ATI Linux fglrx driver version 8.40.4

Release Date: 8-13-2007

Symptom

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.

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 build a GPL compatible kernel module.

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