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
+
