Add me to the list of people who are having this problem.
FC 6 (32 bit) installed from the release version DVD
Trying to install the ATI driver using the script.
Errors out with this error:
RPM build errors:
File not found: /tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.29.6-1-5401-root/tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.29.6-1.fc6-root-root/usr/bin/fireglcontrolpanel
I have the kernel headers installed, QT, QT-Devel. Someone here mentioned qt-tools but yum says there's no such package (as another poster mentioned.)
I've also tried clearing my tmp directory with no luck.
I am also a fan of GNOME and am strongly biased towards it. Anyway i tried a different solution and have installed the ati drivers from the livna repository using yumex.
The only changes i had to make is to disable the composite extension. But this has caused another problem. Now i can't get compiz to work.
Well i'll keep looking for a solution to this problem too. Please help me out if you can.
I have just had a closer look at my Card and it seems that it is not even supported by the Driver (I have a 7500 or some call it r200) Is this the case?
Any way the driver should still compile should it not? Or might this be the cause for the error?
Any way this bolg and forum have also helped me a lot with compiling the free driver (radeon.ko) Magor help was the blog entry about the config.h that is missing from newer kernel headers and how to work around it.
Thanks a million. A real life saver. Keep up the great work!
The Radeon 7500 is no longer supported. The R100/200 series cards are no longer in the main ATI fglrx branch. However, you can use the open-source Mesa DRI drivers, which work quite well and support desktop eye-candy but the performance is slower than the official drivers.
For older cards the driver should still build but the module won't load.
For others having the fireglcontrolpanel problem, you're best off waiting for the next ATI driver release... If the problems still persist, then I will write a patch to remove the need to build fireglcontrolpanel.
