fglrx drivers ati x700 on fedora 8


Hi,

I am trying to install the fglrx drivers provided from ati.

on trying to build the fedora8 specific rpm i get this error:: this is a snippet from the commands shown while building the pkg...and ends with this error..

Code:
Requires(postun): /bin/sh
Checking for unpackaged file(s): /usr/lib/rpm/check-files /tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.452.1-1-3209-root/tmp/ATI-fglrx-8.452.1-1.f8-root-root
error: Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:
   /usr/sbin/amdnotifyui


RPM build errors:
    Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found:
   /usr/sbin/amdnotifyui


can anyone guide me on this..

basically i am trying this installation of ati drivers because opengl programs dont run flawlessly...the title bar of opengl programs dont show...,when draging the window...the rendering part of the window stays on its place...doesnt drag etc etc...

so please some one guide me in installing the ati drivers on my fedora 8.

Thanks very much.

I took the simple option and used yum to do the job. I can't remember what I actually needed but it went something like this:
Code:
# rpm -ivh livna-release-8.rpm 
# yum install kmod-fglrx

also:
 xorg-x11-drv-fglrx
Then to iron out the bugs was down to configuring xorg.conf. Some of which goes like this:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
	Identifier   "Monitor0"
	VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
	ModelName    "Monitor Model"
	HorizSync    31.5 - 70.0
	VertRefresh  50.0 - 90.0
#	HorizSync    29 - 49
#	VertRefresh  43 - 72
	Option		"dpms"					"true"
EndSection

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "fglrx"
	Option	    "OpenGLOverlay" "off"
	Option	    "VideoOverlay" "on"
	
	Option		"DRI"     				"true"		#	NEW
	Option		"XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true"		#	NEW
EndSection

Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Screen0"
	Device		"Videocard0"
	Monitor		"Monitor0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Viewport   	0 0
		Depth     	24
		Modes		"1280x1024_70"
	EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
	Group 0				#	NEW
	Mode         0666
EndSection
This was for a DELL Inspiron laptop...
