Sorry I had to forward this but I was studying for an excel test i need to
take for a support position and I had to mail a spreadsheet to myself.

I did notice that I had Option "CRTOnly" as well. Is this supposed to be

This is where it gets hazy. I don't think I've compiled anything. I tend to
stay with rpms.
Do I only need to follow the make modules section? ...
Perform the following steps:
- get the matching Linux kernel source
- run "make distclean"
- setup that kernel source with the config file matching your kernel
- run "make dep" on the kernel source tree
- go to "/lib/module/fglrx/build_mod" and enter "./make.sh"
- go to "/lib/module/fglrx" and enter "./make_install.sh"
Enter /lib/module/fglrx/build_mod and enter (as root) "./make.sh".
Thus you will create a new customer-specific kernel module.
If the creation fails, look up for the reason in the
shell and in the related logfile "make.log".
Or do I follow these ...
If your kernel was built by your Linux distribution and supplied as binary:
- Get the related source RPM file
- Extract the matching configuration settings contained there.
(RedHat Linux files may reside in the subdir "configs".
SuSE Linux: find the files in the SRPMs.
Latest SuSE versions will present /proc/config.gz for the running kernel.)
- Set up your kernel source with these settings:
(1) copy the config file to /usr/src/linux<your-extension>/.config
(For SuSE config.gz first apply "gunzip config.gz" at a temp
(2) run "make oldconfig" for exact importing
- Run "make dependencies" ("make dep").
Or do I do both?
Sorry it's my first(well hopefully first successful) attempt at doing anything
with my kernel.
