FEDORA 18 BETA

FGLRX driver from RPM Fusion

Ok people iv manage to get work ===but this is not easy so unless you know what your doing wait for the Official Release===

  • first off update your system and kernel
 su
 yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc
  • 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.xx

and 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

  • once this mess is over add ==RPM FUSION==
 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-branched.noarch.rpm'
  • Now ==THE DRIVER==
 su
 yum install akmod-catalyst

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 in terminal and let it ryde!
new-kernel-pkg --kernel-args=nomodeset --mkinitrd --dracut --update $(rpm -q --queryformat="%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n" kernel | tail -n 1)
  • reboot




ps: ty "other friendly guy" who's always fixing & correcting my mistake lol appreciate
