  • 8.41.7 and F7

    I try build the rpm for the new 8.41.7 driver on Fedora 7 ( with --buildpkg Fedora/F7 ) but it doesn't work well and I got some errors.
    Is someone found a way to install this drivers on F7 X86_64 ? thanks.

    ( sorry for my very poor english ..lol )

          This solution is not perfect way.
          but, I'm successsed build pkg in Fedora 7 X86_64.


          1st, extracted new ati-dirver.
          2nd, edited ati-packager.sh file. (insert red part)
          3th, build pkg.
          4th, updated pkg.
          Code:
          ./ati-driver-installer-8.41.7-x86.x86_64.run --extract fglrx
          cd fglrx
          vi packages/Fedora/ati-packager.sh
          
              # Same work around for 32-on-64
              if [ "${release_arch}" = 'x86_64' ]; then
                mkdir -p ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/lib/dri
                #mv ${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/* \
                 #${TMP_RPM_BUILD_DIR}/usr/lib/dri
                #ln -fs ../../../../lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so
                popd &> /dev/null
              fi
          
          ./ati-installer.sh 8.41.7 --buildpkg Fedora/F7
          cd ..
          rpm -Uvh *.rpm
          5th, you must correctly linking to library files.
          Code:
          mv /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so /usr/lib/dri
          ln -fs /usr/lib/dri/fglrx_dri.so /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/fglrx_dri.so
          
          rm -fr /usr/lib64/xorg/lib*
          ln -fs /usr/lib64/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib64/xorg/libGL.so
          ln -fs /usr/lib64/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib64/xorg/libGL.so.1
          ln -fs /usr/lib64/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib64/xorg/libGL.so.1.2
          ln -fs /usr/lib64/fglrx/libfglrx_gamma.so.1.0 /usr/lib64/xorg/libfglrx_gamma.so.1
          ln -fs /usr/lib64/fglrx/libfglrx_gamma.so.1.0 /usr/lib64/xorg/libfglrx_gamma.so.1.0
          ln -fs /usr/lib64/fglrx/libfglrx_tvout.so.1.0 /usr/lib64/xorg/libfglrx_tvout.so.1
          ln -fs /usr/lib64/fglrx/libfglrx_tvout.so.1.0 /usr/lib64/xorg/libfglrx_tvout.so.1.0
          
          rm -fr /usr/lib/xorg/lib*
          ln -fs /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so
          ln -fs /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so.1
          ln -fs /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1.2 /usr/lib/xorg/libGL.so.1.2

            I ran the thing and built a distro specific package for 64bit RHEL 5, which seemed to install correctly and is working for me on x86_64. It's glitchy though.

            [[email protected] ~]$ rpm -qa | grep fglrx
            fglrx64_7_1_0-8.41.7-1
            [[email protected] ~]$ /sbin/lspci | grep ATI

              What are your glitches -

              (and Since I'm the initiator of the damn bug - is this a PCIe card or AGP card - or onboard for that matter --> if this is an AGP card check your agp bus speed in amdccle - if it shows as 0 please tag your relevant info on this bug
