Angry fglrx 8.28.8 & kernel 2.6.24

i've downloaded the ati fglrx installer 8.28.8 for my radeon 9000
(previously i tried livna packages but they didnt work)

the problem is it can't compile against 2.6.24 kernel (2.6.24.7-92.fc8)
first it looked for UTS_RELEASE in the wrong header file, i fixed it
then it tried including config.h which has been removed versions ago, i fixed it by copying an old version i found on the net
still it doesnt work; quoting from the log:

make -C /lib/modules/2.6.24.7-92.fc8/build SUBDIRS=/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x modules

Radeon 9000 is supported by the open source "radeon" driver. Proprietary drivers are NOT required.

That would be a problem with wine, the open source radeon drivers for 9000 have 3d support. You really don't have any other choices as your card is no longer supported in fglrx.

The guys are right. That driver is a very old driver (it came out during the Fedora 5 or Fedora 6 era if I remember correctly).

It would take a great amount of patching to try and get it to work with the new kernels. Your best bet is going to be to use the open source drivers. Otherwise you'll need to find a distro which uses an older kernel that will work with that fglrx driver version.
