Need help installing ATI Linux driver
I am using Slackware 9.1 which does use .rpm but for some reason, I can't install the ATI driver in the .rpm format
So, using rpm2tgz, I coverted the .rpm to .tgz and tried installing that way
[The instuctions I was following for installation can be found here: http://www.ati.com/support/infobase/4484.html]
Well, I kept encountering problems. I searched the ATI site a bit and discovered that they had information on the problem I was encountering. That information can be found here: http://www.ati.com/support/infobase/4475.html
After reading what ATI suggests to fix this problem, and to continue installing their drivers, I was left totally confused. If someone can read what ATI suggests to do, and understands what to do, PLEASE let me know in terms I can understand. I am new to linux and I am trying to get everything setup (proper drivers, etc).
I am using a ATI RADEON 9200SE PCI video card made by GeXcube if that helps any.
I am currently running the 2.4 kernel, or at least that is what it says when I type "kernelversion" in a terminal session.

Try installing your kernel source files to /usr/src.
Then symlink them to /usr/src/linux by doing
ln -s kernel-source-x.x.x linux
Now try the rpm/tgz again. If that didn't help post more about the error that you are getting.
Hope that helps
