Fedora Core 2 test and ATI driver problems


I'm trying to install the latest ATI video drivers for Linux. I'm running the Fedora Core 2 test release. The name of the RPM is: fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.6.i386.rpm.

First I tried to install the RPM:

root@localhost root]# rpm -Uvh fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.6.i386.rpm
/etc/security/selinux/src/policy/file_contexts/file_contexts: No such
file or directory
Preparing...
########################################### [100%]
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of
fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.6 conflicts with file from package
XFree86-Mesa-libGL-4.3.0-45.0.1

Because of the warning, I did rpm -Uvh --force fglrx*.rpm and it appeared to install fine.

The ATI driver prompted me to compile a kernel module by going into /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod and run make.sh. I attempted to do this:

[root@localhost build_mod]# ./make.sh
ATI module generator V 2.0
==========================
initializing...
Error:
XFree86 drm includes at /lib/modules/2.6.1-1.65/build/include/../drivers/char/drm do not fit this driver.
This driver is designed to only work with X4.1.0 or higher.
You can match this by getting Linux kernel 2.4.8 or higher.

Please advise. Without this video driver, I can't play my favorite game Savage from www.s2games.com on Linux

Has anyone figured this one out yet? I guess the issue is I'm trying to use ATI's Radeon fglrx driver with the 2.6 core.
