      Amenzix,
      I used the following command to generate package of ati-driver-installer-8.30.3.run, but it didn't work.

      #./ati-driver-installer-8.30.3.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6

      I got this error message.

      Generating package: Fedora/FC6
      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.
      Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install

      So, I installed the ati driver from linva website by using yum command.

      #yum install kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx

      #rpm -q kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx
      kmod-fglrx-8.31.5-1.2.6.18_1.2849.fc6
      xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-8.31.5-1.lvn6

      But when I started ATI Control Panel, an dialog with error pupped up!

      "Drive does not provide the FirGL X11 extensions! Panel component will operate only partially!"

      OpenGL Vendor was still Mesa!

      # glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"
      Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
      direct rendering: No

      Shuold I do something special after the installation?

      ## cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "EE"
      (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.

      Foxtseng,
      Could you tell me the steps you have done? I don't understand what you did?

      Thanks!

        Alex,

        Check your libGL.so files.

        find / -name libGL.so.1
        and check what you got. some of them may be symbolic links, just take a close look at the targets of the links, which should be libGL.so.1.2
        At least one of them should be at,
        /usr/lib/ati-fglrx/libGL.so.1.2

        and there should be one at,
        /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2

        In my case, these two are not the same, the later is by Mesa, and used by the X11, while the former is by ATI but not used.
        So I created a link,

        #ln -s /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/ati-fglrx/libGL.so.1.2
        (of course, first remove the original link...)

        But this is my case, I cannot sure that it will work for your situation.
        Hope it will be helpful.

        And anyone can take a look at my blog, where I recorded the process to install my hardwares with extreme details. But just too much...
