I don't know whether or not I got it from there, and I don't know if it
was the same version, but I tried the fglrx driver and got nowhere -
several times. I still have it on my system, somewhere....

Ah. I have various versions up through 4.2.20, and the site linked has
up to 4.3.0, so the situation may have improved since I tried it. I'll
see about trying with a new version... one of these days....
