unable to build rpm packages with 8.33.6
I've been trying to install the ATI drivers and have not gotten very far. I get the following errors. I'm running FC6 with kernel version 2.6.19-1.2895.fc6xen.
Here is part of the output. There was more but I didn't want to paste it all unless it is needed. Thank you in advance for any help.

Are you intentionally using the Xen kernel? Otherwise switch to a normal i686 kernel.
Xen or no Xen

The current firegl_public is known not to work with Xen on Fedora Core 6.
