Does anyone know how to install fglrx with the 3.5.x kernel?

I can live with gallium, an I don't mind dual booting, but I would really love to see better 3D acceleration!

btw you will have to change the "fglrx"entry to "ati" in xorg.conf and the graphics are not as good as the gallium – spider623 Jun 30 '12 at 23:01
I think what you've done there is to disable fglrx and instead enable the open-source driver (which has no problem running under kernel 3.5). Same effect as deleting xorg.conf completely. – Jonathon Jul 8 '12 at 11:58
