DKMS Problem with

Hi everyone,

I recently recompiled the kernel. However, when it came to installing the dkms module for my graphics card (ati) I get the following errors:
Error! Could not locate fglrx.ko.gz for module ati in the DKMS tree.
>>> You must run a dkms build for kernel (i586) first.
I've never had this problem with any other custom kernel. Firstly what is a DKMS build and why is it not included? Is this error due to an oversight when compiling or something different? Thanks in advance for any help. I really need to update the kernel, as my laptop has thermal problems and the newer kernel seems to have fixed this.

Never used it. Know nothing about it. But, a websearch gets this:, which seems to explain DKMS. I suspect that you have a Mandriva related issue. I've never seen anything like that in Debian. There are also hits for searching "fglrx.ko.gz DKMS" on this site.
