Installing video drivers for ATI 200 express for fedora 7
I have a problem regariding the desktop resolution,after installing fedora 7, the desktop resolution is just 800 x 600 which is very uncomfortable. I have downloaded the required drivers from ATI website.
Before instaling the drivers it asks to check if xfree86 is present or not.
To verify which i have downloaded check.sh file and tried to run it.
using following cmd
but its returning you dont have permission to run the console or you are not running from console unable to retrieve the xfree86 information.
I have checked the permission and modified the permissions using command
chmod 777 check.sh\
I am also logged in as root.
But still it is returning the same result.Plz help me to run the check.sh file
I am a newbie
Visit one of the third party repos, like freshrpms and install the yum repo configuration rpm package;
rpm -Uvh http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrp....fc.noarch.rpm
When ready type, it is best if one exits out of the GUI session first:
yum install ati-x11-drv
(you may have to press the 'Enter' key after the last green [OK] is displayed)
system-config-display --reconfig --set-depth=24 --set-driver=fglrx
Login to run level 3 and sh(execute)ATI driver.
Plz do reply..
Thanx in advance
When the grub splash screen is displayed press any key
Select the Linux boot choice and press the 'e' key
Select the kernel line and press the 'e' key again
At the end of the line add a space followed by the number three (3)
When done press the 'Enter' key followed by the 'b' key
Log on as root
From the GUI log on screen press the three key combo of Ctrl+Alt+F1
log on as root
type: init 3
Note you may have to press the 'Enter' key after the last green [OK] is displayed.
For yum info read: http://docs.fedoraproject.org/yum/
