Installation from RPMS built from the ATI installer (use only if you need a driver more recent than PLF backports)

First, download ati driver/installer and launch it with the parameter that ask for the RPM creation. Then install the built RPMS :

# su
$ chmod x ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run
$ ./ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run --buildpkg Mandriva/2008.1
$ urpmi *fglrx*.rpm

Installation with ATI installer (not recommended: use only if you cannot use the above methods)

Nowadays ATI supports pretty well Linux SO. The installer has a simply-to-use graphical interface so the instalation is automatic.

First, download ati driver/installer and launch it:

# chmod x ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run
# ./ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run

Follow the instructions. After that you have to reboot the Xorg server. For that you could reboot the computer or the easiest way: Crtl+Alt+Backspace

DKMS error during installation:

If you have error in DKMS module installation for kernel (In console crash, in X server "DKMS installation failed. See ati-install.log for details"), probably you have not install "kernel-xxx-devel". So you have to download it and install it. Try also "libncurses-devel" Warning: If you do not download it, XV will not work (use "xvinfo" for check).
