You must install your distribution's kernel source files to run the fglrx driver. I suggest you read the driver documentation.
Comment 2 shebeler 2011-01-05 15:52:13 CST
Ok you're right! i read the same in the documentation but I can't understand what was mean by "installing kernel source"
Comment 3 shebeler 2011-01-07 13:20:14 CST
Ok  I had installed the kernel source but the Error ocured again! 

" Failed to Compile Kernel-module" 

can I Compile the Kernel-module manually?

If you're attempting to use driver "9.3" then you should download the latest driver "10.12" and try again.

:D I had tried this already but this driver recommand that , he don't support my Ati mobility X700 Radeon chip anymore. So I was advised to use still this driver.

But when you say this driver was built for older Kernels i have to look after annother way of solution.
Comment 6 Michael Cronenworth 2011-01-07 17:20:59 CST
AMD doesn't support that chip any more, so yes, you are on your own.

OK I had install OpenSuse 11.2 and I was surprised! 

The installation was succesfull! At the moment I only have to configure fontconfig and xorg config to use the fglrx module.

But thanks for your interest in my Problem.
