fedora c2 can't ati drivers?
I am trying to install the catalyst drivers. I understand I need to build the drivers from the source.
Logged in as root
# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
bash: ./ Permission denied
I checked the ownership and root owns the files
I have been stopped cold, yet again...
Can anyone help?

did you make it runnable? with

chmod u+x

then try to run it with


did it work?

yes that fixed the run issue
Now I have a kernel compatability error and will have to do some more searching.

heh...from one problem to another. :) but good you got rid of the first one..

seesm to be at least a couple of similar threads on ATI

For the compatibility its most likely that you haven't got the kernel sourcecode installed (the source not the kernel)

Yum install kernel-sourcecode

Got the driver running for ATI a couple of days ago - glxgears (though no great benchmark) shows 3000+ frames per second, was 40 - 50 before!!
