Thumbs down X fails when ATI fglrx driver installed


Hello again. Still trying to get ATI drivers installed...this time I'm on Fedora Core 2 instead of Mandrake. The RPM installs fine...the module build goes well...modprobe appears to work...then I go like this to get the driver to work with Xorg instead of XFree:

cd /etc/X11
mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.backup
ln -sf XF86Config-4 xorg.conf

...but when I restart X I can't get a display, and here's the diagnostics.

I know my mouse is failing in there too, but first things first! My display takes priority over my input device. To this end I've highlighted the relevant part of the diag

Code:

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support

 for help. 
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
I'm unable to get much support from the Rage3d'ers on this so I'm hoping you guru's might be of some help.

My kernel, which is a custom vanilla, has modular support for /dev/agpgart, MTRR enabled, kernel debugging disabled, and DRI Manager disabled (I get the same thing if I enable this)

The problem you're experiencing is that one of the modules doesn't compile on fedora core 2.

Download and install the new, just released drivers (3.11), they should work just fine.
