those all look like precompiled kernels... perhaps you should check at mandrakelinux.com for the source for your kernel (your current kernel version can be found out by executing uname -a). then you can use the software installer in your startup menu to install the rpm. Mandrakelinux.com will probably have more detailed information on how to install stuff (as I don't use mandrake myself, not for the last 4 years anyway).

hth,

the two distro's I use are slackware 9 and Linux From Scratch (LFS). I wouldn't recommend LFS for a newbie but Slackware is pretty nice.

mausie, via google I found the source rpm for the kernel-2.4.21.0.13mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm (I'm assuming this is the kernel you're using).

it can be downloaded from here:
kernel-2.4.21.0.13mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm

I think you can install it with 'rpm -i kernel-2.4.21 ... .rpm'

let me know if you need help.

to install the rpm 'cd' to the directory containing the downloaded rpm file.

then as root execute 'rpm -i kernel-2.4.21.0.13mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm'.

this should install the rpm (which will put all kinds of source code into /usr/src/).

then after that you should be able to build the fglrx module.

see you tomorrow and g'night.

so then what are the contents of /usr/src?

maussie, if /usr/src is still empty, then I'm sorry I may have sent you to the wrong rpm. try downloading this one (you should be able to do it using wget) and then perform 'rpm -i' on the downloaded file...
