Post AMD 64 and Radeon 9800XT Mandrake 10 HELP? ($20 for solution)


I have installed Mandrake 10 and have followed the ATI how several times now and cannot get 3d. I have a asus K8v and a Radeon 9800XT. I get an error that it cannot insert module fglrx. Any ideas, I have tried this in Fedora, Gentoo, & now mandrake, I prefer mandrake and no I am NOT USING the 64 bit version I know there is no 3d There. Yes I have tried the new 3.7.1 drivers. Please help, and to the person (meaning one, sorry I am not rich) helps me get this WORKING I will be happy to send via paypal $20 US.

Unfortunately, I think that you're gonna find that the drivers that ATI supplied are compiled for the 2.4 kernel. On Mandrake 10, you're running the 2.6 kernel. The modules are incompatible withthe kernel. If you want to depreciate the kernel you're using to 2.4, you'll have luck with the ATI drivers, i believe. I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but I'd rather see you spend your energy in the right place, like writing to ATI and asking when they plan to support the 2.6 kernel. BTW, that's a bitchin' card. When you get a module, you're gonna be rockin'

the 3.7 drivers work fine under 2.6.x... there is a thread somewhere in the hardware forum that explains how to get the 9800XT working.. there is a file that you have to modify. something about the card not being found by the driver until the modification is made to the file. I will search for it and post it.

thanks
