I was running CentOS 6.2 just fine on my old HP dv5117 laptop, and the graphics looked good. But now on F17 everything looks off, the screen resolution is bad (I tried changing it), and I'm not sure what to try next. Do I need some kind of drivers?
Doing a "lspci | grep VGA" I get "VGA Compatible Controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon XPRESS 200M 5955 (PCIE)". Is there any other information I could provide about my video card that might help determine what I should do?
When I look at one of the detail screens it says my graphics is "Gallium 0.4 on ATI RS480".
(Also, I'm not sure how the installation even worked, because I accidentally used a 64bit DVD and my old laptop is only 32bit, but the whole installation worked fine. That's surprising to me, I thought that wasn't possible.)
Thanks for any help you can provide.

As an update, I tried installing the following Catalyst driver from the AMD website but got errors during installation. http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownloa...5&lang=English
