    It looked like it had a problem building, so I didn't even bother. I did it just now, which is the installation that did not report errors in the installer, and it returned this:

    Code:
    - recreating module dependency list
    - trying a sample load of the kernel modules
    FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.27.7-smp/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    failed.

    use the dmesg command after it fails, just like the above post says
    just type it into the terminal
    Code:
    dmesg
    You may only need the last 10-20 lines.
    Try
    Code:
    modprobe fglrx

    The only thing besides wlan messages from dmesg was:
    Code:
    fglrx: Unknown symbol pci_disable_msi
    fglrx: Unknown symbol pci_enable_msi
    And modprobe fglrx yields:

    FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.27.7-smp/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    Same stuff as was in the logfile... I think it's odd that the graphical installer didn't even mention that it couldn't build it correctly. How do I fix the Unknown symbol pci... thing?

    Ok, according to this site here that I found on google by searching the pci_enable_msi thing, Slack 12.2 cannot use the newest drivers without a kernel rebuild. So I got the 8.12 version, and it seems to have installed fine. I'm restarting xorg now.

    Update: It still didn't work, so I forced ati-config to generate a new xorg.conf file
    Code:
    ati-config --initial -f
    , and now it's running wonderfully. Now I just need to fix my scroll wheel and back/forward buttons on my mouse, and I'm ready to go! Thanks for all of your help on this topic!

    Here's the snippet of my xorg file from CRUX. It's an optical mouse with a wheel:
    Code:
    Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier     "Mouse1"
        Driver         "mouse"
        Option         "Protocol" "Auto"
        Option         "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"
    EndSection
    Maybe you can get something out of it for your set-up.

    Lol, thank you both, and I'm sure the bananamen and the config code will help with getting my mouse working right.

    Heh, actually I just commented out what was there and pasted your config, and it works beautifully. Thank you much!
