Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

root@cpc-5564:/home/gtl# modprobe fglrx
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/sound, it will be ignored in a future release.
FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.33/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.ko): Invalid module format
I haven't blacklisted the radeon kernel module that I know of.
fglrx: version magic '2.6.33 SMP preempt mod_unload ' should be '2.6.33 SMP mod_unload '
I've seen this mentioned on IRC, too, with various kernel modules built outside of the kernel source tree. Perhaps the kernel config file you compiled the module against doesn't match the config file of the kernel you are using. It looks to me like the kernel module was built with preempt support, but the kernel itself wasn't.
Yeah, I thought you might be one of the people I had talked with :-)
I would just compile the kernel without whatever settings you want, and then recompile the kernel module. It should pick up the new kernel config file you used for your kernel and compile the fglrx module accordingly.
Well, today I upgraded slackware64-13.0 to slackware64-current (now kernel 184.108.40.206)... and my ati driver (fglrx) doesn't install anymore (10.3).
So... I have to follow the steps mlpa described or I can get the proprietary driver (10.3) to install? Before I was running bluewhite64-13.0 with kernel 220.127.116.11 and the driver (10.3) would work nicely.
Well, I am downloading the driver from ubuntu site, let's see what happens.
I just followed those steps (until before "run X") and everything is fine till now. Since I am messing with my home computer from work... the "run X' will have to wait a bit.
