General Status

  • Uses kernel 2.6
  • Uses Xorg 7
  • Use of the ATI driver requires self build of rpm package + ubuntu tarball
  • weak performance worst then radeon/radeonhd drivers

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 8.9 do not work on Fedora 9 without extensive patching/downgrading. See the Catalyst 8.4 - 8.9 failures

Installation Option #3 Ubuntu tarball

  • Download 8.542 package fglrx-8.542
  • sudo sh ati-driver-installer-8-10-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Fedora/F9
  • sudo rpm -ivh kernel....rpm
  • sudo rpm -ivh ATI-fglrx-8.....rpm
  • sudo rpm -ivh ATI-fglrx-c.....rpm
  • untar fglxrx-8.543
  • sudo cp -rv fglx/x740/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/* /usr/lib/xorg/modules

Installation Option 4 Install the latest driver

Try the latest release from ATI Version 8.11.

It installed and ran ok on a single screen, but I could not properly configure the resolution on two monitors.
