Problems installing Ati Radeon 9200 proprietary driver in Slack 10
 
When I try to rpm -Uh --force fglrx_6_8_0-8.8.25-1.i386.rpm the driver I get the following:

error: Failed dependencies:

I have all the stuff required installed (it is a full slack installation).
Thanks in advance.

as root,
rpm2tgz fglrx_6_8_0-8.8.25-1.i386.rpm
installpkg fglrx_6_8_0-8.8.25-1.i386.tgz
cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
sh make.sh
cd ..
sh make_install.sh

then run fglrxconfig as user.

I'm writing this from links, so I guess it doesn't work :D. I followed all the steps described in a tutorial on this forum, but the result was a X server that wouldn't start. The warning I get is:
(WW) fglrx: no matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found.
Symbol ...bla bla
I must have done something wrong ...

do you have xorg 6.8?
if not, then get xorg 6.8 :]
if yes, then make sure you run fglrxconfig and move it into /etc/X11/ , backup you xorg.conf then rename XF86Config-4 as xorg.conf, well i dont know why it made a XF86Config-4 if i downloaded it for xorg6.8 but hey, it's ATi =/.

i've installed fglrx and run fglrxconfig. after finishing the configuration, it wrote XF86Config-4 file in etc/X11 then like you said i changed the file name to xorg.conf. after renameing the file i tried to start x window but the outcome was black screen . what did i do wrong ? i've got the xorg ati installation form www.ati.com and configured it but stile the result didn't work.
ps

Ati's Linux drivers are crap!
I've just installed Slackware 10.1, with xorg 6.8 and all that stuff.
The driver works for glxgears and some gl screensavers but not for any games (doom3 for example).
Also when I try to restart X the computer freezes (come on people, lets get serious A LINUX system shouldn't do that!!! that's wizouze's buisiness!)
PS: when I start Doom3 the computer freezes in a couple of secs.
