ATI Proprietary Linux x86 Driver


Hi

I'll get straight to business. When I try installing the Ati drivers I get a couple of odd messages.
But before I tell you the errors, I'll tell you my system specs:

Intel Celeron 2.4GHz
Power Color Radeon 9550, 256Mb DDR
256Mb PC2700 RAM
Asus P4533 Motherboard.
OS: Mandrake Linux 10.1

Now the errors:
First after I have installed the .rpm of the package I get this message:

*** Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
*** WARNING ***
Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.
You must go to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod subdir
and execute './make.sh' to build a fully customed kernel module.
Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'
in order to install the module into your kernel's module repository.
(see readme.txt for more details.)

As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated
OpenGL will not work and 2D graphics will lack performance.

failed.
*** Error: no kernel module build environment - please consult readme.
*** Warning ***
The QT based control panel application did not load in any version.

So then I cd to /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod and run the command ./make.sh. When I do this I get the following error:
bash: ./make.sh: Permission denied

This also happens when I go into /lib/modules/fglrx and run the command ./make_install.sh

Whats wrong?

just like you'd execute the file, go to the directory it's in, and type chmod 700 file.ext

ok so I did chmod 755 but now look:
[root@localhost Documents]# cd /
[root@localhost /]# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
[root@localhost build_mod]# chmod 755 make.sh
[root@localhost build_mod]# ./make.sh
ATI module generator V 2.0
==========================
initializing...
kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include not found or incomplete
file: /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h
[root@localhost build_mod]# cd ..
[root@localhost fglrx]# chmod 755 make_install.sh
[root@localhost fglrx]# ./make_install.sh

you need the sources code to your kernel if you look on you distribution disk it should be there i'm using suse 9.2 and just went to add new software and searched for kernel sources. or find out your kernel version and look on the official kernel site
