I'm pulling my hair out with this
i have an ati radeon 9500 pro video card and i am trying to get 3d acceleration. i downloaded the fglrx driver from the ati web site. i followed the directions (i have the source code matching the kernel i am using and the make utility) i get an error with trying to execute the make.sh and make_install.sh........when i exectue the make.sh command i get the following error.................
linux:/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod # sh make.sh
ATI module generator V 2.0
XFree86 drm includes at /lib/modules/2.6.5-7.108-default/build/include/../drivers/char/drm do not fit this driver.
This driver is designed to only work with X4.1.0 or higher.
You can match this by getting Linux kernel 2.4.8 or higher.
now...at ati's web site they have the check.sh script that i used and verified my version of xfree86 that i have and it came back with 4.3.0.....however the driver install is saying i need 4.1.0 or higher to work......which i have.... along with kernel 2.6.5-7.108......what the hell??!! can anyone help me please...i feel that i am very close to getting this to actually work...its been a month now.....i miss my games a lot
