ATI video card driver install from hell
I am very new here and this is my 1st install of Linux distro (fedora core 1) & I really need some help because getting video card drivers installed should not be near as complicated as it seems with me. Maybe its just because I am new but here go's.
I am running FC1 and have a ATI Radion 9800XT (failrly new card) and I downloaded the rpm. file and installed it. It asked me like 20-30 things in the installer that I really had no knowlege of so I kept all default just for safe keeping. Its says to make sure that the drivers are installed correctly to type "fglrxinfo" and if I see OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc., then the drivers are installed correctly. So I rebooted before logging back into KDE. I saw my resolution was all low 640x480 so I went "system settings > display" and was on the 1st tab called "settings" I can see the resolution listed here but when I select it to change to something higher, it can't as if it is the only available resolution for the card...???!!! I then click ovewr to the next tab called "hardware" and both options "monitor" & "video card" are both unknown???
What is wrong with my install when I followed the instruction to the tee?
Someone please help me - this has been 14 day experience and need some closure.
