Let me first start out by saying that I normally run Nvidia cards, which don't have this problem since even the really old FX5200's are supported by their latest driver packages.
I have a machine at work that I've acquired from someone that left the company. It has a Radeon X1300 in it. I just installed F16 on it and installed the rpmfusion akmod-catalyst driver. X won't start.
aticonfig says no supported video card found.
AMD's website says they consider it legacy and that the last version of Catalyst that supports it is 9.3. I don't want to use the binary package from AMD. I can't use the fedora-supplied drivers as they cause GNOME to fall back to the metacity desktop instead of the new one (FWIW, the nouveau drivers do the same on my PCs running nvidia cards)
Does anyone know where I can find a sanely packaged/updated version of Catalyst 9.3 that could (theoretically) be installed on Fedora versions after F12?
