Here's the link to pastebin.

A less /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE gives this:
Code:
(EE) fglrx(0): Hasn't establisted DRM connection
(EE) fglrx(0): Hasn't establisted DRM connection
(EE) fglrx(0): atiddxDriScreenInit failed, GPS not been initialized. 
(EE) fglrx(0): XMM failed to open CMMQS connection.
Kernel is stock from Slackware64-current.

From his log file, he has a 3100.

The kernel module isn't loading for some reason... What's the output of 'modprobe fglrx'? Did you blacklist the radeon kernel module, by the way?

Code:
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.

So what's the output of 'lsmod | grep radeon' and 'dmesg'?

This seems to be the source of the problem:

Code:
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.

You sure your slackware is 64 bits?
If it's 32 bit's you should apply another patch.

We discussed this issue you last week on irc. What should I pay attention to when (re)compiling the 2.6.33 kernel?

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 2.6.33.1)... 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 2.6.32.8 and the driver (10.3) would work nicely.

Well, I am downloading the driver from ubuntu site, let's see what happens.

EDIT:
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.
