Question fglrx 3.7 drivers conversion

Can someone convert the fglrx-3.7 ATI Radein 9100 drivers from RPM to TGZ for me? I donít know why but when I do rpm2tgz the tgz file size is only 138. It worked for me once and looks like now its not. If someone can convert it for me and post it somewhere or e-mail it to me I would appreciate it.

You can install it as an rpm. Slackware handles rpm's just as well if not better than rpm-based distro's.
rpm -ivh package-name.rpm

Rush_pl, you're probably missing the 'cpio' package. I was too and got the same rpm2tgz results. However, after installing cpio, it did work just fine.
