fglrx module loading problem


Greetings!

I made an attempt to load the fglrx module using the ./make.sh method, described inside the fglrx-kernel-src README.debian..

----a) Build with the supplied make.sh script
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
This will build a module that matches the running kernel; you need to have
the correct kernel source and configuration in place.

$ cd /usr/src/modules/fglrx
$ ./make.sh

Provided that the module was compiled without error, become root and
install it:

$ mkdir /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/misc
$ cp fglrx.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/misc/
$ depmod -ae

Now try to load the module by entering the following command as root:

$ modprobe -v fglrx

If everything goes well, modprobe prints the path of the module it loaded.

If modprobe can't load the module, make sure you've installed it correctly
and look at the output of dmesg for any errors. Please include the full
error message from modprobe -v fglrx and the output from dmesg and lsmod if
you choose to contact me at this point!

----

Now well, it was unsuccesfull, when I tried to modprobe.
Here, are my dmesg, lsmod, and modprobe -v fglrx commands and their errors:

Thank you!~

It looks like a version mismatch to me. Somehow it was compiled with different options than the kernel you are actually running.

So, what do you propose?

I got this from a debian user:


"
Your kernel and the fglrx module are built with different versions of
the compiler. See the error message (I added some spaces to line up the
version strings and make the diference more obvious):

fglrx: version magic '2.6.17-1-686 SMP mod_unload 686 REGPARM gcc-4.0'
should be '2.6.17-1-686 SMP mod_unload 686 REGPARM gcc-4.1'
"

What can I do about it?

One, either make it compile it with the same version compiler that the kernel was compiled with (sorry cant remem how to do that) or two, just recompile your kernel, and then recompile the module. I'd go for the latter, especially considering I already know how to do it

If I recompile the kernel. I'll have to build the sound card modules, the PS/2 mouse, and many more things from scratch, right? :/

That should all be in the kernel. Did you not hand build your kernel before? If not that may be the issue. You may not have the right kernel headers installed for your prebuilt kernel.

I used CC='gcc=4.1' before the ./make.sh of the fglrx and I fixed it!
Many many thanks!
