3) Xorg is actually upto 7.1 at this time. There is no code difference between xorg 6.9 and xorg 7.0. Xorg 6.9 is monolithic and Xorg 7.0 is modular.
Do I still need it to make open source acceleration work, tho?

4) ... I am not sure if the ati propriatary drivers work with xorg 6.9
No they don't. That's why I joined the thread... It seems like downgrading to xorg 6.8 would be a better idea, time-wise I mean. I still fancy the idea of compiling all of X and Mesa. The scary part is that stats don't show any advantage of setting thigs up the open way. I'm doing this primarily for gaming, so performance is important.

I just saw this topic which apparently covers a similar issue as mine, ao I decided not to open another one :P.

Anyways, here's my problem:

I tried installing the fglrx drivers and the make_install script returns thie error:

Code:
bash-3.1# sh ./make_install.sh
- recreating module dependency list
- trying a sample load of the kernel modules
FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.17.13/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.ko): Operation not permitted
failed.
As you can see, I use the 2.6.17 kernel, and I'm running X.org 7.1 in a Slackware 11 box.

Any suggestions? Help will be very appreciated, thanks

I think your problem is a little bit different, so you may still want to open a new thread...

Have you run the script as a superuser? I'm no longer using Slack, so I can't remember exactly how I did it. I think you need to be root to do that, tho.

sudo telinit 1
make sure lsmod | grep radeon is not present, if so you would probably want to remove it with rmmod as well as rmmod drm, then try modprobe fglrx
