I'm trying to install the latest ATI drivers on Mandrake 10.1, and having some problems. I have a Radeon 9600XT, and using the ATI drivers for Xfree86 version 4.3.0. I tried following these directions here, that I found by searching on google:

Quote:
here is how i installed mine :

first enter as root

su
<your password>

1.Force install Newest ATI drivers from ati.com

rpm -i --force RPMNAME.rpm

2. Ran ./make.sh under build_mod directory

cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
sh make.sh

3. Ran ./make_install.sh under fglrx directory

cd /lib/modules/fglrx
sh make_install.sh

4. Run fglrxconfig : Options that I selected are below.

Hope this helps.!
Thank you user - xodustrance -


I got down to about step three but keep getting the same error, so I copied and pasted my console text from what I tried. Hope someone can help me from this, because I'm totally confused now.

You'll probably have to install a package called something like kernel-headers, so that the modules have something to build against.

Could you explain that a little more, I'm new to linux :( I did an rpmi update, or atleast I think I did, and it said that I didn't need any updates.

I can't really remember how Mandrake package management works, but there should be somewhere (in the Mandrake Control Panel, maybe?) that allows you to install new programmes. In that, you'll probably find a way to list all the available packages, or maybe search for new ones. What you want are the kernel-sources with the version number that matches your current kernel (uname -r should be able to tell you what that is).

Good luck!

mandrake 10.1 doesn't use xfree you need to get the rpm for xorg 6.7 :)

Download the latest Proprietry driver from the ATI site.
Here is a link https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/ ... .8-x86.run

Step 1:
Ensure you have installed the kernel source installed which should be on your installation cd/dvd.
If not then the first step is obviously to proceed to install them (otherwise you have a hope in Hades to install them :twisted: !)

Step 2:
Open a console and navigate to the folder containing the *.run file. Login as a super-user and then type "sh ati-driver-installer-8.24.8-x86.run --get-supported" (without quotes) this should give you a list of the platforms the driver package is built for. I believe that Mandriva 2006 should be in the list. Now type "sh ati-driver-installer-8.24.8-x86.run --build-pkg Mandriva 2006" (again without quotes). This should give you the base modules in rpm form, not to mention the dkms modules as well.

Step 3:
Type "init 3" then hit enter. This will bring you back to a login prompt which you type root and your admin password. Then type "/home/(the user folder)/(download folder)/" Then all you have to do is then type "rpm -Uvh *.rpm" This will proceed to install & update the video driver for your particular card.

Step 4:
I admit it is not really necessary to reboot however I have found that dkms will load more easily after it.
