Finally: See the next post for instructions pertinent to the latest Fedora 23 kernel (version 4.4.6-300).
So, thanks to the great community forming along this thread, it looks like I can keep some instructions up despite my lack of an AMD card on which to test them, myself. Do let me know if there should be corrections below – you’re the only way this thing can be updated now!
Thankfully, and somewhat amazingly, there is no current need for patching the driver with the latest Fedora kernel. Unfortunately, the latest Xorg server doesn’t work, so you have to downgrade to version 1.17 (Fedora 22).
Big thanks to Stenstorpstorp, who provided critical information used to create the following instructions:
- Add the following exclusion line to your /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora* files:
2. Downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg and xorg-x11-server-common to the F22 version:
$ dnf downgrade xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-server-common –-allowerasing –-releasever=22
4. Unzip the driver and install it (normally, without selecting any package generation options – if someone could provide more detail for this step, that’d be great; I haven’t seen the Crimson menu):
$ unzip radeon-crimson-15.11-15.30.1025.zip $ cd fglrx-15.30.1025/ $ ./amd-driver-installer-15.30.1025-x86.x86_64.run
5. Reboot again and things should be looking good!
