expect doing this on your own?

----
download the source rpm from rpmfusion and install it

make whatever changes you want to the sources (which is sort of
impossible since ATI distributes a compiled binary)

rebuild using the spec file from rpmfusion

Thanks a lot for the tip.

But actually i installed again the driver from rpmfuion, since it's
quite up-to-date already.

I got better 3D acceleration with near zero effort,

the problem with gnome shell persists, but kde is doing a good job for now.

I have little idea,

but i quit this plan when i tried the driver from rpmfusion again and
it was updated.

the problem in the end is this driver being a blob, certain featuers
are simply implemented wrong inside it.
