I have ATI Radeon 4xxx series graphics card. I tried to install catalyst 13.1 legacy drivers, but it throws an error:

rmmod: ERROR: Module drm is in use by: ttm drm_kms_helper
[Message] Kernel Module : Trying to install a precompiled kernel module.
[Message] Kernel Module : Precompiled kernel module version mismatched.
[Message] Kernel Module : Found kernel module build environment, generating kernel module now.
[Error] Kernel Module : Failed to compile kernel module - please consult readme.
[Reboot] Kernel Module : dracut

If I restart the computer after installing drivers, it hangs at the point where login prompt used to come. Also, are there any akmod-catalyst-legacy drivers for F19? There are legacy drivers for F18 in rpmfusion but couldn't find any for F19.

One of the lines you quote tells you to consult readme. Have you?

I saw that line but couldn't find readme. The installer is a single file. After installation, there is no readme file in /usr/share/ati

Thank you. I don't use ATI, so I'm not too familiar with it. One or another of guides here may be of some help: http://www.fedoraforum.org/?view=fedora_setup
