You can download the latest snapshot of the drivers from here. Just download the tarball, extract it (tar -jxvf <filename>), then follow the instructions included in the package to install it.

Alternatively, if you really want Fedora Core, release 5 is currently in beta, and should be released in 2 weeks.

hi i tried installing the drivers but the installation failed giving the errors-"ERROR Kernel modules did not compile try installing latest Kernel Modules and try installing".

i don't know what went wrong isn't my kernel modules new. i had installed Fedora core 2.6.11-1369_FC4smp. if my kernel modules are not new where can i find the latest kernel modules and how to install it. i could not start the GDM after the driver installation failed.

Part of the driver package is a kernel module to give X access to the frame buffer. You will need to install either the kernel-devel rpms or the kernel-source rpms (I can't remember which Fedora uses). Once they are installed the kernel module should compile and install.

Make sure you have kernel-devel installed properly (click the link to download it if you need to). It looks like this may be your problem. I'm getting it to build on my Mandriva just fine (I'm currently downloading FC4 to test it). If this doesn't solve your build problem, let me know and I'll try to get back to you this week (school, work, etc).

Sorry for not getting back to you, I've been busy these last few weeks working on audio issues in the latest alsa release.

I believe FC5 will fix your problems. In my testing, it worked fairly well. You should get native Xwindows support, and audio support as well. FC5 should set up your system on it's own. Let me know how it goes, and I'll try to help where I can.
