Error when installing AMD Catalyst 13.4 in Slackware 14.1

First, congrats for Slackware new release.
I succeed upgrading from 14.0 to 14.1.
But I got error when installing AMD Catalyst 13.4.
I was installing from binary with
# sh
I got the driver from
I got this error message:
cc1: some warnings being treated as errors
make[2]: *** [/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x/firegl_public.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x] Error 2

Is anyone have the same problem?

did you keep the old version of the kernel? or did you upgrade all at once?, the driver 13.4 fails with the more recent versions of the kernel, you need to test the last beta (13.11 beta6) instead.

I have experienced the same issue here too. Amd driver 13.4 would not compile module in Slackware64 14.1, however I have tried beta driver and so far so good. I even have tear-less desktop first time in ages! Overall Amd proprietary driver has improved a lot since last time I've used amd hardware.
