LFS and fglrx


Hey everyone,
I have just successfully installed X.org 6.8.2 on my LFS system. The next thing was to get the graphic card driver for my ATI Radeon 9500 Pro (fglrx) to work. Now I've stumbled across a problem. While attempting to create the kernel module, the installer stops with an error. The log file gives following information:
Code:
[Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
[Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched.
[Message] Kernel Module : Found kernel module build environment, generating kernel module now.
You arent running in a 'login shell'.
Please login directly from a console
or use 'su -l' to get the same result.
[Error] Kernel Module : Failed to compile kernel module - please consult readme.
I am logged in as root. With su -l the error still occurs. I really have no idea what might be causing this, nor have I run across any solution on google.

Any help will be appreciated

I figured it out! My LFS installation was missing the "which" script, which was used by the check in the ATI installer
Sometimes it can be this simple
