Remove any NVIDIA Drivers before proceding.

Hent ATI Drivers til XFree86 4.30

http://www.ati.com/support/drivers/linux/radeon-linux.html

Hent Fedora Core 2 Patch
http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=3340

Derefter aabner du en terminal som root og henter kernesovs.

# yum install kernel-sourcecode

Installer ATI Drivere

# rpm -Uvh --replacefiles fglrx-4.3.0-*.i386.rpm

Apply the patch

# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod
# gunzip -c /tmp/fglrx-fedora.patch.gz | patch -p1

Build the module and install it
# sh make.sh
# cd ..
# sh make_install.sh

Now we need to install it, switch to runleve 3

# telinit 3

Login as root and remove current radeon drivers

# rmmod radeon
# rmmod fglxrx

Configure the the new driver and create x config file

# fglrxconfig

Symlink the ned config file
# cd /etc/X11
# mv xort.conf xorg.conf.bak
# ln -sf XF86Config-4 xorg.conf

Apply this fix , its a mouse error the fglrxconfig introduces
# sed -i 's/\dev\/mouse/\/dev\/input\/mice/g' /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Start X again
telinit 5
