Default Kernel 2.6.10 and ATi-drivers

I updated my kernel from 2.6.9 to 2.6.10, and when I tried to install the ATi-drivers with:

cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
sh make.sh
cd ..
sh make_install.sh

I am getting warnings and stuff in the "sh make.sh" command, and "sh make_install.sh" fails. It works perfectly in kernel 2.6.9.

So I am wondering if anybody has gotten the ATi-drivers to work with kernel 2.6.10?

1. Download the drivers.

2. Change into the right directory:
cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod

3. Get a driver patch:
wget http://www.pissflitsche.net/scripts/agpgart_be.patch

4. Install the patch:
patch -p0 < agpgart_be.patch

5) Install the fglrx driver:
sh ./make.sh
cd ..
sh ./make_install.sh

I'm pretty sure everyone's going to get the same errors..

A bunch of warnings when compilling...then the pci_find error when trying to insert the module.

They trimed up a bit the kernel source and in doing that, they changed a bit (AFAIK) the location of the DRM code. So it is to be expected.

Smaller and better patch, mine : http://membres.lycos.fr/lachienne51/...gart_be.c.diff

Once your fglrx source is patched, you can build it will all kernel sources ( 2.6.10 and older, whereas the pissflitsche.net patch break compability with older kernels )

Interesting to note, from the Gentoo portage changelog:

+files/8.08-kernel-2.6.10.patch:
Adding the official patch
If you're feeling sprightly you can track it down on a gentoo mirror....or just wait for tomorrow.

Matthew posted the 8.08-2.6.10 patch to these forums last week or so. Here is the link: http://rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33798874 I assume this is the same patch that the Gentoo dev commited.

He also said that it should apply to earlier fglrx drivers as well, but might need some fudging to apply cleanly.

Please note that the patch posted from my team is the only complete one that I have found. If there is no pci_dev_put on the patch, it is incomplete.

Regards,

Matthew

I just verified that the current patch in the gentoo repository is indeed the one Matthew posted earlier, which does include the pci_dev_put() calls. So Gentoo'ers shouldn't have to worry about 2.6.10 kernels and the (soon to be released 8.08) drivers. I hope the other distro maintainers will be applying the correct patch(s) as well...
