ATI Drivers and Slackware 10.2 Question


This is what is available on the ATI Website. Do I need to download both the "ATI Driver Installer" and an "X-Window Version"? If so Which one do I need for Slackware 10.2? Slackware 10.2 uses Xorg 6.8.2 correct? So i need the X.org6.8? I found a couple different posts of how to do it but I'm not sure which is the right way to do it. Thanks in advance. I have a 9800 Pro. I guess my real question is do I download both the installer and X.org 6.8 driver?

The packages under the "X-Windows Version" header are RPM's. You don't want or need those.
The installer is a program that will build and install your drivers for your machine, regardless of the package format. That's what you want.
