Ok people iv manage to get work su yum check-update yum update*reboot
==but this is not easy so unless you know what your doing wait for the Official Release==*in software manager enable "fedora 18 source\source-update"*first install gccInstall require stuff to get work properly
su
yum install gcc *update your system *in software manager enable "test update for fedora and rpm fusion" *then install kernel-devel to match your kernel (after system update for now you wont find kernel-devel in yum)so get it from here http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/ *here are kernel-devel-3.6.11-3ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/linux/updates/testing/18/x86_64/kernel-devel-3.6.11-3.fc18.x86_64.rpm ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/linux/updates/testing/18/i386/kernel-devel-3.6.11-3.fc18.i686.rpm  *you might run into dependency trouble along the way so if that's the case your best friend is http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/ *the problem will be show as ==example== "glibc xx.xx.xx, require glibc-common xx.xx.xx,installed glibc-common xx.xx.xxand you wont have it in you list so go to http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/ =and find it under fedora 18 testing for i686 or x64= ==JUST CLICK ON IT AND OPEN WITH ARCHIVE INSTALLER==headers wget
*once this mess is over add ==RPM FUSION REPOAdd Rpm Fusion Repo==
su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-branched.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-branched18.noarch.rpm'
*enable test update in software sourcehttp://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-18.noarch.rpm
*Now ==THE DRIVER==*This will provide the latest driver and Control Panel Cat-13.4/13.8
su
yum install akmod-catalyst
*once again you might have to find dependency here http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/once it all ok re-run the previous command and if dependency check-out you will have to
interact by typing Y to install
*If all is good you need to rebuild the kernel "much easy compare to dependency problem lol" type it . (NEED TO BE DONE EACH TIME AKMOD UPDATE HAPPEND FOR BEST RESULT)Type this in the terminal and let it ryde! su
new-kernel-pkg --kernel-args=nomodeset --mkinitrd --dracut --update $(rpm -q --queryformat="%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n" kernel | tail -n 1)
*reboot
