Hello, I was looking for soniehtmg like this, but I have a question, how can I perform these actions If when I try to do this bash told me:permission denied, even with root or sudoers permissions.can you explain me that, please?
* Supported since [[Catalyst 7.11]], which adds support for kernel 2.6.23.
+
 
+
==Installation Option #1 Freshrpms.net repository==
+
rpm -ihv http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/fedora/linux/8/freshrpms-release/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm
+
yum install -y ati-x11-drv
+
and restart your system.
+
 
+
==Installation Option #2 Livna repository==
+
rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-8.rpm
+
* [http://www.fedorafaq.org/#radeon These instructions] on the Unoffical Fedora FAQ work. (In order not to duplicate the the instructions, we provide the link rather than the instructions themselves).
+
 
+
==Installation Option #3 via ATI Installer==
+
You can get the latest ATI-Driver here:
+
 
+
[http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/linux/linux-radeon.html|ATI Linux Driver]
+
 
+
The above bugzilla contains a patch to the firegl module source code. Here is an annotated walk-through for those not familiar with using the patch utility:
+
* Install the driver interactively
+
sh ./ati-driver-installer-8.42.3-x86.x86_64.run
+
* Backup the existing module, download the patch
+
cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/
+
cp firegl_public.c firegl_public.c.orig
+
wget -qO- http://ati.cchtml.com/attachment.cgi?id=466 > firegl.patch
+
* Apply the patch
+
patch -p0 < firegl.patch
+
* Now build and install the kernel module
+
./make.sh
+
cd .. ; ./make_install.sh
+
* Create an initial X Server configuration file
+
aticonfig --initial
+
* Restart your X Server (by logging out/in or rebooting)
+
 
+
==Issues==
+
* AMD/ATI Catalist Control Center (amdcccle) fails to start, see [http://ati.cchtml.com/show_bug.cgi?id=672 this bugzilla entry].
+
 
+
FYI: this patch (and others like it) is incomplete.  It fails miserably with the drm module loaded.  It will not work without drm either, and what would be the point?
+
As seen by dmesg:
+
 
+
[drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
+
[fglrx] Maximum main memory to use for locked dma buffers: 1898 MBytes.
+
[fglrx] ASYNCIO init succeed!
+
[fglrx:KCL_enable_pat] *ERROR* Pat entry 2 is already configured
+
[fglrx] PAT is disabled!
+
[fglrx:firegl_init_module] *ERROR* firegl_stub_register failed
+
 
+
The livna rpm incurs the same failure.  Stick with F7 and kernel 2.6.22, or use the radeon driver instead.
+
 
+
----
+
Updated by yangyud:<br>
+
You need to remove the loaded "drm" module from kernel before install the fglrx module.<br>
+
'''rmmod radeon; rmmod drm'''  <br>
+
 
+
==See Also==
+
* [[Frequently Asked Questions#Why does fglrx not work for my bleeding-edge kernel?]]
+
 
+
[[Category:Installation Documentation]]
+
Ok, the problem is gdm.  I can `startx`, but gdm fails to load with fglrx, and there is no indication in any log as to why.
+
This continues with new 7.11 Catalyst driver.
+
Because of this, the problem is NOT with the driver, rather it is the default GDM time value of 10-seconds.  To remedy:
+
 
+
vi /etc/gdm/custom.conf
+
+
[daemon]
+
GdmXserverTimeout=60
+
 
+
This allows enough time for X to startup before gdm considers it dead and aborts the X startup process.
