9. Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance. ( Now i have made a few unnecessary posts so i can insert urls.. )

EDIT:
Recompiled the kernel and now I get this:

Shoulden't radeon 7000 work almost by default?

URL's are easy to post, have a look at the instructions,

We need to see the error messages before we can offer any assistance.

Hmmm...so let's see...download the rpm to / (the root directory). Then do rpm2tgz...and do tar -xzvf fglr*.tgz. This will untar all contents to the proper locations.
then cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
and do ./make.sh

Then do cd ..
and do ./make_install.sh

Then do fglrxconfig (you may need the entire path)

That's it. Now as for the errors, post them so we can pick em apart!!!

The problem was that it seems one has to make 5 posts before being able to make posts containing URLs, so dirren tried to post the URLs without actually posting them (yep, it's "the art of fighting without fighting"!). Dirren, your post is blatantly ugly and an insult to intelligent life!

http://kaffe.troligt.com/dirren/screenshot-1.png (138 kB)
http://kaffe.troligt.com/dirren/screenshot-2.png (145 kB)

Weird errors, although an error log would have been a bit more handy, I think.

First, are you using a kernel that you compiled? If so...

1) Is your kernel compiled for i586 or higher?

2) Did you properly make and install modules?

Any other ideas?

Hopefully someone with a little more experience can help out also. I am not sure why the unresolved sysmbols. I would think you'd get that if you upgrade the kernel source, and the kernel modules are not properly installed, or when if you don't run make modules and make modules_install. Not really sure though.

Could be old files in the source tree...this is what I would do if it were me...just a suggestion.

I would first copy /usr/src/linux/.config somewhere.
Then make mrproper...
copy .config back
make oldconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make install
make modules
make modules_install

This will clean out all the old stuff.

You're trying to install the fglrx on a 7000 ...???
Ati's closed source drivers don't support anything lower than the 8500.

Your only option is XFree's Dri "radeon" driver.
A minor adjustment to /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 should be all that's required.
Usually just adding, to Section "modules"...
Load "dri"
Load "glx"
...and changing driver to "radeon" in Section "device"
will do the trick
Oh! and you may also need this new section so 3d is available to all users, not only root.
Code:
Section "DRI"
    Mode        0666
EndSection
