Compile errors on Radeon Drivers . Any LMKL Junkies around?
I'm trying for the proprietary ATI/Radeon/AMD drivers and they keep falling over in the kernel compile. Doing a manual compile with rubbish piped to a file, I finally see
1. bounds.h not found :-o.
2. mmzone.h MAX_NR_ZONES not defined (warniongs, and errors on this point)
3. mm.h NR_PAGEFLAGS not defined.
This stuff, I gather is all to do with memory allocation in the upper echelons beyond your average 32 bit machine. My laptop has an AMD RS690/SB600 chipset which includes an RS690M (=Radeon X1250) in the Northbridge. I can boot the X server on the xf86-video-radeonhd driver, but it's not encouraging.
Where next? Google says Everyone has trouble, but all the answers seem different.
