[LAU] fglrx + linux-rt + Ubuntu = possible!

I did it! Finally I'm able to boot linux-rt with working (but
proprietary) fglrx drivers. I used kernel versions 2.6.27-7 and
2.6.27-3-rt from the repos. Here's a Howto for everyone who also spend
hours of frustration:

0. Uninstall the fglrx driver and linux-rt if installed.

1. Last night I found https://launchpad.net/~abogani/+archive . There's
a subfolder "fglrx-installer". Download those debs
(fglrx-amdcccle_8.543, fglrx-kernel-source_8.543,
fglrx-modaliases_8.543, libamdxvba1_8.543, xorg-driver-fglrx_8.543,
xorg-driver-fglrx-dev_8.543) and install them. Neither mess around with
those other files like "fglrx-installer", I didn't need them, nor add
the repository to your list (also not needed, linux-rt won't even
install if you do that). If the files mentioned above aren't there,
email me.

2. Just install linux-rt, image, headers, restricted modules in synaptic
- watch for the dkms message! If fglrx was succesfully build in your
standart kernel, it should automatically install for the linux-rt
kernel. In my case it was confused because there was fglrx 8.552 and
fglrx 8.543 installed, I had to remove version 8.552 in order to get it
to build (sudo dkms remove -m fglrx -v 8.552 --all). If dkms in the
details dialog in synaptic says it's alright you should be fine.

I'm so happy, I'm going to post this on ubuntuusers.de and the
proprietary ati driver wiki.
