    ati and wrong kernel version?!


    root@box:/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod# ./make.sh
    ATI module generator V 2.0
    ==========================
    initializing...
    Error:
    kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include do not match current kernel.
    they are versioned as "2.4.27"
    instead of "2.6.9".
    you might need to adjust your symlinks:
    - /usr/include
    - /usr/src/linux


    and the worst is that uname -r says i have got already kernel 2.6.9

    pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaase any clue?

    how can i change those symlinks, i dont know even what they are

    Im completely newbie

    I'm no guru but I'll try to give you a hand.

    do a
    Code:
    ls -l /usr/src/linux
    and make sure that /usr/src/linux points to the 2.6.9 kernel folder.

    If it does, then it sounds like the ati driver is not current. I use nvidia so I'm not sure how ati's drivers are installed.

    If it doesn't then
    Code:
    ls /usr/src
    and look for a linux-2.6.9.... directory.

    Then
    Code:
    cd /usr/src
    and type
    Code:
    rm linux
    Lastly reset the symlink with
    Code:
    ln -s linux-2.6.9.... linux
    Make sure that you work from the /usr/src/linux folder and never from the /usr/src/linux-2.6.9...

    Also make sure you complete the linux-2.6.9... with the correct name of the folder in /usr/src/

    Good Luck.

    Symlink is a shorthand way of saying 'symbolic link' which is roughly equivalent to 'shortcut' in the (sad) world of Windows. But we can't say shortcut, because we have another kind of link: a 'hard link", but that's another discussion. So in bonedaddy's post, when he uses the ln command, he is creating a link and the '-s' makes it a symbolic link. To learn more, at the command line enter: 'man ln' and you will be able to read the 'manual' page for the ln command. and if you really want more, pick up a copy of the book I'm currently reading: "Linux Pocket Guide" by Daniel Barrett and published by O'Reilly. I paid $10 at Borders and what a bargain! It's filled with answers for every newbie.
