    Can you run amdcccle from terminal and post the output of that?

      thanks for the quick reply, I edited my post just now because after I reset my xorg.conf file, it was fine. AMD CCC opens. I'm actually having some other problems now but I'll make a thread on it in a bit

        ok, now I messed something up again, I can't get the program to open (same problem I mentioned before). I will post what it says in the terminal after running amdcccle as suggested by Michael:

          Unfortunately it doesn't look like there is anything you can do on your end as the problem resides with amdcccle, which is still undergoing some work. I have forwarded your crash output onto AMD -- hopefully the problem will be fixed for you in this month's driver.

            I have installed the 8.35 drivers and very surprised that I have got most things OK. I upgraded to latest kernel and got ipw3945 working first go. Now my issue with the drivers is that the xorg.conf file generated is incomplete. Below is my current file. I will look at copying some things in from the backup copies.

            What are the main bits to add? glxinfo reports that I am using Mesa (uck).

                Thanks for that. I hadn't seen the AIGLX disable before. I got acceleration happening by copying in some of the backed up xorg's. I have also installed XGL and got it running however, I can't get Beryl to run. It complains about XFree86 DRI missing. My current Xorg now looks like this;

                  Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.wX3805
                  I thought this newest version didn't include fireglcontrolpanel
                  anymore. What is going on??
                  I checked /usr/bin/ and there is no fireglcontrolpanel there.
                  Any ideas?

                  I found a workaround to the issue above incase anyone is interested.

                  After executing this:

                  Code:
                  sh ./ati-driver-installer-8.35.5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC5
                  ctrl+z the process after it says it has extracted the pkg. Then cd to the /tmp ATI directory and find . -name "fireglcontrolpanel" and delete it . This should exist in a usr/bin directory.

                  After that just fg the process and it will build the rpms successfully.

                    hi,guy,I suffered from the problem ,too. and now, I have solved it. I found that a script named check-files in the "/usr/lib/rpm/" directory will be excuted when the error appears, so I edited the script and deleted the contents except the first line.then,I run the command
                    sh ./ati-driver-installer-8.35.5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC5
                    Everything is going well,and finally,it generate sevral rpm files.
                    I think there must be something wrong when the check-files was excuted,may be it's a bug !

                      I've been trying get the fglrx driver running on my custom 2.6.21 and after all the googling and breaking my head, I'm still unable to get it going.

                      To begin with, I intalled the driver using yum and it goes fine, but the only problem is that I cannot use my custom 2.6.21 kernel. I then cleaned it up to reinstall for my custom kernel. For this I got the driver from ATI and tried two approaches both of which failed in the same place(aticonfig: munmap_chunk()), which is same as above
                      1. Using ATI's install GUI
                      2. I built the RPM and try to install them.

                      Here are the logs -

                      Any update on this problem? Any suggestions? Any pointers ?

                      Any help greatly appreciated.

                      Thanks,
