FGLRX driver from RPM Fusion (this will auto update with kernel update)

  • first update system
 yum check-update
 yum update
  • reboot
  • in software manager enable "fedora 18 source\source-update"
  • Install require stuff to get work properly
 yum install gcc kernel-devel kernel-headers wget

Add Rpm Fusion Repo

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-18.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-18.noarch.rpm


  • This will provide the latest driver and Control Panel Cat-13.1
 yum install akmod-catalyst
  • if dependency check-out you will have to

interact by typing Y to install

  • If all is good you need to rebuild the kernel. (NEED TO BE DONE EACH TIME AKMOD UPDATE APPEND FOR BEST RESULT)

Type this in the terminal

new-kernel-pkg --kernel-args=nomodeset --mkinitrd --dracut --update $(rpm -q --queryformat="%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n" kernel | tail -n 1)
aticonfig --initial -f
  • reboot

Good luck
