Ok guys I'm a completle linux newbie here.
I've tried linux a few times before but never dived in this deep before. I've been running fedora core 5 for 2 weeks or so now. Getting flash installed was a 3 day ordeal and my mouse was too. Now I'm trying to get my ATI X700 Pro to work properly. The DVI only works with duel head turned on and then video apps such as Mplayer don't wanna work. They give me an error saying "Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device." I'm guessing that if i could get the drivers installed it may work.
Problem is that when i run the ATI driver installer by typing in "[root@linuxbox download]# sh ./ati-driver-installer-8.29.6.run" I get this...
Creating directory fglrx-install
Verifying archive integrity...Error in MD5 checksums: 4f118c6488d7657f9c53504440c97f14 is different from 1fc4f90ee43157892fd2471e7243408c
I know that I'm running Xorg 7.0.
"[root@linuxbox bin]$ Xorg -version
