now try to rebuild the fglrx module (however just to ensure its installed make sure there is a /usr/src/linux directory or maybe a /usr/src/2.4.21 directory or something like that)

well maybe this is the problem that i installed the .rpm from C:\
because i didnt know how to use the command in console to download.
There is still no /usr/scr/linux and the make.sh says it cant find that folder (((
maybe it's better that i format and install linux again whitout the ati drivers yet so i can first do the module stuff
or i can't?

what is the file listing of /usr/src ? you can execute 'rpm -q -l ' on the rpm file to find out what files it installed and where.

perhaps try a different distro (in 2 weeks).

Personally I would recommend Slackware, however I've also heard good things about Debian and Knoppix.

ok i tried installing the .rpm again and got this message:

RPM version 4.04
Copyright (c) 1998-2000 - Red Hat, inc
This program may be freely redistributed under the terms of the GNU GPL

then i did your command...
'rpm -q -l
and it said
package not installed

file listening of /usr/scr

fglrx_panal_source.tgz

fglrx_sample_source.tgz

rpm execute both gets same message as excute the kernel rpm
(make.sh still doesnt work.. message again about incomplete or no files u know)

what now? :/

mausie, get ready I'm about to rant ... this shit is why I (maybe not as strong a word as 'hate' but its definately close) am not crazy about rpms. I don't have any real bad points about rpms to make and usually rpms come in very handy for many but when they go wrong ... well as you've seen over the last week+ they really go wrong.

My solution (and yes, this one will work) is go to www.kernel.org. Download the latest kernel, build it (they are plenty of posts here, lots of documentation at tldp.org, and many people here who can help you with this.) It sounds scary, it's not; its really really not. Install your new kernel and run it.

After this is done you can either build your fglrx module (we can check later to make sure that the rpm installed the files you'll need correctly). And if it didn't install correctly the tools are out there to pick the rpm apart and I can walk you through installing it by hand.

It's time to grab your system by the cojones and tell it to stop trying to mess with you.

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...2.4.22.tar.bz2

here's a link to the latest kernel source. download it, copy the tarball (.tar.bz2) to /usr/src and execute 'tar -xvjf linux-2.4.22.tar.bz2'.

this will create a directory /usr/src/2.4.22 and you can go from there. And again, trust me, its not as scary as it sounds.

I will try to help you, so :

1/ Log in Mandrake as 'root' (I think you can only log in console mode !)
2/ Type : " urpmi kernel-source-2.4.21-0.13mdk "
3/ Insert the CD3 when prompted to do so
4/ View if you've got /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-0.13mdk (I hope so)
5/ If you've got it (I hope so), then type : " ln -sf /usr/src/linux-2.4.21-0.13mdk linux "
6/ Go to the directory containing your ATI drivers and use the script make.sh as follow " ./make.sh "

Hope this will help you !

The file I told you to download is a precompiled kernel headers and the one He told you to download is the source of the linux kernel (to be build manually, difficult for a ).

If you haven't got the CD3 it's normal that no package named kernel-source-2.4.21-0.13mdk was found since it's on it.
