    help!! ati radeon and symlinks

    ATI module generator V 2.0
    ==========================
    initializing...
    Error:
    kernel includes at /usr/src/linux/include do not match current kernel.
    they are versioned as "2.4.27"
    instead of "2.6.9".
    you might need to adjust your symlinks:
    - /usr/include
    - /usr/src/linux

    But I start knoppix with the 2.6.9 kernel option any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance and sorry, newbie

    Looks like you need the 2.6.9 kernel.
    Ok, its not hard.

    First go to /usr/src/ as root.

    Delete the linux "folder" (acually its a shortcut) if its there.

    Go to kernel.org and click F

    The latest stable version of the Linux kernel is: 2.6.9 2004-10-18 22:10 UTC F V VI C Changelog
    Open that up and put its contents into /usr/src note the name of the folder.

    Open up a console and become root and type

    cp -s /usr/src/folder name /usr/src/linux

    (if that doesn't work, reverse the folders, /usr/src/linux /usr/src/folder name)

    now retry the install.

    You need to compile that kernel source first so that kernel header is prepared and can be used by ati.
    If you boot with kernel 2.4 and run that ati installer, I believed you will not have the problem. But since you have change the symlink to kernel 2.6, you need to recreate that symlink and point to kernel 2.4 source.

    Or download the header via apt-get

    I wasn't to sure what header it wanted, thats why I suggested what I did.
