Fedora 14 x64 ATI driver installation problems. please help.
 
Hello,
please help me if you can.

my Setup is Fedora 14 x64 + radeon hd 4830
i've downloaded .run package from ati site with latest driver for x64 systems.
installed it, but didn't edited grub.conf becouse i didn't understood anything there (probably didn't spent enough time to get things understand)

Now i've lost possibility to enter my Fedora system.
during boot it lost it's modern blue boot screen (with filling drop), it was replaced by standard old boot screen with triple-color stripe.
after this boot screen monitor start blinking going on and off.
and on last step i'm getting "Fedora 14 boot bla bla bla something" on screen....nothing works except Ctrl+Alt+Delete....system reboots showing successful daemons shutting sequence.


How can i edit grub menu from initial grub screen is it possible to it's own 'e' option or 'c' from grub command line?

Hi,
From what I've seen there's no support for Ati video cards in Fedora14. We still have to wait for it. You should uninstall the ATI driver for now and remain with default driver.

but if ATI has .run package for x64 system, this still means no support for x64?


How can i uninstall this driver? or "Roll Back" driver? or maybe better to make clean install of system?

Hi, sorry for answering now, you can go into the directory where you have extracted the driver and there is a script with uninstall or something. You have to run it with ./script-name.
If there is still problems you can reinstall Gnome(or what you use) and also x-org.
All the best.

Look at this web page http://shnwmchk.blogspot.com/2010/12...1-install.html

It worked fine for me and it is well explained. At step 13 you need to add the "nomodeset" after every word "quiet" in grub.conf file
