Scientific Linux 5.0

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
