The ATI driver installer ati-driver-installer-8.36.5-x86.x86_64.run has the ability to build RPMs.
 
 
 
ati-driver-installer-8.36.5-x86.x86_64.run --listpkg
 
 
 
shows the packages it can build.
 
There is no RHEL 5 option yet, but I've read somewhere that RHEL5 is based on FC6.
 
Given that I tried to build
 
 
 
ati-driver-installer-8.36.5-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Fedora/FC6
 
 
 
and it generated the following RPMs:
 
 
 
ATI-fglrx-8.36.5-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm
 
ATI-fglrx-control-center-8.36.5-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm
 
ATI-fglrx-devel-8.36.5-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm
 
ATI-fglrx-IA32-libs-8.36.5-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm
 
fglrx_6_8_0-8.36.5-1.i386.rpm
 
kernel-module-ATI-fglrx-2.6.18-8.1.3.el5-8.36.5-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm
 
 
 
fglrx_6_8_0-8.36.5-1.i386.rpm is for 32-bit.
 
 
 
To install these RPMs run
 
 
 
rpm -Uvh ATI-fglrx* kernel-module-ATI-fglrx-2.6.18-8.1.3.el5-8.36.5-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm
 
 
 
Run
 
 
 
aticonfig --initial
 
 
 
and you could try it with:
 
 
 
startx
 
 
 
or
 
 
 
telinit 5
 
 
 
When you happy with the new driver you need to ensure that you have
 
 
 
id:5:initdefault:
 
 
 
in your /etc/inittab and reboot the box.
 
Please note, that SL5.0 installation did not recognise my card: ATI X1600 [Asus A6000KT laptop] so I had no X running and the default init mode was '''3''' [not '''5''']. YMMV.
 
 
 
I still do not know how to rebuild the kernel module for the different kernels.
 
By default the kernel module is being build for the current kernel [uname -r]
 
Today was the first security kernel upgrade revision  2.6.18-8.1.4.el5.
 
So after new kernel installation I repeated the same procedure and installed new kernel module with
 
 
 
rpm -ivh kernel-module-ATI-fglrx-2.6.18-8.1.4.el5-8.36.5-1.fc6.x86_64.rpm
