Check for instructions (and a patch) on www.rage3d.com, in the Linux
forum. I got 3.2.8 to compile with those instructions. Initially, I
had errors when starting kdm (and many other apps) that caused X to
exit; the logs showed entries like "Can't register
SecondaryColorxxxEXT." Fixed by removing /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so,
which was not provided by the ATI drivers; libGL.so.1 was.
Also, you must be actively running the desired kernel to compile the
module using ATI's script. Run the installation from a text-mode
window with the modules radeon and radeonfb not loaded.
