Question Strange problems with Catalyst Drivers installation on Mandriva


One of the members of http://www.mandrivaclub.pl forums reported a very strange issue with Catalyst Drivers installation process. After taking care of all the necessary requirements and running the installation script of the drivers provided by AMD/ATI, it gave her some errors in the console

Code:
==================================================
ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager
==================================================
Detected configuration:
Architecture: i686 (32-bit)
X Server: X.Org 7.1 and later releases
DKMS part of installation failed.  Please refer to /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log for details
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.C19203

The /usr/share/ati/fglrx-install.log showed only

Code:
Errors during DKMS module removal
Errors during DKMS module removal
[Error] Kernel Module : Failed to add fglrx-8.501 to DKMS

None of us was able to find a solution. Googling haven't been of much help either this time, as it gave back only two results, of which one website is in Russian, and the other in Spanish, I guess...
Did anyone ran onto a similar problem? What could be wrong?

Hi, dkms, (dynamic kernel module service) may be in use by another module.

You may need to remove the package rpm -e --nodeps dkms-fglrx, or something (ati, radeon).

Other wise the dkms module should not stop the ati driver from loading.

try lsmod to see what is loaded.

dkms is used for many things. Uninstall dkms and dkms-common at your own risk.

hope this helps a bit.

regards, Glenn
