Correct me if I'm wrong and out of line here, but if the latest fglrx
packages doesn't work with F7, can't the 3rd party repo maintainers
remove it in favor of an older package that does work (only in their F7
repos)?  Why isn't this a viable solution?  I thought that the point of
having 3rd party repos was to help provide packages that worked.  I
realize you can argue whether the fglrx package is broken or that Fedora
7 breaks it, but if the previous packages work, let's package them up
for F7 until ATI fixes fglrx!
