  • fglrx kernel module compile failed

    Hey guys,

    I've been trying to compile the kernel module for my system but it fails with this following message:

    Use 8-10 driver.

      Hi, thanks for the quick reply, this is the 8.10 driver compilation. It still fails to compile into the kernel as a module.

        You are right, 8-10 needs the same patch as 8-9.

          What patch do you speak of =S? I wasn't aware of any patches.

                  Funnyly it works in my script If you use Debian or Ubuntu you can use it:

                  http://kanotix.com/files/install-fglrx-debian.sh

                  Do NOT try this with xserver 1.5 as the current fglrx driver does not support it. Put the ati installer into /usr/src dir to avoid download.

                    Maybe the reason why it doesn't work is because the patches are not for my distro? I use OpenSUSE 11.

                    Would that be why? but I don't see how it correlates if that's the case...

                    Thanks,
