Download and install libdrm package from Fedora 9, as described above. You have to prevent yum from updating these packages:
+
 
+
# perl -i -pe "s/(\[.*\])/\1\nexclude=libdrm/"  /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo
+
# perl -i -pe "s/(\[.*\])/\1\nexclude=libdrm/" /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo

Install ati driver from amd's binary package.
+
 
+
Install system-config-display package:
+
 
+
# yum install system-config-display
+
 
+
After the successful install start system-config-display to create an xorg.conf template in /etc/X11.
+
Install ati driver from downloaded binary, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Add these lines:
+
 
+
Section "Extensions"
+
Option "Composite" "Enable"
+
EndSection
+
 
+
 
+
Section "ServerFlags"
+
Option "AIGLX" "on"
+
EndSection
+
 
+
Section "DRI"
+
Mode 0666
+
EndSection
+
 
+
and add to 'Device section':
+
 
+
Option     "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
+
Option     "VideoOverlay" "on"
+

Edit /etc/grub.conf and add 'nopat' to the kernel line, and change the timeout to 10 seconds (timeout=10).
+
 
+
Reboot into single user mode, by pressing 'e' at grub's selection screen, select kernel line, press 'e', add 's' to the end of the line, press enter to finish editing and press 'b' to boot.
+
 
+
Log in as root. Add 'alias radeon off' to /etc/modprobe.conf, and add 'blacklist radeon' to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist. If loaded, remove drm and radeon modules:
+
 
+
# rmmod radeon
+
# rmmod drm
+
 
+
Load flgrx module:
+
 
+
# modprobe fglrx
+
 
+
Back up your current inird image and create a new one:
+
 
+
# mv /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img.backup
+
# mkinitrd /boot/initrd-`uanme -r`.img
+

After rebooting yor machine, fglrx should work. This method worked on a 'HP DC5750 microtower' with integrated Radeon X200.

  • This method will give you automatic updates when they become available from AMD.

Step 1 Install RPMFusion repository information

Step 2 Install the driver

yum method

1. Open a terminal and become root.

$ su -

2. In the terminal, perform the following command:

# yum install akmod-fglrx

3. Enable the driver for use.
