I've been trying to build and install the ATI open source drivers couple of times now, but with no success. The building, though, works fine, AFAIK, but using the compiled things is a problem.
The problem seems to be that the Xorg does not find Radeon module, even though "modprobe radeon" gives me this:
Why does it then say "module radon can not be found" when I try to start X?

vermagic: 2.6.20-1.2948.fc6 SMP mod_unload 686 4KSTACKS
parm: no_wb:Disable AGP writeback for scratch registers
So, I've compiled both the DRM and Mesa, copied the *_dri.so to /usr/lib/dri, lib*.so to /usr/lib and the drm *.ko files to /lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2948.fc6/kernel/drivers/char/drm/
About the system I have:
-ATI Radeon 9200SE
-Fedora Core 6
-driver sources from the git trunk
Can some one give me more info how to start to approach this issue? What other info you would need to figure this one out?
And is there any guide out there how to install the open source drivers in FC6? I haven't been able to find one.
