I got an odd problem while installing video card driver ATI Catalyst 8.10 on my Ubuntu 8.10 manually.

I completely followed the way Unofficial ATI Linux Driver Wiki told me.
When I excuted "deb dpkg -i fglrx-amdccle.....deb",
I Got:
"Error! Build of fglrx.ko failed for 2.6.27-7-generic"
"Error! Could not locate fglrx.ko for module fglrx in the DKMS tree"...

How could I fix this problem????

Does anyone know if there are any plans to add DKMS to the Linux kernel?
