There are two ways of installing the fglrx driver on Fedora Core. Packages provided by ATI or livna.org are available for installation. The difference of methods allows users to download a package that suits their style. The livna.org package is a lot easier for beginners and newbies, and provides only packages when they are working without problems. The configuration is done automatically with livna.org packages, too.

  • Note: You must have your "kernel-devel-[version]" RPM package installed prior to fglrx installation.

livna.org package[edit]

1.Install the livna.org repository:

rpm -Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/4/i386/RPMS.lvn/livna-release-4-0.lvn.7.4.noarch.rpm

2.Install the drivers:

yum install kernel-module-fglrx-$(uname -r)

Script installer[edit]

  1. Download the latest release.
  2. su to root
  3. ./ati-installer-(version).run
  4. Follow the prompts and it will install.
  5. Reboot upon completion of installation.

RPM installer[edit]

  1. Download the latest release.
  2. su to root
  3. rpm -Uhv fglrx_6_8_0-(version).rpm
  4. Reboot upon completion.

Check the Frequently Asked Questions page for checking if installation was a success.
