FEDORA 18

FGLRX driver from RPM Fusion

Ok people iv manage to get work


  • first update system
 su
 yum check-update
 yum update
  • reboot
  • in software manager enable "fedora 18 source\source-update"
  • Install require stuff to get work properly
 su
 yum install gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers wget
  • Add Rpm Fusion Repo

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-18.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-18.noarch.rpm

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'
  • enable test update in software source
  • 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!

su

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
