Trouble installing ATI driver on Linux - Error inserting fglrx
I've seen that this might be a common problem, but so far I not found an exact soultion description. I'm currently running Red Hat Enerprise Linux 5 on a desktop station. I'm about to install an ATI FirePro 2460 graphical board. I have downloaded the latest driver from ATI and during installation I have encoutred the following problems:
fglrx-install.log: You must change your working directory to /lib/modules/fglrx and then call ./make_install.sh in order to install the built module. - recreating module dependency list - trying a sample load of the kernel modules failed. [Error] Kernel Module : Failed to install compiled kernel module - please consult readme. [Message] Kernel Module : update initramfs not required
Any ideas to where the "readme" should be located?
When manually executing make_install.sh the following error message was encountred:
[root@lnx673 fglrx]# ./make_install.sh - recreating module dependency list - trying a sample load of the kernel modules FATAL: Error inserting fglrx (/lib/modules/2.6.18-128.el5/kernel/drivers/char/drm/fglrx.ko): No such device failed.
I have not yet installed the board - might that solve the problems?
