Fedora 17 Installation Guide
12.4 Drivers fail due to not supporting the version of Xorg released with Fedora 17 - buy nvidia, I wish I had. I've tried using my 6870 with fedora 16 and 17 and have never been able to get the official driver to work. At the moment after installing in fedora 17 I get a segmentation fault. Why aren't later versions of Xorg supported? why isn't amds linux support as good as nvidias?
