If you have an rpm based distro, you should jus be able to run the rpm, but make sure you have your kernel source installed. If you can't install from rpms, you're going to have to convert it to a tgz first, and then run. If you have your kernel source installed, you shouldn't run into any problems. After it's done, just run fglrxconfig and that should be it.

Please don't start another thread. I've answered your question here
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=119909

ATI gives you the opp to download a script which will tell you which version your running on the second link.
