Hello,I have tried to install opengl on fedora 17, everything seemed just right since I used startx on the terminal and then the following errors appeared:

serverauth.1060 does not exist

Xauthority does not exist

FATAL: Module fglrx not found.

       Fatal server error:

                   no screens found

Server terminated with error (1). Closing log file.

xinit: giving up

xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused

xinit: server error

What shall I do?

When you say "Install OpenGL", do you mean you installed the ATI drivers? If yes, please update your question with exactly what steps you followed. Thanks.

yum install mesa-tri-drivers mesa-libGL xorg-x11-drv-ati

yum update kernel

yum--nogpgcheck install

yum install akmod-catalyst xorg-x11drv-catalyst xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-libs.i686

mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r) -radeon.img

dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

I've just added the lines I wrote on the terminal

It's quite possible that the latest fglrx drivers do not work with the version of Xorg in Fedora 17. It might be helpful to see more of the errors in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.

Fedora 17 isn't supported any more, so it's unlikely that it'll ever have a version of Xorg that will work with the latest fglrx drivers.
