FEDORA 18 BETA

FGLRX driver from RPM Fusion AND ONLY WORK WITH KDE VERSION

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 install gcc
 su
 yum install gcc
  • update your system
  • then install kernel-devel to match your kernel (after system update for now you wont find kernel-devel in yum)

so get it from here http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/

  • here are kernel-devel-3.6.11-3

ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/linux/updates/testing/18/x86_64/kernel-devel-3.6.11-3.fc18.x86_64.rpm

ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/linux/updates/testing/18/i386/kernel-devel-3.6.11-3.fc18.i686.rpm


  • 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 REPO==
 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)
aticonfig --initial -f
  • reboot

Good luck and remember,FC18 is nice but wait for the official release
