    hi, i would like to report 2 errors installing latest ati driver (8.11) on ubuntu intrepid

    - installing driver with --buildpkg Ubuntu/intrepid, i have this error:

    (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//
    (II) Module dri: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
    compiled for 7.1.0, module version = 1.0.0
    ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.3
    (EE) module ABI major version (0) doesn't match the server's version (1)
    (II) UnloadModule: "dri"

    - installing driver with gui mode (default mode), i have this error:

    The build scripts are wrong. You can not use em until you fix em. Thats what i do in my script:


    • #3
      it's wrong build scripts using first install mode but second error doesn't depend on build script, i think but maybe r300 support dropped.


      • #4
        There are 2 error in the build script - results in not working fglrx kernel module and wrongly installed libs for xserver 1.5.

        a) Makefile not updated, you have to replace that by a newer one in


        b) No XARCH := x740 for intrepid - error in


        Both errors are fixed in the patch included in my script.

          can you explain how to fix these errors with your script?
          one question: can i use phorogit Catalyst Packaging Script to fix these errors?
