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

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)

  5. Reboot upon completion of installation.
