Though I am not trying to install Compiz Fusion, I am following this thread as I am stuck with VESA on my IBM T42 running Vector 6.0.
I show the following:
"01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon Mobility M7 LW [Radeon Mobility 7500]"
xorg.conf shows "radeon" as driver.
The bottom part of fglrx-install.log shows
MODPOST 1 modules
LD [M] /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/2.6.x/fglrx.ko
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-18.104.22.168'
build succeeded with return value 0
duplicating results into driver repository...
You must change your working directory to /lib/modules/fglrx
and then call ./make_install.sh in order to install the built module.
- recreating module dependency list
- trying a sample load of the kernel modules
[Error] Kernel Module : Failed to install compiled kernel module - please consult readme."
Actually fglrx goes through the GUI ATI install without showing any errors. However when I continue through the vxconf program, following my selection of the video monitor (1024x786), it errors out "There was an error in your X configuration."
I'm rooting for you, hippyredneck.
