Need Help: Really want to get ATI drivers working on FC6
I am using a new install of Fedora Core 6, I would really appreciate a step by step walkthrough. I have used linux for a while but am still not sure of terms such as "make sure that the make package is installed".
I have an ATI Radeon 9700, I used to be able to get the 3D accelleration working on Fedora Core 3 with an older version of the driver but have had no luck with FC6
Also... If I have ATI Driver Installer.bin do i also need XFree86 4.3 Drivers or X.Org 6.8 Drivers installed aswell or is it all included in the installer

When i create a package i get this output
ATI Technologies Linux Driver Installer/Packager
Generating package: Fedora/FC6
./packages/Fedora/ati-packager.sh: line 195: /etc/profile.d/qt.sh: No such file or directory
Removing temporary directory: fglrx-install
Yep did so and it all gets made into some packages... (ATI said that qt was not required... but then again, they also said that their drivers worked )
Ok I have then run these rpms which needed to install the dependency compatc++ Thats all good. It was still on MESA so i edited xorg.conf and typed in some extension composite disabled or some shit... now its all working great.
Yay, UT2004 here i come !
(is there any way for the yum to tell me the required dependency without going online? Coz i dont want to drag my other FC6 PC downstairs just to download some dependency which i already have on the damn disk lol)
(How did u know I needed qt-devel and not some other QT package?)
Anyways, thanks for all your support, you should start charging people
