The latest driver from ATI, version 8.32.5 now works on AMD 64, with x86_64 Linux (Fedora Core 6). Thanks to this forum, I was able to create the rpms and install. I have detailed it on my website www.partha.com (it is in 2 parts so be sure to read both parts for installation etc.).
Hope it helps others in the same boat.
should it create five rpms every time? I only get 4
oh and i only get mesa as OpenGL
On x86_64 it should create five RPMs (with the fifth one being for 32-bit libs). What RPMs are you getting?
i get everyone except the AI lib. Could it be the problem with not getting 3d acceleration?
Yes i use x86_64
weird part is that when i tried to compile it now..it says i need kernel-devel.. i have succesfully compiled it before.
im going to reinstall kernel-devel and check the arch on it.

Also make sure you grab kernel-headers.
hmm something fishy here... i have them both installed. and its still whining about kernel-devel.
Are you running a Xen kernel right now? (Just checking)
nah... removed them earlier... when i removed the kernel-devel and kernel-headers i destroyed my X.org. So i had to reinstall-
Will see if i can compile it right this time.
I got a little problem this morning. GRUB decided to remove FC from the list and on top of that gnome was not available, but now I could compile it again.
Got these packages:

installed them all. Going for a reboot now then ill do a glxinfo | grep direct.
glxinfo |grep direct
direct rendering: Yes
and now some disturbing news: I did fgl_rxgear and i got the cube spinning around. The disturbing thing is that the upper taskbar got the graphics of the gears.
