Fedora 8 Installation Guide
Revision as of 22:56, 1 November 2007 by Riaanvn
- Fedora 8 is included as a generatable package since version 8.42.3 of the AMD Proprietary Linux driver. "sh ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run --listpkg | grep -i fedora" shows "Fedora/F8" in the output.
- Unfortunately the driver kernel module currently fails to compile since Linux kernel version 2.6.23 is not yet supported. The first of the error messages is
/tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.42.3-1-10805-root/tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.42.3-1.f8-root-root/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod /2.6.x/firegl_public.c:365: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type
- Any workarounds or time frames / road maps for inclusion of support of Fedora 8 / Kernel 2.6.23 would be greatly appreciated.
