    kernel and kernel-devel should be the only kernel-related packages you need.

    If you're using the --buildpkg, what is the complete output.
    Yes, I'm using --buildpkg. The complete output is:

    --------------------------------
    Creating directory fglrx-install
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.
    Uncompressing ATI Proprietary Linux Driver-8.27.10........................................... .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ........................................
    ==================================================
    ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager
    ==================================================
    Generating package: Fedora/FC5
    Please install an appropriate Linux kernel module build package.
    Probably kernel-devel in this case.
    If you've compiled a custom kernel, make sure /usr/src/linux exists
    and the source tree matches the currently running kernel.
    -----------------------------------

    I've looked in the script ati-packager.sh that generates the message,
    and it is testing for /lib/modules/${kernel_variant}/build/include/linux/version.h, as I mentioned. I think the problem is that the kernel-devel package has put include/linux/version.h under /usr/src/kernels/${kernel_variant}.
    I don't know whether the rest of the script actually depends on the files being under /lib/modules.

      What specific kernel version are you using? I haven't come across such an issue with kernel-devel myself, though I will try to get an answer for you from Niko (the author of the main Fedora packaging scripts).

        rpm -qf /lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2157_FC5/build/include/linux/version.h
        returns
        kernel-devel-2.6.17-1.2157_FC5

        rpm -qf /lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2157_FC5/build
        returns
        kernel-2.6.17-1.2157_FC5

        ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2157_FC5/build
        returns
        lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 47 Jul 15

        At first glance, something's broken on his end. Or he doesn't actually have
        kernel-devel installed.

        Did you try reinstalling kernel-devel?

          My problem was that my kernel and kernel-devel were out of step. When I installed kernel-devel with yum, it didn't mention that I needed to update the kernel package. The updated kernel package gives me the symlink to /lib/modules, which was missing before.

            8.27.10 supports 3d acceleration on my Radeon 9200 video card. On both 8.26 and 8.25 it was broken (had to use a patch from 8.24 driver version). I am running Kubuntu Dapper.

              FC5 Problems

              I updated my ATI drivers tonight from 8.26 to 8.27.10 and am having a strange problem. If I execute "glxinfo" as myself, it says I only have "Indirect Rendering". If I run it as su, it says I have direct rendering. If, after doing "glxinfo" as root, I run it again as myself, it still reports "Indirect Rendering". "glxgears" gives about 200 FPS as my usual userid and just over 250 FPS as root. Clearly something is not right.

              The output of "uname -a":

                What distribution are you using? Did you use the packaging scripts for that distribution?

                  Release Package

                  I am using the .run file from ATI:

                  ati-driver-installer-8.27.10-x86.run

                  I used the "uninstall" script to remove the 8.26 version, which was working fine.
