every time i try to install via rpm, i get error messages.

here's the /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/make.log

try these (with livna repository) as root

1) yum install ati-fglrx ati-fglrx-devel kernel-module-fglrx-$(uname -r)

2) yum install ati-fglrx kernel-module-fglrx* (you might have errors with this one - don't worry and go to step 3)

3) yum install compat-libstdc++

4) fglrxconfig

that worked for me (9700)

good luck!

anyone know where i can go to get an update kernel module for the new kernel release 2.6.11-1.14_FC3???

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi lokeey, if im not wrong all the latest kernels can be found at http://www.kernel.org/

Of course these kernels dont come as rpms. You will have to manually install them.

Otherwise you can wait for a few more weeks to get them through yum updates, installed automatically.

If thereisnt any specific reason to run the latest kernel, i would recommend you to wait.

cool! i can hang for a few more weeks. no biggie!

Well, after i posted my message, i did a yum update and guess what????

The new kernel is there for update.

If you have set up your yum.conf according to fedorafaq.org then just type, yum update and you will get it:)

The new one is 2.6.11-1.14 enjoy!!!

I'm pretty sure that if you installed the ATI drivers with 2.6.10-xxx, they will not work with 2.6.11-xxx because they get rebuilt on the fly for your running kernel version, and the modules are installed in the /lib/modules/2.6.10-xxx directory structure. If you boot 2.6.10-xxx, uninstall the ATI drivers, reboot to 2.6.11, and re-install the ATI drivers, they should work unless they just simply aren't compatible. It's a pain to use third-party drivers this way, but that's generally the way it goes.
