    Default x2300 ati problem

    I try to install amd ati driver from the package downloaded at ati.amd.com (*.run format), but get the following error:

    doing Makefile based build for kernel 2.6.x and higher
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.25.5-1.1-default/build SUBDIRS=/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.5-1.1-obj/x86_64/default'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.25.5-1.1-obj/x86_64/default'
    make: *** [kmod_build] Error 2
    build failed with return value 2

    What might cause this error?

    Env I have is
    hardware: hp6910p
    graphic card: x2300
    distribution:suse 11.0 (64bits)
    kernel :2.6.25.5-1.1-default
    kernel header: linux-kernel-headers-2.6.25-8.1 (I have no choice because in the yast package it only lists 8.1. So i edit /src/include/linux/version.h to cheat the script that the version is 2.6.25.5-1.1-default)
    The version of ati driver include 8.7 and 8.4; none of them build correctly and both of them throw the same error.

    Thanks in advice,

    Default Re: x2300 ati problem

    did you configure it?
    ./configure

    But the most simple thing to install your ati driver (after a lot of exp.) is to go to: ATI - openSUSE and do the easy way click on the 1click1install, and if its all ok, AFTER a reboot!!! your videodriver should work. to check if its really working type in the command line: glxgears

    There is no configure file inside /lib/modules/fglrx folder, which is the folder generated by ATI package I guess. But the url provided - ATI - openSUSE does work perfectly. Thank you very much.
    By the way, to load the module fglrx next time when booting the system again. Open Yast->System->/etc/sysconfig Editor
    navigate System->kernel, on the right panel enter 'fglrx' (without quote). Then click finish.
