There was a change in 2.6.12.X kernels, slot_name is not used anymore so you get those errors. Try getting a newer version of the driver or searching for a patch on the web.

...or you could try to edit the source code and change any occurence
of "slot_name" to "pci_name"
( that should be just a few times... )

I found two patches after much searching and am running fglrx just fine with 2.6.12.3.

The patches can be found here:

http://mshade.kicks-ass.net:8080/pub...-agpgart.patch
http://mshade.kicks-ass.net:8080/pub...dule_get.patch

Apply them like this:
Code:
cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/
patch -p0 < pathtopatch
Then make as normal. There will be a couple of warnings, but it's working for me

A new ATI-driver will be relaesed in early mid-August, and that driver will have kernel 2.6.12-support. Why don't you wait until then with using kernel 2.6.12?

not only that but this is what I keep seeing even after applying the patches:

What do I do with that?
