Problems with the ATI driver from AMD (SLACKWARE 11)
I've bought a laptop HP Compaq nx6325 and I'm having problems with the driver for my ATI Radeon Expression 200M. I downloaded the driver from ATI site, installed correctly, but when I try to active the module this problem occurs:
root@brevleq:/home/brevleq# modprobe fglrx
/lib/modules/18.104.22.168/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o: /lib/modules/22.214.171.124/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o: unresolved symbol _mmx_memcpy
Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license
and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access
GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or
user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they
can help you.
/lib/modules/126.96.36.199/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o: insmod /lib/modules/188.8.131.52/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o failed
/lib/modules/184.108.40.206/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.o: insmod fglrx failed
like we can see the module don't use the GPL license, how can I active this module?? Why the property modules from vmware runs well if they don't use GPL too??
My english isn't good, I hope you understand what I want to say!!
Thanks for all!
The root of the problem could be that you are still using a 2.4 kernel; the latest ATI drivers may well be written with 2.6 in mind. That's only a wild guess, but I do know that the ATI drivers runs fine on all eight of my Linux distros (all of them use 2.6).
I'll try to compile my kernel with mmx suport!!
