    im running
    fedora 7 i386
    video card: Asus fx v9570
    If this is your hardware you have a nvidia card ( FX 5700 )

    to confirm these run this command

    Code:
    su -
    lspci |grep VGA

    Remove all the changes in xorg.conf that you made then run these commands


    Code:
    su -
    init 3
    yum remove kmod-fglrx
    yum install kmod-nvidia beryl*
    nvidia-config-display enable
    service nvidia restart
    reboot

    then post your xorg.conf

    OK, here is my experience (apologies if this has already been covered, I stopped reading at page 5):

    After waiting for AMD to release a compatible driver, I did a fresh install of Fedora 7. The system is an AMD Sempron 3400+ (x86_64) with an onboard Radeon Xpress 200.

    I followed the instructions in Post #2 for livna and x86_64. After doing everything up to XGL, I restarted X and it still showed Mesa and no direct rendering. I went back to this thread and saw on page 3 or 4 the suggestion to do a yum remove, then yum install and yum update. I did that and it finally showed

    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon Xpress Series
    OpenGL version string: 2.0.6747 (8.40.4)

    I then restarted X again and it died with a Signal 11 (invalid memory reference). I booted my old FC6 and came back to this thread. I realized I didn't apply the patch in post #2 after doing the yum install again. I applied the patch and now it works fine.

    fglrx (livna) works for me on an Acer 1694WLMi (X700 graphics card) - XGL only kind-of worked - everything ran but it was so slow it was unusable. glxgears gives 8500

    For anyone having problems with Google Earth hanging at "initializing" stage (never getting past the logo screen) see here for a solution that worked for me.

    One annoyance is that when using these drivers the fan(s) in the PC are constantly spinning at top speed which is a bit noisy.

    My beryl works great. I am having problems with Google Earth and some other Thing with Glibc. I get a SELinux Troubleshooter Alert. As soon as I get home, Im gonna try to fix Google Earth.

    Thanks for telling me. Did that mess anything up? It does work fine tho. If I ran the script would it affect anything if i have nvidia installed already? Thanks for all your help.

    The easiest way to tell if you don't need xgl would be to log into a non xgl gnome or kde session and see if beryl still works , if it does run the script again with -r at the end to remove xgl

    i ran:

    yum install ati-x11-drv

    and got all this:

    Loading "protectbase" plugin
    Loading "installonlyn" plugin
    Setting up Install Process
    Parsing package install arguments
    73 packages excluded due to repository protections
    Resolving Dependencies
    --> Running transaction check

    etc etc and ended up with this:

    --> Restarting Dependency Resolution with new changes.
    --> Running transaction check
    ---> Package ati-x11-drv.x86_64 0:8.40.4-2.fc7 set to be updated
    Error: Unable to satisfy dependencies
    Error: Package ati-x11-drv conflicts with xorg-x11-drv-fglrx.

    how do i fix these errors so i can finally get my ati drivers to work?!

    thanks

    edit: I installed the ati radeon x800 linux x64 drivers straight from the website and nomatter what ive tried im not able to start the x server, so i switched to fglrx and it still wont start x server, so it goes into default ati generic drivers....i figured this howto would help me get my exact drivers running...

    just figured id post some info!

    You can have only one driver ( you are just plain greedy wanting two )

    try

    Code:
    su -
    yum remove kmod-fglrx livna-config-display
    yum install  ati-x11-drv
