    For Livna RPMs, last time I used them you had the option of installing the control panel or not. However, with the official AMD installer once you pass --buildpkg Fedora/FC6 that is the only option and it will execute the scripts to build all of the RPMs. The way to get the fireglcontrolpanel out of the build stack would be to comment out or eliminate the code in the packaging script.

      I am not sure how to do this. You mean comment out some lines in the scripts attached before the binary code, or we have to extract out all the stuff first and then play with them?

        Run

        ./amd-driver-name.run --extract

        Then in

        fglrx-install/packages/Fedora

        open ATI-fglrx.spec-tmpl and remove or comment:

        %{_bindir}/fireglcontrolpanel
        In ati-packager.sh open that up and remove or comment out:

        Code:
             if [ ! -x ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/bin/fireglcontrolpanel ]; then
               mkdir ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/src/ati/fglrx_panel_sources
               pushd ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/src/ati/fglrx_panel_sources &> /dev/null
               tar xzf ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/src/ati/fglrx_panel_sources.tgz
               sed -i 's|^LIBQT_DYN = qt$|LIBQT_DYN = qt-mt|' Makefile
               sed -i 's|STRIP = strip|STRIP = @echo strip is disabled for:|' Makefile
               sed -i 's|BASENAME =  fireglcontrol|BASENAME =  fireglcontrolpanel|' Makefile
               [ -n "$QTDIR" ] || . /etc/profile.d/qt.sh && make &> /dev/null
               install -p -m 0755 fireglcontrolpanel ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/bin/fireglcontrolpanel
               popd &> /dev/null
             fi
        and then that should probably be it. Then move back into the main fglrx-install folder and run

        ./ati-installer.sh 8.31.5 --buildpkg Fedora/FC6

        and it should build without fireglcontrolpanel. If I recall correctly, those should be all of the fireglcontrolpanel references you need to remove. If it still gives you problems when building, just follow where it gives you the problem and then comment/remove those lines.

          Sorry for my stupid mistake.

          I did not remove the old module after upgrade. So, after a reboot and create a symbolic link to the right libGL.so.1.2, it works fine now.

          Livna's fglrx 8.31.5 driver is okay.

          Sorry for the confusion. Maybe the whole thread should be removed.
