today i recognized that i can't use 3d accelaration with the ati-drivers-8.8.25-r3. the following entry in syslog tells me why the fglrx driver couldn't be loaded correctly:
fglrx: Unknown symbol remap_pfn_range
after some investigation it seams that the fglrx-2.6-pagetable.patch does not work with 184.108.40.206. looking in the patch there are many #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < foo ... statements. but non around the remap_pfn_range commands. the patch should be dropped for kernels which don't provide the remap_pfn_range functions. alternativly the patch could be improved to use more #if statements...
I'm tempted to just enforce a minimum kernel version, btw the kernel you are using has security issues.
I'll try to add the required ifdefs during the weekend or let Dylan try to fix the patch himself (I assume you can test the patch, isn't it?)
which 220.127.116.11 < kernel < 18.104.22.168-rc4 doesn't have known security issues as well =? btw i also tried 22.214.171.124-rc4 and ati-drivers build also failed...
perhaps it's sufficient enough if you just change the ebuild to einfo "you need at least kernel x.y.z" and abort the emerge.
The target kernel version is .9 .10, at least I tested those.
I don't have the time to fix the .11 compatibility in the next 2 weeks due exams.
I'm seeing this problem on gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.9-r14 under amd64. What is the fix supposed to be?
Ahhh, looks like my problem is comment 6 from bug 80410.
linux 2.6.11 support in the latest ati-drivers, bug resolved
