ATI fglrx driver & SUSE 10.0 RC1


I tried to install the latest fglrx driver. First I tried to install rpm package with " rpm -Uhv XXXrpm", but no success. I get the following message:

linux:/home/bgorjup/Moji Prenosi # rpm -Uhv fglrx*.rpm
Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
1:fglrx64_6_8_0 ########################################### [100%]

Error! Build of fglrx.ko failed for: 2.6.13-9-default (x86_64)
Consult the make.log in the build directory
/var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.16.20/build/ for more information.

Error! Invalid number of parameters passed.
Usage: remove -m <module> -v <module-version> --all
or: remove -m <module> -v <module-version> -k <kernel-version>
DKMS part of installation failed. Please refer to /usr/share/fglrx/fglrx-install.log for details

Next I go and try with apt-get install. I get the following :

linux:/home/bgorjup/Moji Prenosi # apt-get install fglrx
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Package fglrx has no available version, but exists in the database.
This typically means that the package was mentioned in a dependency and
never uploaded, has been obsoleted or is not available with the contents
of sources.list
E: Package fglrx has no installation candidate

I could install fglrx under SUSE 9.3.

May be it will be better in final version of SUSE 10. Or is there somebody who already solved the problem of installing ATI drivers on SUSE 10.?

You didn't mention that you were running on an AMD 64 system. You know that the rpm you tried to install was for a 64 bit system, right?
