Revision as of 00:47, 23 August 2008

General Status

  • Uses kernel 2.6.25
  • Uses Xorg 7.1
  • Use of the ATI driver requires patching and a downgrade of the X server

Installation Option #1 Downgrade X and use the Livna repository

See the Fedora 9 FGLRX HOWTO

Installation Option #2 Local RPM Build

Releases through Catalyst 8.8 do not work on Fedora 9 without extensive patching/downgrading. See the Catalyst 8.4 - 8.8 failures

Issues

Current driver releases do not build on Fedora 9 without patching, and the resulting RPM packages crash the X server. Downgrading X and installing a older ATI driver release is an option.
