    Default Catalyst 10.6 does not install on OpenSuse 11.3

    Tried to install Catalyst 10.6 on OpenSuse 11.3 RC2. The installation failed. This is what the installer had to say:

    no XFree86 in (/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin)

    Error: ./default_policy.sh does not support version
    default:v2:x86_64:lib::none:2.6.34-12-desktop:; make sure that the version is being
    correctly set by --iscurrentdistro

    Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install.KabnT0

    10-6 only supports up to .33 kernel out of the box. 1 line is missing

    @macunian
    Kano's script supposedly fixes what he's talking about, although it's obviously for debian http://kanotix.com/files/install-fglrx-debian.sh.
    I'll have a look and see if I can adapt that to openSUSE.

    Note to self:
    1. Check out the script first
    2. Then and only then open your trap...

    Erm ok if you're in a hurry, you might as well apply the patch manually:

    erm.... I might have done something wrong here. You add that patch to ati-install.sh don't you?

    You extract the content to a directory first, cd to that directory and apply the patch. Since it's a one-liner, hand editing works too:
    Code:
    sh ati-driver-installer-10-6-x86.x86_64.run --extract fglrx-install/ (or whatever name)
    cd fglrx-install/common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
    kwrite kcl_wait.c
    Look for the " #include <linux/sched.h>" line (it's pretty much at the beginning), add
    Code:
    #include <linux/slab.h>
    beneath it.
    Save, cd back to fglrx-install and launch ati-installer.sh

    That should be it.

    Oh and make sure have all the dependencies installed first:

    Thanks again. Unfortunately, this doesn't work.
