Installing ATI GL drivers
I have run the make.sh script and now its the make_install.sh script. When I run it I get the following error.
Thanks in advance
Is kernel-source installed?
# Compiling/installing kernel modules
You will need to have installed:
1. The developmental packages (compiler)
2. The kernel source code that matches your running kernel
3. The module source or install code
Check out your system and look under the hood and see if you installed the stuff you need to do the job. Open an x terminal and type in this sequence of commands to see what kernel we are running and see if you have the kernel source installed:
If you don't see something similiar to this (but in color), you will need to install the kernel source.
NOTE: I noticed that Red Hat didn't make the symbolic link /usr/src/linux that all of the INSTALL files that I have read mentioned that I need, so I may as well make one now to save editing the files in the source code to install.So, I'll make it just now:
Next, did I install the compiler?
If you don't have those two things installed, you have to install them first off your install CD.
If they are installed, download the source and happy comiling. :tisk: Make sure you carefully read the README and INSTALL files after extracting and before compiling/installing. :study:
# Guides to software management
LNAG - How do I install a program I downloaded from the Internet?
Rute Guide's software explanation
You might want to check out CheckInstall to manage source code installations/uninstallation
Running the make.sh script required the kernel source code to be installed, and I had installed it previously for an alsa install which worked.
I do I have the correct version of the kernel src installed - I just double checked.
Gcc is definatly installed as I do alot of programming and use that compiler.
However there was not a link between /linux and the latest kernel source so I created it but I got the same error.
Its something to do with loading the module.
