ATI Radeon 9600 SE and Drivers

Hey guys,

I having so much trouble installing my video card drivers. I have Mandriva Linux 10.1 and a ATI Radeon 9600 SE card. No games would work, and Tux Racer would run very slow. For example in a game:

loading opengl32: QGL_Init: Can't load opengl32 from /etc/ or current dir: /usr/local/games/wolfenstein/opengl32: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You are using software Mesa (no hardware acceleration)!
Driver DLL used:
If this is intentional, add
"+set r_allowSoftwareGL 1"
to the command line when starting the game.
^ That is what I'm trying to change

I found a guide online to help me install the drivers and they are not helping at all.

First off, I downloaded the drivers off the ATI website, they were .run files, I installed them and run fglrxconfig in the konsole. Everything went fine. The next step was install the modules, I go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir and execute './' to build a fully customed kernel module. When I run, I get the following:

ATI module generator V 2.0
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include not found or incomplete
file: /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h

So, I download the source code, install it successfully and try again. This time I get this error.

ATI module generator V 2.0
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include do not match current kernel.
they are versioned as ""
instead of "2.6.11-6mdksmp".
you might need to adjust your symlinks:
- /usr/include
- /usr/src/linux

What can I do now, one problem just leads to another. Please help me someone.

Which kernel are you running, and which version of the source did you download? That error message means that whatever version source code is in /usr/src/linux isn't the same version as that of your current kernel.

(I just went through all of this with my 9800...hate ATI drivers )
