FGLRX Install problem


Hello everyone, my first post.

I have searched for a possible solution to my problem, but I have not been able to find one

I have been following the instructions on xoomer.virgilio.it/flavio.stanchina/debian/fglrx-installer but... I have hit a brick wall.

When running the command "fakeroot make-kpkg --append-to-version -flavour --added-modules fglrx-4.3.0-3.7.6 modules_image" I get the follwoing error message:The changelog says we are creating 2.4.25, but I thought the version is 2.4.25-flavour
make: *** [modules_image] Error 1


I am looking for any possible suggestions, if I need to post an additional info let me know.

Thanks
Shawn

You have to have same flavour as you used with your kernel building. If you want to have an other flavour than your previous build, you have to make-kpkg clean the tree and remove+ reopen the modules to their build-locations.

Never heard the -flavour option before I had to look it up here is what the man page for make-kpkg says.

Code:
--flavour foo
              This  option  is now deprecated in favor of --append_to_version.
              Sets the kernel flavour to the argument foo. The flavour is also
              appended  to  the  package  name. You need a patched Makefile to
              make  this  work   properly   (see   /usr/share/doc/kernel-pack-
              age/Flavours.gz).   It  may contain only lowercase alphanumerics
              and the characters - + . (full stop, hyphen, and  plus).  Upper-
              case  letter  are not permitted under the Policy for a new pack-
              age. NOTE: Hyphens are discouraged.  (Look at Chapters 4 of  the
              Policy  manual  for details). Please note that you shall need to
              make-kpkg clean FIRST if you wish to recompile the  kernel-image
              using a flavour.
You most likely want to forget entirely about the -flavour and just use the --append-to-version=1.2.3-1 replacing the 1.2.3-1 with what ever is on the end of the output of uname -r for the kernel you are running eg for my kernel.

Code:
[HappyTux:/home/stephen]# uname -r
2.6.8-rc2-ck6
So if I was using it then it would be --append-to-version=rc2-ck6.

-flavour is actually not an option (as its --flavour counterpart), but a parameter to --append-to-version. So it makes a kernel named 2.4.24-flavor.
