Re: catalyst wont install

nobodie trying to help me....
sorry for bad english.
i was try install headers, install catalyst-hook and nothing, doesnt work for me.
here is what it say:


Building fglrx module for 2.6.33-ARCH kernel ...
+ echo 'Failed!!! Check out log: /var/log/catalyst-install.log'
Failed!!! Check out log: /var/log/catalyst-install.log
----------------------------------------------------------------
Automatic re-compilation is enabled now.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Answer 'Yes' whenever pacman ask you about updating
'kernel26-headers' in first place
----------------------------------------------------------------
Provide headers to your kernel ie:
kernel26-headers if you are using kernel26.
Most of custom kernels provides own headers.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Don't forget to add fglrx into MODULES array of /etc/rc.conf
----------------------------------------------------------------
Add nomodeset to your kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst , ie.:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sda1 ro nomodeset
---------------------------------------- ^^^^^^^^^ -------------
If experiencing problems with building module or using more than
one kernel use catalyst_build_module command as root, more info:
# catalyst_build_module help

please, im new to arch, i like it, trying to learn, and dont want to give up just coz catalyst.
PLEASE!!!

Re: catalyst wont install

open /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and there select an another mirror, 'cause your current mirror is very outdated. e.g. Server = http://mirrors.kernel.org/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch

and then pacman -Syyu

Re: catalyst wont install

what? you're doing it all wrong.

it's says to boot in "init 3" and to run "rm /etc/ati/amdpcsdb". also menu.lst = /boot/grub/menu.lst.

while you are in grub boot menu, select your entry and press "e" and add 3 at the end of kernel line. to boot press "b".

Re: catalyst wont install

also, consider adding nomodeset to kernel line @ menu.lst like this:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/sda1 ro nomodeset

the menu.lst modification is not quite needed 'cause you'll have remove "3" from kernel line after deleting /etc/ati/amdpcsdb, so simply modify the entry from grub boot menu like i said earlier.

Re: catalyst wont install

install catalyst and  lib32-catalyst-utils
configure xorg with "aticonfig --inital" and/or "aticonfig -r"
add nomodeset to kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst
add fglrx to modules array in /etc/rc.conf
