You were correct John-Paul. I did correct the make.sh script and now
it runs to completion but...
I had to install gcc-3.2.2-5 to get the script to run. It said the
module is being compiled with a gcc2 and the kernel has been compiled
with a gcc3. Tried to install the module but it will not load. When
I run /sbin/modprobe fglrx.o the system returns "Cannot find fglrx.o".
When I run /sbin/insmod fglrx.o I get returned 15 unresolved symbols
and this last line:
"Hint: You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible
license and it has unresolved symbols. Contact the module supplier
for assistance, only they can help you."
Bummer, so close but so far away. I am thinkling of removing the
fglrx module stuff I have and downloading the version from Schneider
in Germany. Or you think I should stick with the ATI driver from ATI
