I can get the module to build with that 34.patch but then I get

fglrx: Unknown symbol old_rsp (err 0)

and I found someone else reporting that bug to amd

New patch from http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=495 added by Zenitur

(Testing on my system with AMD driver is in progress ;)

Using only the patch from #6 fglrx builds and X loads. glxinfo reports info as expected (as far as I can tell ;). Unity3D starts.

I had no luck with the new patch. It still gave compiler warnings. So I combined the two patches to one and that worked for my situation.

Thank you

There's also a new patch for kernel 3.5 which works for me (credited to Enrico Tagliavini).

@Holm: patches much appreciated. Last hunk ("for_each_possible_cpu") from the firegl patch was meanwhile integrated upstream (version 12-8 downloaded today from ati site) and will not apply.

Perhaps the xorg-edgers guys might be interested in putting those patches to the fglrx-installer packages?
