Description John Mev 2012-03-11 09:19:30 EDT
Description of problem:
I own an ATI graphic card, and I use the AMD proprietary driver fglrx since years. 
Habitually when there is a new release of the kernel, DKMS automatically builds the news modules. 

This is impossible with the last kernel.
To make the computer run I had to return back to te preceding one, which compiles perfectly.

This AMD driver runs also perfectly on RHEL 6

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kernel/ kernel-devel

How reproducible:
Install an FC15 system and the proprietary AMD driver
with kernel, it compiles an runs
with the
 it produces an error message, see below:

there is the same error trying to build the modules without dkms and compile directly.

Actual results:
doesnt' work and fallback to the radeon driver :(

Expected results:
works and is able to run 3D and compiz aso

Comment 1 Josh Boyer 2012-03-12 09:52:17 EDT
TS_USEDFPU was removed in the stable backport of Linus' FPU handling fixes.  The fglrx code will need to adapt to those changes.
Comment 2 John Mev 2012-03-13 06:19:13 EDT

I'll try to tell it them.
