If there are issues with the rpms, please report them (currently no
known issues): http://bugzilla.atrpms.net/

There are quite some benefits using the rpms over hand installed
drivers (just like for evey other software, too), most prominently you
can cleanup/upgrade your system quite easily, don't destroy Mesa libs,
and can have multiple drivers installed simultaneously, switching the
drivers "on the fly" w/o rebooting (OK, you need to exit X first ;).
