    Amenzix,
    I used the following command to generate package of ati-driver-installer-8.30.3.run, but it didn't work.

    #./ati-driver-installer-8.30.3.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6

    I got this error message.

    Generating package: Fedora/FC6
    Please install an appropriate Linux kernel module build package.
    Probably kernel-devel in this case.
    If you've compiled a custom kernel, make sure /usr/src/linux exists
    and the source tree matches the currently running kernel.
    Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install

    So, I installed the ati driver from linva website by using yum command.

    #yum install kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx

    #rpm -q kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx
    kmod-fglrx-8.31.5-1.2.6.18_1.2849.fc6
    xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-8.31.5-1.lvn6

    But when I started ATI Control Panel, an dialog with error pupped up!

    "Drive does not provide the FirGL X11 extensions! Panel component will operate only partially!"

    OpenGL Vendor was still Mesa!

    # glxinfo | grep "direct rendering"
    Xlib: extension "XFree86-DRI" missing on display ":0.0".
    direct rendering: No

    Shuold I do something special after the installation?

    ## cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "EE"
    (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.

    Foxtseng,
    Could you tell me the steps you have done? I don't understand what you did?

    Thanks!

    Alex,

    Check your libGL.so files.

    find / -name libGL.so.1
    and check what you got. some of them may be symbolic links, just take a close look at the targets of the links, which should be libGL.so.1.2
    At least one of them should be at,
    /usr/lib/ati-fglrx/libGL.so.1.2

    and there should be one at,
    /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.2

    In my case, these two are not the same, the later is by Mesa, and used by the X11, while the former is by ATI but not used.
    So I created a link,

    #ln -s /usr/lib/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/ati-fglrx/libGL.so.1.2
    (of course, first remove the original link...)

    But this is my case, I cannot sure that it will work for your situation.
    Hope it will be helpful.

    And anyone can take a look at my blog, where I recorded the process to install my hardwares with extreme details. But just too much...
