    Exclamation dkms problem with kernel 2.6.30

    I have an hp pavilion dv5 series laptop, with ati hd 3450 graphics, 512m dedicated memory.

    I have a problem with my sound card, that it won't play sound through it's own speakers. So i figured I need to install a new kernel, which I did.

    Inherently I installed the latest graphic drivers(8.62), from the amd website as well as the ones from the standard repo(8.60). I tried to build the drivers for both kernels with :
    Code:
    sudo dkms build -m fglrx -v 8.600 -k 2.6.28-11-generic
    Code:
    sudo dkms install -m fglrx -v 8.600 -k 2.6.28-11-generic
    This works.

    Code:
    sudo dkms build -m fglrx -v 8.62 -k 2.6.28-11-generic
    This gives the following error :
    Code:
    Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...
    
    Building module:
    cleaning build area....
    pushd /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.62/build; sh make.sh --nohints; popd....
    
    Error!  Build of fglrx.ko failed for: 2.6.28-11-generic (x86_64)
    Consult the make.log in the build directory
    /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.62/build/ for more information.
    Now, it gets weirder, when I try to build the dkms for 2.6.30
    Code:
    sudo dkms build -m fglrx -v 8.600 -k 2.6.30-020630-generic
    output:
    Code:
    Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...
    
    Building module:
    cleaning build area....
    pushd /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.600/build; sh make.sh --nohints --uname_r=2.6.30-020630-generic; popd....
    
    Error!  Build of fglrx.ko failed for: 2.6.30-020630-generic (x86_64)
    Consult the make.log in the build directory
    /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.600/build/ for more information.
    and for 6.2
    Code:
    sudo dkms build -m fglrx -v 8.62 -k 2.6.30-020630-generic
    output is :
    Code:
    Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...
    
    Building module:
    cleaning build area....
    pushd /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.62/build; sh make.sh --nohints; popd....
    
    Error!  Build of fglrx.ko failed for: 2.6.30-020630-generic (x86_64)
    Consult the make.log in the build directory
    /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.62/build/ for more information.
    Help in any form will be more than appreciated.

    P.S. : I use KDE and I need 3d effects. System-settings cannot enable the 3d effects under the 2.6.30 kernel.

    *bump*
    I am having the same problem:
    Code:
    sudo dkms build --config /boot/config-2.6.31.6-mycomputer-2 -m fglrx -v 8.593
    
    Kernel preparation unnecessary for this kernel.  Skipping...
    
    Building module:
    cleaning build area....
    pushd /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.593/build; sh make.sh --nohints --uname_r=2.6.31.6-mycomputer-2; popd....
    
    Error!  Build of fglrx.ko failed for: 2.6.31.6-mycomputer-2 (x86_64)
    Consult the make.log in the build directory
    /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/8.593/build/ for more information.
    make.log is totally useless.
    Any progress with this? Solutions?
    Hmm, just re-read your post. Looks like there's a newer fglrx than I got last night!
    Cheers,
    Alexis
