  • So now that ATI 10.04 Driver is out how can i install kernel 2.6.33 properly?

    the current fglrx driver is causing errors when i try to install 2.6.33 kernel
    is there a way to fix it or should i install it anyway and fix the problem within the kernel?

    thanks in advance.

    I use those patches in my script:

    http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ca...x-2.6.33.patch
    http://aur.archlinux.org/packages/ca...6.34-rc4.patch

    Those seem to work well. You should write what distro you use.

        ok. run

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

        then do to put fglrx on hold - the lucid package has not .33/.34 kernel support:

        Code:
        sudo -i
        echo fglrx hold|dpkg --set-selections
        echo fglrx-amdcccle hold|dpkg --set-selections

            My script installs fglrx in a prepatched variant. Just execute it.

                you dont need that extra patch, its included in my script. you need that only for other distros where my script can not used.

                  i'm now in 2.6.33 kernel i'm trying to run install-fglrx-debian.sh using sudo sh install-fglrx-debian.sh but i get

                  Error: No KANOTIX found. Do not ask for support!
                  Error: Can`t be run within X! Use a text console (ALT-CTRL-F1)

                  when i press alt-ctrl-f1 nothing happen it does not response and the strange thing is that it also didn't worked in 2.6.32-21 all i got was a black screen.

                    That is the problem when you have got fglrx installed but no kernel module, then you can not switch it. Best remove fglrx first:

                    Code:
                    sudo -i
                    apt-get remove --purge fglrx
                    rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
                    reboot
