I just installed fc5 and got the livna repo and when i do yum install kernel-module-fglrx-$(uname -r) it gives me this

[root@localhost lyle]# yum install kernel-module-fglrx-$(uname -r)

Have you tried just 'yum install kernel-module-fglrx' - it is possible that the exact build for your kernel is not available.

I'm having the same problem. I've also tried installing the driver through yum and nothing happened. Does anyone have the solution?? I've RTMA and followed every step very carefully and still stuck. FC5 doesn't seem to work well with Ati video cards.

Have a read on the Livna website about installing ATI drivers:

Tronic: Try the 'yum install kmod-fglrx-smp' cmd.
