Can't install Radeon 9600 Drivers (SuSe 9.1 XFree 86 4.3)
I've tried to install the official Radeon 9600 drivers from ATI.com to no avail.
When I install the drivers using rpm -Uh --force as instructed, I get the following error:
I tried to follow their instructions, but I get a "Permission denied" error message, even though I'm logged in as root.
*** Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
*** WARNING ***
Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.
You must go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir
and execute './make.sh' to build a fully customed kernel module.
Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.
(see readme.txt for more details.)
As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated
OpenGL will not work and 2D graphics will lack performance.
*** Error: no kernel module build environment - please consult readme.
I have everything that is required for me to install the drivers:
Kernel source code
Kernel header (include) files
Actually, I am unsure about the kernel header files....what is their filename for SuSe 9.1.
If you can't tell already, I'm a Linux newbie, but I really want to get it working.
I've posted this question on linuxquestions.org, but was completely ignored :(
Anyway, any help you all can give me would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: By the way, I did follow all the steps listed under:
but it didn't help me.
