Can't Install ATI Drivers in Mandrake 10
 
I tried to install the driver for my Radeon X800 Pro in Mandrake 10 but got this error:
Installation failed:
file /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so.1.2 from install of fglrx-4.1.0-3.11.1 conflicts with file from package libxfree86-4.3-30mdk

you may have to FORCE the install.

rpm -Uvh --force filename.rpm

Hi there!

If got exact the same problem on Mandrake 10 (and a 9600pro).
If just try to install the driver, I get the same error as svoltmer. so I tried to force the install.
Then I get this in bash:
---
rpm -Uvh --force fglrx-4.3.0-3.11.1.i386.rpm

Tailored kernel module for fglrx not present in your system.

Afterwards go to /lib/modules/fglrx and run './make_install.sh'

(see readme.txt for more details.)

As of now you can still run your XServer in 2D, but hardware acclerated

Ok so I tried to do waht it says, but if I run ./make.sh in that folder I just get this:
bash: ./make.sh: Permission denied

I'm logged into bash as root

What could I do now?

Thanks a lot,

TB2

*edit:
The error was this one, described at ATI: http://www.ati.com/support/infobase/4475.html
So I did what they say there, but instead of giving me something like
"linux -> kernel-source-x.x.x"
after giving this command
"[root@localhost src]# ln -s kernel-source-2.6.3 linux",
bash just gives me this if I check with "ls -1" again:
[root@localhost src]# ls -1
ATI/
linux@
nvidia/
RPM/

Before I tried to add something it was:

[root@localhost src]# ls -1
ATI/
nvidia/
RPM/

befor doing ./make.sh you need to do
chmod 777 make.sh

i have the same problem with this driver, i wish it will work with you

Figured I'd use this thread. the newest released driver. 4.3.0-3.12.0

I keep getting an error that module fglrx is in use, the drivers install, but when running glxgears, I go from
13241 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2648.200 FPS
16420 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3284.000 FPS
16608 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3321.600 FPS
16579 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3315.800 FPS
16572 frames in 5.0 seconds = 3314.400 FPS



to less than 300.

what am I doing wrong, I've even tried to uninstall the old driver(3.11.1) and install the new ones. I'm running the 2.6.3-16MDK kernel and Xfree86 version 4.3.0.1 on Mandrake 10 and a Radeon 9800XT 256MB.
