I'd successfully installed ati propietary drivers (even graphical aceleration) on my debian 3.1 with the 2.6 default kernel.
Then I decided to install a new kernel 2.6.16 through www.kernel.org
(all ok), followed the same process to install the driver (you know, sh ati_driver[...]), but I couldn't get it to work with aceleration.
My main question is:
How does the installer know where to place the ati module and where is it placed? I'm afraid that not module is shown when I lsmod...
I suppose I have to install the driver for each kernel I have in the system, am I rigth?
Is the symbolic link linux placed in /usr/src really important?
And also related with this:
If I have multiple kernels, how can I specify which modules I want to load depending on the kernel I boot?
Sorry for the police quiz
Thanks in advance!!
