ATI fglrx Drivers

ATI Stinks, P-U.

I installed Fedora's kmod-fglrx, and Livna's x11-fglrx-drv or something like that. The official ATI drivers won't build, period, and give no useful errors.

Did I mention ATI stinks??

How to install ATI drivers on Fedora Core 6 --buildpkg Fedora/FC6
# glxinfo | grep direct

If the output is direct rendering: Yes, you have installed your drivers correctly.

However, if you have an AMD64 processor, you will need to add iommu=off to the kernel line in your /etc/grub.conf file, like this:

kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet iommu=off

Moreover, if you have an Intel motherboard, you will need to add the following line to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, right below Driver “fglrx”:

Option "UseInternalAGPGART" "no"
Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Disable"
