I am getting the following Oops still:
Hmmm... Oopses are a Bad Thing. The most likely cause is trying to load
a module that was built with a different compiler version or
incompatible options wrt. the running kernel, but it looks like you're
building everything yourself so that shouldn't be the case.
Indeed, though I often re-dep and re-image without the make clean/mrproper first,
so I did try rm -rf everything (to be sure), including kernel source and
restarted from tarballs on the last try. I may attempt to build the 2.6
tree on one of my Debian Woody servers, as I have been using my Debian
Sid box to date.
If I understand correctly, you didn't have oopses at first, but I really
can't see what could be wrong here. If you have time to spend on this
issue, I'd suggest to build a 2.4 kernel and see if that works. I did
run fglrx on 2.6 for some time, but not 2.6.5 and anyway I'm currently
using 2.4 because I need to use another driver that doesn't work on 2.6
(the RT2400 driver, in case anyone's curious). I'm much more confident
that 2.4 will work.
I too believe that my issues may be 2.6 related as their have been more
significant changes than the stable 2.4 tree. I plan to retest with
2.4.26 soon though I am pretty busy at the moment. I will keep you
posted on my success/failures.
