    Hi all,

    I'm pretty new to linux, and installed Debian Sarge today.

    Now i wanted to install the ATI drivers, but im running into some errors which i dont understand.

    I tried installing according the guide on the wiki, here is were it go's wrong;

    Compile the kernel driver

    sudo module-assistant prepare
    sudo module-assistant update
    sudo module-assistant a-i fglrx At the last step its going to open a new window, with the installer and such. Half way the proccess i run into this error;
    Build of the package fglrx-kernel-src failed! How do you wish to proceed?
    VIEW Examine the build log file


    When i choose this option, it shows me what exactly gone wrong;

    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.8-11-amd64-k8'
    CC [M] /usr/src/modules/fglrx/firegl_public.o
    cc1: error: code model `kernel' not supported in the 32 bit mode
    make[2]: *** [/usr/src/modules/fglrx/firegl_public.o] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [_module_/usr/src/modules/fglrx] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.8-11-amd64-k8'
    make: *** [build] Error 2

    Any suggestions on what i should do? I tried to google for it, but i cannot seem to find any solution.
