BTW:  If you choose the previous kernel entry, build the driver you will see that it built fine.  The issue is that some functions were removed/renamed in the latest kernel update that the driver uses.

----- Original Message -----
| Upgraded the kernel to the latest, then tried to rebuild the
| proprietary
| Catalyst driver for a Radeon HD 4550 on a Dell Optiplex 980.
| The install dies, with a c error. Anyone else out there succeed in
| building one on the 2.6.18-194.17.1.el5-x86_64 kernel? I went to the
| website, and the "installation instructions" include that it needs a)
| 32
| bit software (which? dunno) and b) a couple of Xfree86 packages (huh?
| why?
| dunno, probably they haven't updated this page in years).
| Btw, it's fine for single head, but a relatively ordinary dual-head
| setup,
| with what Nvidia calls "individual desktops" ("spanning" seems to mean
| the
| same thing on both monitors). The xorg driver seems to work for single
| head, but no joy with dual head.
| For that matter, anyone have any contacts? I'm still mousing around
| the
| ATI website trying to find an appropriate contact.
