Yes , kernel headers and kernel source are all installed. I think it is a compiler related problem but i am not sure
The method of installing the drivers on Suse seems wildly different from what is used on debian-based systems (I'm glad I use debian
). You seem to be building only one rpm from the ati-driver-installer. When I do the equivalent command with the --buildpkg Debian/lenny setting instead of the Suse setting, I get 4 debian packages (debs) and I only build the module after
having installed the debs. In the old days, openoffice downloaded from the OOo site only came with RPMs and not DEBs and I used alien to convert the RPMSs to DEBs but there was a one-to-one realtion between RPM and DEB. So this situation is very strange. Anyway, clearly I don't know or understand anything about Suse.
