    Did I install ATI drivers wrong?


    Am I wrong or did I not install my graphics card drivers correct?

    I just downloaded the RPM file - extracted it I guess and then ran the fglrxconfig utility to run through all the settings w/ the questions it asks me.

    Am I suppose to mod some XFree86 file as well or is this something just for Fedora Core 2?

    If you ran fglrxconfig as root, then it should ask you if you want to overwrite /etc/X11/XF86Config with the new one. All you have to do from there is:

    Code:
    modprobe fglrx
    opengl-update ati
    Then restart/start X. That should give you OpenGL joy.

    Code:
    [root@localhost /]# modprobe fglrx
    bash: modprobe: command not found
    What am I doing wrong?

    You need to download modutils from your favorite RPM site and install that. Then you should be able to modprobe.
