  • fireglcontrolpanel + FC6

    If you are encountering an issue when generating Fedora FC6 RPMs with the fglrx 8.29.6 drivers, read this thread.

    Prior to posting make sure kernel-devel, kernel-headers, qt-devel, and all of the standard development libraries and tools are installed and working.

    File not found: /tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.28.8-1-32131-root/tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.28.8-1.fc6-root-root/usr/bin/fireglcontrolpanel
    This problem has appeared to pop up with some users. Nothing with fireglcontrolpanel had changed from the 8.28.8 to 8.29.6 drivers when it comes to the Fedora packaging scripts, and no users had reported problems with FC5. So far I have installed well over a dozen Fedora 6 ATI machines and haven't run into this problem (I came across it once or twice a few weeks ago on Rawhide).

    If you are one of these users with build troubles, try building fireglcontrolpanel from source to see if it works or what errors are outputted.

    To grab the source, pass the argument of --extract to the 8.29.6 driver installer. It will then make the fglrx-install folder. From there, grab fglrx-install/common/usr/src/fglrx/fglrx_panel_sources.tgz and extract the contents.

    Run make in the extracted folder from fglrx_panel_sources.tgz. If the compilation errors out, post the output. Thanks.

      You have qt-devel and libraries installed, correct? For Qt 3.3 (not Qt4).

          If I recall, Qt 3.3.7 is the latest in the 3.3 branch, which is probably the "newer version". So do you also have qt-devel-3.3* installed?

            yes.
            qt-devel-3.3.7-0.1.fc6.i386.rpm is already installed

            thanks again for your patience.

              Hey all, I figured out how to fix it. I extracted the package and examined the makefile for the control panel, and it seems to be assuming that the qt libraries are always in /usr/lib64/qt-3.3/lib64 (/usr/{LIB_DIR}/{MK_QTDIR}/{LIB_DIR}) when it should be /usr/lib64/qt-3.3/lib64. I got the package to generate properly by creating a symbolic link lib64 to lib/. Everything worked fine after that.

                Erm, I meant to say that it should be looking for qt libs in /usr/lib64/qt-3.3/lib. Sorry for any confusion.

                    Does it work out with 8.30.3?

                      I just saw the thread about them being out after I got 8.29.6 to work. just restarted now after installing 8.30.3 and it is working fine. The control panel still doesn't work but the drivers are working and I just edit my xorf.conf.
                      the gnome menu ati control says:

                      Failed to execute child process "fireglcontrolpanel" (No such file or directory)
                      and the installation:

                      and the installation in terminal:
                      http://linpaste.efnet-linux.com:7000/181

                      but i'm fine with that.

                        Symbolic link hack confirmed to work in 8.30 also.

                          While trying to compile the control panel seperately I got this error:

                          I tried looking around but couldn't find any decent guesses as to what I need to do here. I've got the qt packages required (as far as I can tell) to get this installed, but still a no-go.

                            Did you try creating the symbolic link as mentioned in an earlier post?

                              You know, I may just be blind as a bat or staring at apache config files all day have made me go loopy, but I tried to do as such the best I could. I didn't see any lib64 directories anywhere so I linked /usr/lib64 to /usr/lib and then /usr/lib/qt-3.3/lib64 to /usr/lib/qt-3.3/lib.

                              To me though, it looked like both directory trees showed /usr/lib64/qt-3.3/lib64 in the previous post explaining the link, so maybe I just didn't get it.

                              EDIT: Well, I *did* notice the remark afterwards, and yes, I created the links like the fella said.
