I can see that you're currently using the open source mesa driver.
So you want to start using fglrx instead.
You have the livna repository enabled by the looks of it... good.

Also, what do you get when you do this...
Code:
grep Driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf
You should see fglrx, not ati.

Another point, what 3rd party repos do you have enabled other than livna? I only have the fedora repos and livna and I can't see an ati-x11-drv package.
If you have another repo enabled that provides proprietory drivers (freshrpms for example) get rid of it for now, that will be causing the dependency clash with ati-x11-drv.
Code:
mv /etc/yum.repos.d/nastyrepo.repo /tmp
Forget stating all the required packages, just install one and the others will be installed as dependencies...
Code:
yum remove ati-x11-drv
yum clean all
yum install kmod-fglrx
what happens now?


I can also see you trying to start fglrx with the service command. 'service' is for running init scripts to start & stop processes that are setup to run at boot time.
Kernel modules are loaded and unloaded with the modprobe & rmmod commands. To see what modules you currently have loaded use the lsmod command.
For example, to unload the ati driver and then load the fglrx driver you can do the following.
Code:
init 3
rmmod ati
modprobe fglrx
init 5
...or just reboot.

your output indicates that you are running the fglrx driver from freshrpms and it is installed !!!


Code:
Package ati-x11-drv conflicts with xorg-x11-drv-fglrx.

You need the kernel-devel installed for the driver to work ( if you install a kernel-devel for each kernel you would be able to use the old kernel , it is normal for the old kernel to have black screen )

to check that the kernel-devel is installed try

rpm -q kernel-devel

also check to see what kernels you have and install the matching kernel-devel as the dkms fglrx driver needs it to build the module at boot .

rpm -q kernel


P.S you have taken little notice of what I have said in previous posts and pay no attention to what you doing or you would have that the kmod-fglrx failed to install.

Heh... that explains things, never used freshrpms so wasn't sure.
The only thing really missing from my post then was to incude a 'yum remove ati-x11-drv'.
Added...

The Ati site says I need these?

Minimum System Requirements

Before attempting to install the ATI Proprietary Linux Graphics Driver, the following software must be installed:

* POSIX Shared Memory (/dev/shm) support is required for 3D apps
* glibc version 2.2 or 2.3
* Linux kernel 2.4 or higher
* XOrg 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, 7.0, 7.1, or 7.2; XFree86 version 4.3


do i have them? where do i get these programs? and how do i install them?
