== Installing on Older Cards (HD4xxx and below) (12.6 Legacy) ==
+
 
+
AMD has released 12.6 for legacy cards, so you no longer have to downgrade X. This driver is at [http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/catalyst126legacyproducts.aspx amd.com]. Just use the instructions above, but with this file instead. Also, you'll have a goofy watermark in the bottom right of your screen that says "Testing". You can get rid of this by changing <code>/etc/ati/signature</code> to

== Installing on Older Cards (HD4xxx and below) (12.4) ==
+
 
+
If you have an HD4xxx series card, [http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx Catalyst] 12.4 is the newest stable driver to support it (as of June 4, 2012). This won't work with X version 1.12 (the one packaged with Fedora 17). To downgrade to X version 1.11, use the following commands (as root). <br>
+
<em>Note: I'm assuming x86_64</em><br>
+
<b>IMPORTANT:</b> I'd highly recommend going down to runlevel 3 first. You can do this using the following command in one of the text consoles (<CTRL> + <ALT> + <Fx> where x is 1-9, just try them until you get to a console)
+
<pre>systemctl isolate runlevel3.target</pre>
+
Commands for downgrading X:
+
<pre>yum erase xorg-x11-drv-intel</pre>
+
<pre>yum --releasever=16 install libxcb* xcb-util startup-notification*</pre>
+
<pre>yum --releasever=16 downgrade *xcb* xorg*</pre>
+
You may also need libxcb.i686 from the Fedora 16 release. The intel driver has additional dependencies, and those with AMD/ATi cards don't need it anyway.
+
To solve the issues with the new kernel source, use the steps in <ul><li>[[Fedora 16 Installation Guide]]</li></ul>
+
<b>UPDATE</b><br>
+
3.4.0 has been pushed as the most recent kernel update. This will require recompiling the drivers in addition to commenting the two lines out of <code>uaccess_64.h</code>. Make sure you've rebooted into the new kernel before compiling the driver. You'll need to run the installer first. It will fail, but it copies everything but the kernel modules. To compile those, go to the directory where the <code>amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run</code> file is and type:
+
<pre>./amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64.run --extract fglrx</pre>
+
You will then need to edit <code>./fglrx/common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/kcl_ioctl.c</code> and add the line <pre>DEFINE_PER_CPU(unsigned long, old_rsp);</pre> on line <code>220</code> directly under the end of the multi-line comment. You also need to edit line <code>4157</code> of <code>./fglrx/common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/firegl_public.c</code> to be <pre>for_each_possible_cpu(p)</pre>.
+
After this, execute <pre>cd ./fglrx/common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
+
./make.sh</pre> as root. If you get an error about no make target for <code>libfglrx_ip.a</code>, then copy the one from <code>./fglrx/arch/x86_64/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod</code> to <code>./fglrx/common/lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/</code> and try again.
+
Finally, run <pre>cd ../
+
./make_install.sh</pre> as root then <pre>reboot</pre> to check your results, which I do by seeing if this command correctly outputs a temperature.
+
<pre>aticonfig --odgt</pre>

Note: 12.9 BETA minimum !!!For kernel 3.4.* and up

This section applies directly to users using the Official amd-driver-installer package downloaded from amd.com

Installation Prep for Amd-Driver-Installer

The script from AMD builds the kernel module and a set of modules for XOrg. The Official AMD installer requires some development packages to be installed:

su -
yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc gcc-c++


Download driver

Download the driver for your particular card from http://support.amd.com/


  wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/amd-14-9-linux-x86.x86_64.zip
  unzip amd-14-9-linux-x86.x86_64.zip

Install driver

Run the file as root in the sh shell.

  su
  sh amd-driver-installer-14-9-linux-x86.x86_64.run


Select the default install, do not generate distribution packages.

Click "check log" when install finish

GENERATE DEFAULT CONFIG

  su
  sh aticonfig --initial


REBOOT

To Uninstall

Open terminal,SU to get root,type:

  sh /usr/share/ati/amd-uninstall.sh


Video playback

Add rpm-fusion repositories (free and non-free) via firefox

   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm
   http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm
   open with Archive manager and install,this will provide extra video-codec like H-264,ac3,xvid,mp4.... 

Good luck,
