    what i don have
    i don't have the the namechange from mesa to ati in the xorg.conf
    when i tell it to do "service fglrx restart" it says
    Code:
     bash: service: command not found
    when i reboot it tells me that itś enabling the fglrx and that it may take a while, that works out okay and passes, then whenit should load my xserver it fails and says i fudged something up and that it will repair it =/

    what would you suggest i do next?


    oh btw, i have my xorg.conf exactly like described

    I have not tried FC7 test4 yet ( I am going to wait for the final release ) and don't know if the XGL script will work for FC7.

    As for the livna driver did you use the right release key.?
    Can you also post the output from these commands

    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE


    and


    cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep WW

    I have just looked at both repositories ( 6.93 & 7 ) and the fglrx driver versions dont match the kernel modules .
    I will have a word with the person responsible and see if he can correct it.

    Thanks for this it works great. The fact that you manually downloaded the packages does that run the risk of being outdated? Is there a repository to upgrade all the parts of compiz/xgl/ beryl?

    I have had a quick look at the script and the packages seem to be provided by this repository

    http://fedoraxgl.tuxfamily.org/repos...0-3.noarch.rpm

    So they should get any updates when released

    Best regards

    You have a i585 kernel and need to swap it for a i686 kernel as described in section 1

    to check

    rpm -qa --queryformat "%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}.%{ARCH}\n"|grep kernel|sort
    to fix

    su -c "yum install yum-utils"
    yumdownloader kernel.i686
    su -c "rpm -ivh --replacefiles --replacepkgs kernel-2*.i686.rpm"
    reboot

    then run these commands again

    su -
    yum install kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs-32bit
    yum update kmod-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx xorg-x11-drv-fglrx-libs-32bit
    service fglrx restart
    fglrx-config-display enable
    You will need to read my howto carefully as all the steps are required

    Hi leigh123
    Thank you .. leigh123, I got fglrx driver installed and Beryl too. Well .. please let me ask more questions.
    After installing them, I lost my desktop effects. Although I tried with Beryl Manager, I got nothing effects.
    And all resolutions were changed from my current resolution 1024x768 to the 1280x1024. Although I could change my destop resolution to 1024x768, but Starting screen and Login screen are in 1280x1024. So how can I fix it and How can I get Desktop Effects?

    Best regards

    PS: have a nice day
