    Ati drivers for Mandrake ( ATI MR 9800 )


    I'm having the same problem as mentioned before but i cannot make a custom kernel....Yes, I'm a nOOb. I'm trying to install the new ati drivers. I was wondering if anyone could hellp me...thanks*****also note that I just installed Mandrake 10.1 powerpack+ this morning and this is the first thing I did.

    here's where I'm stuck at:

    ATI module generator V 2.0
    ==========================
    initializing...
    Error:
    kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include do not match current kernel.
    they are versioned as ""
    instead of "2.6.8.1-12mdksmp".
    you might need to adjust your symlinks:
    - /usr/include
    - /usr/src/linux
    [root@localhost build_mod]#

    Care to tell how you got the right kernel-source to get detected by the ATI driver's make.sh script?

    Well, I'm running Mandrake 10.1 with the stock kernel. I never used that check.sh script because I only worked for XFree. First of all, what *nix are you running? "uname -r" should give you what kernel version your running. PM me and I can maybe help you in a more direct fashion instead of forum posts( as I don't check everyday ).

    I was able to finally get the kernel and make fglrx.

    I am however having another problem with the drivers. I am getting:

    Fatal server error:
    Caught singal 11. Server aborting.

    and

    XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
    after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

    I do get a couple of unresolved symbols but I am told that they're probably not the cause of this.

    Hope you can help. Thanks in advance!

    Help, please!
    I have same problem:
    Code:
    ATI module generator V 2.0
    ==========================
    initializing...
    Error:
    kernel includes at /lib/modules/2.6.18/build/include do not match current kernel.
    they are versioned as ""
    instead of "2.6.18".
    you might need to adjust your symlinks:
    - /usr/include
    - /usr/src/linux
    But kernel and sources of kernel are same! And symlink(in /usr/src) is correct: /usr/src/linux-> kernel2.6.18.

    where I did be mistaken?
