    Default FGLRX kernel module

    has anyone managed to get the fglrx kernel module compiled on a hdd install system with the stock kernel?

    where can i get the source for the kernel that comes with back|track?

    i tried a vanilla kernel source but fglrx complained that it didnt match the one i was running

    On a harddrive install? And when you run fglrxinfo or lsmod it shows that the fglrx module is running?

    Thanks, that helped out a lot.

    Also, I discovered that any changes you make during the live session persist when you do a "real" hdd install.

    So, once I got fglrx running in live mode, I reinstalled to the hard drive and fglrx worked perfectly.

    Trigger911, can you please tell me which driver you used (maybe the link) and how you installed it? Did you install it for a HD installation? Thanks.
