Scientific Linux 5.0

The ATI driver installer as of version 8.2.4 has the ability to build RPMs.

ati-driver-installer-VERSION-x86.x86_64.run --listpkg

shows the packages it can build. You may use the Red Hat drivers for Scientific Linux. For Scientific Linux 6 (64-bit) you would run:

ati-driver-installer-X.X.X-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg RedHat/RHEL6_64a

and it generated RPMs for your specific version (e.g. version 12-3 produces) :

 fglrx64_p_i_c-8.951-1.x86_64.rpm

To install these RPMs run

rpm -Uvh <rpm_path>

After the RPM installation, make sure to run aticonfig to setup your video card.

aticonfig --initial

Your setup may be tested when X is not running with:

startx
