    Hi Godfrey. Yes, i did compile the kernel myself. I did this after many failed attempted with the kernel that was shipped with distro and the source from apt repository.
    Error is same in both cases, however.

    How about uninstalling package linux-source-2.6.38 purely,clearing the directory /usr/src/ and retrying another time?

    Default 回复: Re: 回复: Re: ATI Drivers

    I see that your last command is "dpkg -i *.deb" and then you get the Error.
    So how do you get those .deb files especially fglrx_8.861-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb ?
    Do you have the .run file ?
    The file fglrx_8.861-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb should be generated from the .run file if you build the fglrx module successfully,shouldn't it?

    Default Re: ATI Drivers

    Ok, I was having this issue too and I just fixed it. I was using this thread as my primary source, so hopefully this will help:

    1. clean install

    2. boot into recovery mode, drop into root shell with networking, and startx (don't forget the first "rm .kde/cache*/*kcache")

    3. prepare-kernel-sources ; cd /usr/src/linux ; cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/

    4. download the ati driver (after doing this a million times, I already had it on my home partition)

    5. run the installer from dolphin (this gives you the gui)

    **IMPORTANT**
    6. aticonfig --initial (if you're using hdmi, skiping this step can result in your monitor being passed some crazy resolution not in your edid. the desktop will boot, and you'll hear the startup music, but "no signal" will be all you'll see)

    Desktop effects are now working for me after two weeks of this. Bear in mind that I'm taking pwb, so figuring this out has really kicked my a55. Thanks to everyone in this thread, I finally got me fancy cube!

    For all of you people who having troubles installing the driver, this might be of help? Purakush

    I have spent a few hours hunting down the info on this and other forums, so hope it helps you as it did for me.

    This works great, thanks. The update for kernel image 2.6.39.4 also broke the ati driver, this process fixed it too.

    THANKS A LOT MAN!! That saved me, messed up my ati driver installation while doing some customizations and was having DKMS failed on installation through .run file, but you solution worked like charm
