Error inserting fglrx: No such device


Hi,

I've seen that this might be a common problem, but so far I not found an exact soultion description. I'm currently running Red Hat Enerprise Linux 5 on a desktop station. I'm about to install an ATI FirePro 2460 graphical board. I have downloaded the latest driver from ATI and during installation I have encoutred the following problems:

fglrx-install.log:
You must change your working directory to /lib/modules/fglrx
and then call ./make_install.sh in order to install the built module.
- recreating module dependency list
- trying a sample load of the kernel modules
failed.
[Error] Kernel Module : Failed to install compiled kernel module - please consult readme.
[Message] Kernel Module : update initramfs not required

Any ideas to where the "readme" should be located?

When manually executing make_install.sh the following error message was encountred:

[root@lnx673 fglrx]# ./make_install.sh
- recreating module dependency list
- trying a sample load of the kernel modules
FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.18-128.el5/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.ko): No such device
failed.

I have not yet installed the board - might that solve the problems?

Regards,
claus

Yes. At time of inserting the module, the presence of a fitting device is checked; else it is not inserted.
