F16 ATI catalyst

Does the fglrx/catalyst driver work in F16?
The fglrx guide is not updated and it seems there are no catalyst rpms in rpmfusion for F16.
Is there a reason for this or should I just be more patient?
Thanks in advance.

Re: F16 ATI catalyst

So is there a way to stop my hd6870 from running at 100% fanspeed/noise as long as no catalyst drivers are available?

Re: F16 ATI catalyst

I actually had the same question. Is it just not standard for rpmfusion to have the packages this soon to launch? On average how many days does it take?

No, there is a way now as the open source ATi driver now supports KMS.

# echo low > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_profile

^^ do this and your card will instantly switch to low power + low fan speed mode. There are "low" "mid" "high" "auto" and "default" modes.

But this will be temporary and you'll have to do this every time you reboot. For this, add the above line to /etc/rc.d/rc.local which will execute it every time at boot.

Note: rc.local is not packaged by default in Fedora 16. You'll have to create it yourself.

Alternatively, you can also switch to dynamic load based switching by:

# echo dynpm > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_method

but this is a bit problematic. So stick with "profile" in the power_method and "low" in power_profile.

Re: F16 ATI catalyst

I had upgraded to F16 from F15,without any issues(particularly the repositories configuration problems).
I had previously installed : ati-driver-installer-11-9-x86.x86_64.run,onto Fedora 15(64-bit),and it was running with compiz settings, eye candy features, and proper resolution.
After,upgradation,when I uninstalled the above mentioned driver and installed ati-driver-installer-11-10-x86_64.run, the graphical desktop login does not occur,but only parallel set of white lines,fills half the screen.
Even uninstalling and reverting to the old driver(ati/amd) shows the same problem.

My Monitor is Viewsonic VA1703wb TFT - LCD ,17" ,with max. resolution of 1440x900.
Uninstalling the ati driver,keeps my Monitor resolution at 1280x768(as default,with ugly looking Desktop).

PLEASE HELP ME....

Re: F16 ATI catalyst

fc16 uses a new version of Xorg. this version isn't supported by the ati catalyst driver jet.
I bought new hardware and run in the same problem
I read somewhere that they will provide a new driver until end of november...

Re: F16 ATI catalyst

Installed 11.11 from testing repository today.

Code:
# install repo
rpm -ivh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

# install drivers from testing repo
yum --enablerepo=rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing install akmod-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst
The activities overlay is a little bit slow and has some glitches. gnome-shell crashes some times while displaying tooltip overlays.

To minimize that I found this tweak in another Thread "Howto for fglrx / catalyst (Ati driver)".

Code:
# vi /etc/environment
export CLUTTER_VBLANK=none
Not cool but rarely

[QUOTE=visit;1530865]Installed 11.11 from testing repository today.

Would this also be required?

I installed the testing repo, but still can´t get the catalyst drivers, the nvidia ones are there but not the amd ones?
