Ati and Kernel source problems.


Tried to update my old Ati 8.16.6 driver with the new
version 8.21.7

I have completely removed the old one.
When i try to install the new one i get an error.
My fglrx-install.log looks like this:

Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
[Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched.
[Error] Kernel Module : No kernel module build environment - please consult readme.

But what does it really mean?

When i do the uname -r i get 2.6.12-9-386

What should i do?

Got no kernel source in adept to install. Only some linux image things...

System is

athlon64 3000+
Kubuntu 5.10 32bit

Then a second question.
I hate i have do write "cd .." to change directory.
Is there somehow i can change it so i only have to write "cd.." ?

you need to download the kernel headers. It should be in your mandriva sources.

as for cd ..
google for linux alias
