Problem installing ATI drivers not covered in what I've read


I'm running an ATi 9100 card from PowerColor but it wouldn't be the problem, I don't believe.

I go to install the drivers according to the website and it redirects me to the step where you have to execute ./make.sh -- and I get the error 'permission denied'. I'm a half-newb, anyone got a clue?

Thanks for your time, Neal

you'll likely need to be root (=the super user) to do that.

problem installing ati driver 8.12 on fc10

I have asus eah3650 pci-e video card which uses ati 3650 chip/ I have downloaded "ati-driver-installer-8-12-x86.x86_64.run". When I run the script, after completion, it says to check the /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log which contains the following text:
1) [Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
2) [Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched.
3)[Error] Kernel Module : No kernel module build environment - please consult read

kernel-devel.i686 and kernel-headers.i386 are installed.

When I run aticonfig, and startx, it gives me a garbled screen.

uname - r = 2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686.PAE

My goal is to use multimonitor. Help!!!

you must have a install log from the driver installer post it so someone could help you with this situation of yours. check if you have the kernel devel install gcc kernel headers and etc.

good luck

I have installed kernel-headers.i386 and kernel-devel.i686 already. The contents of the install log are

[Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
[Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched.
[Error] Kernel Module : No kernel module build environment - please consult readme.

You probably need some extra packages.

build-essential
ncurses
ncurses-dev
pkg-config
autoconf
automake
gcc
g++
kernel-headers

And maybe others since it compiles parts of the driver from source. If you can build a kernel from source, you're probably good on dependencies.

I have installed all the packages you mentioned above except g++, which does not seem to be available. Still same log message. What next?
