ATI Driver for FC3 x86_64

i have a Radeon 8500 LE on a FC3 x86_64 / x.org system.

every time i try to install via rpm, i get error messages.

here's the /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/make.log

mind these warnings

try these (with livna repository) as root

1) yum install ati-fglrx ati-fglrx-devel kernel-module-fglrx-$(uname -r)

2) yum install ati-fglrx kernel-module-fglrx* (you might have errors with this one - don't worry and go to step 3)

3) yum install compat-libstdc++

4) fglrxconfig

that worked for me (9700)

good luck!

Hi lokeey, if im not wrong all the latest kernels can be found at http://www.kernel.org/

Of course these kernels dont come as rpms. You will have to manually install them.

Otherwise you can wait for a few more weeks to get them through yum updates, installed automatically.

If thereisnt any specific reason to run the latest kernel, i would recommend you to wait.

Well, after i posted my message, i did a yum update and guess what????

The new kernel is there for update.

If you have set up your yum.conf according to fedorafaq.org then just type, yum update and you will get it

The new one is 2.6.11-1.14 enjoy!!!

I'm pretty sure that if you installed the ATI drivers with 2.6.10-xxx, they will not work with 2.6.11-xxx because they get rebuilt on the fly for your running kernel version, and the modules are installed in the /lib/modules/2.6.10-xxx directory structure. If you boot 2.6.10-xxx, uninstall the ATI drivers, reboot to 2.6.11, and re-install the ATI drivers, they should work unless they just simply aren't compatible. It's a pain to use third-party drivers this way, but that's generally the way it goes.
