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
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.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER

Could you tell me the steps you have done? I don't understand what you did?
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,
and there should be one at,
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...
