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
