I've been trying to install the driver for my radeon 9700. I followed the steps mentioned on the ati website and encountered a first problem. Luckily this was mentioned: 1) tried to create the /usr/src/linux symlink but that didn't resolve the problem. So next 2) had to try build and install 'a kernel module for the ati proprietary linux driver' myself.
Again, followed the easy steps mentioned but this time I got another error which isn't mentioned how to deal with. The first two steps for building the fglrx kernel module is
1) cd / lib/modules/fglrx/buil_mod (ofcourse no problem)
2) sh make.sh
This resulted in the following error message:
error: kernel includes at /lob/modules/2.2.20-4GB-athlon/buil/include do not match current kernel, they are versioned as 2.4.20-4GB instead of 2.4.20-4GB-athlon
You might need to adjust your symlinks:
