0) Graphic Driver Problems
– For ATI RadeonHD cards (especially x1250 and x1200)
yum install xorg-x11-drv-radeonhd
if /etc/X11/xorg.conf doesnt exist
yum install system-config-display
Run system-config-display –reconfig in terminal.
Option "DRI" "True"
– Or Install fglrx (At the time of writing of post official rpmfusion drivers dont exist)
Hence Fedora 10 ‘s kernel needs to be installed .Refer this post
(Make sure that you use correct driver since ati recently removed support for many cards )
1) Enabling OSS
(This is needed for Real Player 11 as it crashes with ALSA)
(In Root /Sudo Mode)
uncomment line as mentioned
2) Fixing glitchy sound problems.
There are many solutions to the sound problems listed in http://fedoraforums.org
They mainly deal with time scheduling
Other solutions consist of
– Enable OSS (See Above)
– Install OSS v4.x ( This replaces all the ALSA/Pulse Audio kernel modules)
3) Enabling TAP in MousePad / Touchpad
– Temporary Measure
– Permanent Measures
– System > Prefrences > Mouse >Touchpad > Enable mouse clicks
– Modifying xorg.conf
NOTE: IF YOU FIND ANY PROBLEM / ALTERNATE SOLUTION WITH ABOVE FIXES PLEASE POST A COMMENT.
REFER TO NEWER POST HERE
Yes, this is a script to install fglrx on fedora 10 due to problems faced by people.
– Remove all packages related to previous attempts to install fglrx
– For time being this supports only 32 bit Fedora 10
– Since its new it will have many unobserved bugs even though it has been tested
-This uses the ati driver at http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
-Any bugs encountered please comment them at this blog
To install put driver and script in same folder and run sh installfglrx (root mode)
AFTER INSTALL(if everything is working_:
instead of nomodset put vga=0xA
A is the VESA mode http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VESA_BIOS_Extensions
These instructions are for installing fglrx on ATI cards it also removes the flickering that radeon might be giving.
You could also follow the guide at fedora forums but this is more simple.(Using 8.12 Driver)
(if you have followed other methods, please roll-back to previous system state,remove related packages)
1)Get Fedora 9s libdrm
rpm -ivh --nodeps --oldpackage http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/i386/os/Packages/libdrm-2.4.0-0.11.fc9.i386.rpm
rpm -ivh --nodeps --oldpackage http://mirror.yandex.ru/fedora/linux/releases/9/Everything/x86_64/os/Packages/libdrm-2.4.0-0.11.fc9.x86_64.rpm
2)Go to AMD official Site Download the driver:
4)Create a blank xorg.conf in /etc/X11 (if u have a xorg.conf ,delete and make empty file)
aticonfig --initial -f
6) Edit xorg.conf
Add following to “Device”
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off" Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
7)In the end add
Section "DRI" Mode 0666 EndSection
8)Backup Old initrd
mv /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img.0
9)Remake initrd for the kernel (So the radeon module is not force loaded)
mkinitrd /boot/initrd-`uname -r`.img `uname -r`
10) Prevent libdrm from being upgraded
perl -i -pe "s/([.*])/1nexclude=libdrm/" /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo perl -i -pe "s/([.*])/1nexclude=libdrm/" /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo
/boot/grub/grub.conf in root mode
line and add
mode for me was
which was 1024×768 32 bit
13)Reboot and Voila !!
