Hi folks !
I moved this weekend from nVidia to ATI Radeon 9700Pro.
My purpose is to share how I proceeded, it could maybe help some of you.
1/ Login as ROOT
2/ Download the ATI rpm package which will be further needed for installation :
3/ Uninstall previous Gfx Card drivers & packages (via command rpm -e package_name.rpm)
If the uninstallation doesn't seem to occur smoothly or incompletely : use Synaptic (available from Connectiva website) to remove the packages.
4/ Launch the Display Manager and choose the RedHat native ATI 9700 driver in VESA mode
5/ Shut down
6/ Remove previous Gfx card
7/ Plug in the new Gfx card Radeon 9700Pro
8/ Boot up & Login as ROOT
9/ Install the previously downloaded package RPM :
rpm -i --force /Path_to_the_package/package_name.rpm
- in this very case the package_name.rpm should be fglrx-glc22-4.2.0-2.5.1.i586.rpm
- the option --force is needed to overwrite the file libGL.so
11/ Restart system
12/ Login as user
13/ Fine tune your new installed Gfx display adapter & ENJOY !!!!
