ATI Radon 9200 driver


Hello all,

I need a driver for an ATI Radon 9200 i have been to the ati site and the page just hangs and doesn't give me the driver. i have done a yum install ati

and that doesnt work. I was wondering if anyone knows where i can get the driver for this card.


I am using a clean install of F8 with the latest stable 2.6 kernel.

Thanks in advance

ATI DID DROP SUPPORT FOR 9200 --DONT INSTALL FGLRX--

You need to use the .28 version of fglrx, you also need a kernel older then 2.6.18 and an xorg version older than 7.2. You can also use the open source driver, it is not really good at 3d, but it is better for compiz/beryl and desktop use (but not game or modeling)
