There are two ways of installing graphic drivers on Fedora Core. The first way is to take precompiled packets from the rpm-repository livna.org. The second way is to use the pacakges provided by ati to install the drivers.

The difference is that livna.org 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.

Script installer

  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

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

livna.org package

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)

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