I am using the ATI binary only drivers. They require a kernel extension
to be built to run them. If you are running a RPM based system, it did
the compiling of the module as part of the installation. I converted
the RPM to a DEB and am having problems compiling the extension. It
complains that my kernel source code (2.4.25) is different from the
kernel I am running (2.4.25-1-386) -- so I am currently working on
recompiling my kernel to ensure the source and the running kernel are
indeed the same.
