Hello,

I just join this forum which is very cool and helfull. Thanks to everyone for this.
However, i just updrage for FC5 to FC6 on my laptop (Dell Latitude D610) with ATI Radeon X300 and i have some trouble making ATI driver works.

I try both 8.30.3 and 8.29.6 without any success => still have a fireglcontrolpanel error.

Here is the (part1) ouput of:
# ./ati-driver-installer-8.30.3.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6
Creating directory fglrx-install
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
