    I am trying to reproduce your fireglcontrolpanel problem now. I know I experienced a similar issue a while back, but am trying to recall how it was solved.

    If the RPM SPEC file is modified you can get by without building fireglcontrolpanel.

      Just performed another fresh install and updated to Rawhide, no problems with the script or any mention of fireglcontrolpanel being lost.

        Hmmm,

        Thene it must bee something with my fraking installation that's acting up. Micheal do u use gnome or kde, caus I only have gnome installed and since fireglcontrolpanel is qt based maybe I don't have all the necessery stuff installed. Maybe I'l try to install kde and see if it resolves the problem but I doubt it caus it works whene installing from repos wich seams odd. Maybe I have some stuff left somewhere that shouldent bee there. I'm gonna try to erase everything that I can find to get down to a bare minimum installation and see if it fixes anything. Whil report back if I have any luck. Thanks for all the quick replies

          die-hard GNOME user

          The only qt package you should need is qt-devel. When installing FC6pre the install arguments were office & productivity, and then under "customize now" the other options I selected were development tools, GNOME development libraries, X software libraries, and the software development packages.

          To help out more users (and to hopefully prevent a few dozen emails from new users) I am working on a short how-to guide as well as adding some additional functions to that script so 8.29.6 will run nicely with FC6.

            Yes,

            got it working with the drivers from the repos, still can't build the drivers becaus the fireglcontrolpanel error.

            I don't realy know what I did diffrent now butt I added som stuff to the xorg.conf and now fglrxinfo works as it should. This is what i added to the xorg.conf
            Section "Extension"
            Option "Composite" "Disable"
            EndSection

            Section "Module"
            Load "ddc"
            Load "bitmap"
            Load "extmod"
            Load "freetype"
            Load "type1"
            Load "vbe"
            Load "dri"
            Load "glx"
            EndSection

            Section "Device"
            Identifier "Videocard0"
            Driver "fglrx"
            BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
            Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
            Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "no"
            Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
            Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
            # Option "DynamicClocks" "on"
            Option "ForceMonitors" "notv"
            EndSection

            Section "DRI"
            Mode 0666
            EndSection
            I didnt use the aticonfig --initial cause that only gave me
            Load "glx"
            Load "dri"
            under the Module section.

            Don't realy know why the Module section wasent even present by default in the xorg.conf and just having
            Load "glx" and Load "dri" in that section didn't work.

            Thanks for all the help, hope some one can figure out the fireglcontrolpanel error or it will be fixed in the next version of the driver. I also encounterd a strange thing whene trying to build the drivers sometimes the stuff stayed in /tmp and other times nothing was there to find ATI related.
            But since everything seams to be working now I sattisfied, but can admit it is ignoring to havent solved the build error.

              I can't remember exactly wich packages i selected during installation but I think I didn't select any development packages or only a few maybe there is where my problem lies, just a guess, if I have the time during this week I'l try to make a fresh install and select some more packages and give it a go again and pray for better luck.

                I still haven't been able to reproduce the fireglcontrolpanel problem in this environment. The only things I can think of off hand is not having all of the development packages installed.

                Here was a working config file: http://www.phoronix.com/redblog/down...c6-sample.conf

                I'll continue to try things out through the final release on Tuesday.

                    Hi again,

                    Installed some more development packages, "Development Libraries, Development tools, Gnome Software Development, Legacy Software Development and X Software Development" but still could not manage to build the driver. Tomorrow FC6 hits the market for real and I will make a clean install and see if i get any better luck this time around. and try to be more carefull whene deselecting packages during the installation.

                      Do you by chance have SELinux enabled? I had to disable it to get the thing to build...haven't looked into the dirty details yet though.
