ATI driver: ATI 9600XT failed dependencies
 
Hey all! I plan to install WineX on my new slackware 10 comp but I had to install my video drivers first. When trying to install ATI's driver for the card I recieved the following error:

Code:

<root/Desktop/fglrx-4.3.0-3.11.1.i386.rpm';echo RESULT=$?
error: Failed dependencies:
        /bin/sh is needed by fglrx-4.3.0-3.11.1
        ld-linux.so.2 is needed by fglrx-4.3.0-3.11.1

        libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.0) is needed by fglrx-4.3.0-3.11.1
RESULT=1

The problem could be that Slackware 10 uses Xfree86 version 4.4.x and this was designed for 4.3.0 by ATI.. Is there a way to revert to 4.3.0 easily?

Just in case you need to know my card is an ATI Radeon 9600XT

Thanks in advance for reading my post!

hiya

I'm running slackware 9.1 with a 9700 pro, firtsly have you checked that /usr/X11R6/lib is in your path? Can be added with
Code:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/X11R6/lib
secondly if using the drivers from the ati website then u need to run
Code:

rpm2tgz fglrx-xxx.rpm
b4 install. Then u can install the tgz with either
Code:

pkgtool
or
Code:

installpkg
as root.

Then go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build directory look for make.sh. If not already an exe file then issue
Code:

chmod +x make.sh
execute the make.sh
Code:

./make.sh
hopefully no errors will pop up. Then go to /lib/modules/fglrx/ as instructed at the bottom of the output, do a chmod on make_install.sh if needed. run that.

If all goes well you should only have to back up the xorg.conf in /etc/X11/ and run fglrxconfig as root. copy /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 to the xorg.conf

add at the end of the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file

Code:

/sbin/modprobe via-agp
or the approperiate agp module name for your chipset.
and add
Code:

/sbin/modprobe fglrx
.

reboot your pc and enter X should be find... if the agp fails you will still get 2D support :)

peace out
:)
