I have just tried to install the new ATI driver on my Thinkpad - no
dice, the FireGL series (I have Mobility FireGL T2 in the machine) is
not supported in 8.41 at all and X doesn't start with it :( Perhaps next
month with 8.42 ...
Also, the preliminary reports from Rage3D forums seems to be: OpenGL is
faster, but the driver is buggy as hell. Some kind of stabilization
could be expected only around 8.42-43 (November?).
