ATI Linux fglrx driver version 8.40.4

Release Date: 8-13-2007


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

Kernel 2.6.22 will compile the module.


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.


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

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