8.40.4

Symptom

Kernel 2.6.21 (including) and up: the kernel module fglrx.ko will not be built ... and the ATI installer wont tell you, it has not.

Reason

ATI kernel module has non-GPL License. Kernel build system has restricted the usage of some functions to GPL-only modules. So the kernel module won't be compile.

Solution

a) Go kick ATI to buld a GPL compatible kernel module.

b) Modify the MODULE_LICENSE String in the kernel module to "GPL"


Yours,

Dr. Nikolaus Klepp
