    Installing drivers


    I have a new video card for dual monitor set up.
    I run Fedora Core 6.
    I want to set it up to use dual monitors.
    When I installed the video card and booted up the system, it would not fully boot.
    I know I probably have to install the drivers for the video card before time, since it seems like Fedora doesn't recognize it.
    Pretty simple question I'm sure.
    How do I install the driver?

    That depends entirely on what kind of card you have. Is it an ATI, Nvidia, SiS, Matrox, what?

    you have to install ATI drivers. check these links for instructions. Link1 Link2.

    if Fedora is not booting up right now, boot up in command line mode and set Video Driver to "vesa" in xorg.conf file. it will fix boot up and Graphics problem. install ATI drivers after that.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
