Program file placement. &ATI Drivers
I am still a newbie working on the learning curve and I have a couple of general questions. First off, I downloaded and installed RealPlayer 10. It works fine so that is a victory. I am curious to know if there is a particular place one should install a program. I installed the RealPlayer in my home directory. Was that the correct place to install it, or should I have chosen a different directory. I guess I am asking if there is a specific protocol that should be followed when installing a program that is not included on the regular fedora cd's.
Secondly, I have a older ATI video card. It is an ATI Rage XL PCI. I dowloaded the ATI fglrx drivers but when I tried to use them,I received a message indicating something to the effect that they were not totally compatible with a card that old. Does anyone know where I might find a driver that would be compatible with this older card?
Any information would be greatly appreciated and thanks to all of you that have helped me in the past to learn more about this OS.
