VMA API hoes!
I was installing the ATI Radeon 9700 Pro drivers, and got an error when the installer checked for VMA API version. Acording to the log, the versions are inconsistent.
So far I have deduced the VMA is part of Virtual Memory (Administration perhaps?), but I see no reason why it has to do with 3D drivers.
And still, I have not been able to locate where is that the problem resides. How do I upgrade my VMA? How can I know what version I have? I suppose it depends heavily on the Kernel, since the Kernel is supposed to work with all that obscure mumbo jumbo. As a note, I installed SuSE 8.1 Pro, which has the 2.4.19GB-SuSE Kernel (a modified 2.4.19 I presume), and then I upgraded to the vanilla 2.4.22 Kernel. Maybe that's where the inconsistency lies? I do not know.
Please let me into any info you may have, thanks!
