2.6.2 kernel, with ati drivers.

Hey guys, I'm having trouble calling ./make_install on the ati drivers after calling ./ (which runs fine with out errors). The error that results with ./makeinstall outputs this:

fglrx: version magic '2.6.2 preempt 586 gcc-3.3' should be '2.6.2
preempt k7 gcc-3.3'
FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.2/extra/fglrx.ko):
Invalid module format

If anyone has any idea as to why this is happening please let me know

i am not sure if this will help, but if you are just trying to execute commands in a Makefile, then you don't need to type the ./ for make or make install; just type make, make install, etc.

oh, this may help: make sure you are using the same version gcc you used to compile your kernel

thanks for the quck responce but, those are the two commands ihave to call to compile the ati drivers into the kernel.
as far as using the same gcc version, I'm pretty sure i am using the same version, as I have been able to compile the drivers for kernel 2.4.25 sucessfuly using this same setup.
