    Default Catalyst 8.5 not compiling on Fedora 9

    Hi All,

    I just installed Fedora 9 and went to build the Catalyst 8.5 driver and got the below error.

    sh ati-driver-installer-8-5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Fedora/F9
    Created directory fglrx-install.40l2J7
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.

    Does anyone know what might be causing this issue?

    You can skip the Suspending and resuming if you do
    ./ati-driver-installer-8-5-x86.x86_64.run --extract exp
    do the changes in the spec file and then
    ./ati-installer.sh 8-5 --buildpkg Fedora/F9

    EDIT: Fixed that for F9 and I wanted to add that I only tested it on F8 (works like a charm), but it should work on F9, too.

    Hi Everyone,

    Thank you for your responses. I wanted to install the fglrx 8.5 because in F8, I could only get the power saving for the LCD to work when there was a fglrx driver installed [the driver that came with F8 didn't support power management]. The driver that comes with F9 seems to support power management, so I think I'm going to wait until 8.6 to try this again. Granted the above work arounds would have worked, I just feel that a typical user shouldn't have to do anything to get a driver installed other than run the installer package with the correct parameters. Maybe I'm hoping for to much, especially when the driver has to be installed/compiled in Linux.

    Again, thanks for all the feedback, it is greatly appreciated!

    You can install Catalyst 8.5 in Fedora 9 and all works good I think, You only have to downgrade Xorg to Xorg from Fedora 8 I installed drivers in this steps on my Fedora 9 and all works good:

    *Downgrade Xorg:
    http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...d.php?t=188645

    *Next I installed new kernel 2.6.25.3-18 and reboot of course.
    *Next I installed Catalyst 8.5 in text mode

    Next reboot and We have Catalyst 8.5 and 3d acceleration on Fedora 9 If ATI release drivers compatible with X Server 1.5 we will can very easy upgrade our Xorg via Yum to the latest version I think than it's the best solution for temporary using.
