EDIT: I wrote this months ago. I'm happy for those people that did get it working. Unfortunatly because linux rapidly changes from month to month so do the installation procedures for various things. I have not yet even tried to install the ATI drivers on the newest Fedora for I am still running the version when I wrote this how-to. I will fully update my install and find the best possible way to install ATI drivers (as bad as they still may be Under linux) and I will then post a new how-to.
I have done it people. I have Gotton ATI's newest drivers to work on the newest update of fedora core 3. I now can use cedega to play games that were once choopy and horrible but are now just like playing them on windows. If you want to find out what I did read on.
1) Log on as root
2) Right-Click on this link and save link as ATI'S WEBSITE
3) Save it to roots home directory and name it something easy to remember like ati.rpm
4) Open a terminal, navigate to where you saved it, and type "rpm -Uvh --force ati.rpm" It will try to force, then it will fail.
5) Next thing you need to do is in the same terminal type "yum install gcc" (If you don't know how to setup yum head over to fedorafaq.com or just post in this thread asking)
6) Once that is installed, do what step 4 says then continue here. You then need to go download 2 patches from This Website
. Again right click and save link as.
7) Then in the terminal type "cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/"
8) Then type "patch -p0 </path to patch file/p1.patch" (if spelled coorectly it should take about 3 seconds for each patch)
9) Then type "patch -p0 </path to patch file/p2.patch"
10) Then type "sh make.sh"
11) When finished at the bottom of the output it will ask you to navagte to a different spot and run "sh make_install.sh"
12) When that is finished type "fglrxconfig" and choose all the default options.
13) Guess what guys and gals, restart the computer, log in, open up a terminal and run "glxgears" If your over all fps is over 2000 (which it should be) you have successfully installed the newest, and so far the best ati drivers I have seen.
14) Now for the Cedega part. Head over to Trans-Gaming
, sign up, download point 2 play, have point 2 play download the recent cedega version and microsoft fonts. You're Done.
The games I have had success with so far is Warcraft III Reign of Chaos and Half-Life 2. Just make sure you run your game in a window of 1024x768 and resize your desktop to that window size also an you're good.
If you want to use cedega to play games I would definatly recommend ubuntu over fc3 bcause for some reason it rarely crashes and games run smoother than I had them running in fc3.
Any questions just post here and i'll do my best to answer them. This fix may work for other distros with yum but I have not tried any others except Fedora Core 3 fully yum updated from the livna libraries.
