  • unable to build rpm packages with 8.33.6

    Hello all,

    I've been trying to install the ATI drivers and have not gotten very far. I get the following errors. I'm running FC6 with kernel version 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6xen.

    Here is part of the output. There was more but I didn't want to paste it all unless it is needed. Thank you in advance for any help.

    ./ati-driver-installer-8.33.6-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6

    Are you intentionally using the Xen kernel? Otherwise switch to a normal i686 kernel.

      Xen or no Xen

      Well...

      Now that I know what the Xen kernel is supposed to be used for, I did want to give it a try. Does the driver not work with Xen?

        The current firegl_public is known not to work with Xen on Fedora Core 6.
