ATI Proprietary driver with lfs
Okay, got x and gnome installed... and I'm trying to install the proprietary driver from ati. I downloaded the .run file from ati, and the installer has an error loading the kernel module.

Here is the output from the installer

[Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.

[Message] Kernel Module : Found kernel module build environment, generating kernel module now.

Any help anyone could give would be appreciated.
