Ati Driver 8.42 + Mandriva 2008 = Unsolved problems
No, the problem is not even getting to the install. It is failing in the RPM creation when it builds the Mandriva package. It actually says there are TOO many libGL.so's. At this point it can't create a RPM package to install.
The packaging scripts for several distributions (including Mandriva 2008, 2007.1 seems OK) are broken. I installed via GUI installator (and select not to make distribution specific packages) - everithing was OK and driver works excellently for me .
Could you post output of GUI installer? it is logging into /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log.
I've seen one of the dkms rpm's removed when uninstalling the Mandriva ATI drivers.
Usually the dkms-2.0.17-13mdv2008.0
DarkFoss, did you manage to get compiz working?
I extracted the files from the installer (./ati...run --extract (directory)), then I tinkered with some scripts and the ati.spec, and managed to build the packages.
Once installed, it seems that the driver load OK, then I've tinkered with xorg to enable AIGLX and so, but I can't get neither Compiz nor xgl working.
Instead, I have an error already reported here, but referred to SUSE. The solution suggested is not applicable to Mandriva, because SUSE uses different files.
As a clue for other people, when rpmbuild is executed, show errors about duplicated files. This is due to (in %files in the spec file):
-One line refers to a directory
-Then other line refers to a file deeper in the same directory indicated in other previous line.
Then rpmbuild says that a file is found more than once.
