2013-10-03 18:18:15 -0500 answered a question How to install updated AMD Catalyst 13.1 for legacy chipsets?

The above method doesn't seem to work now. It throws some dependency errors at the step: yum downgrade xorg-x11-server* xorg-x11-drv*

Short and simple method: This approach has been taken from Giuseppe Marco Randazzo's Blog Post

Note: This method will only work for kernel <=3.9.11-200

Note: This method has been tested for a fresh install of fedora 18

Note: Make sure that you have booted into the kernel version 3.6.10-4

Steps: First download kernel-3.6.10-4.fc18.x86_64.rpm, kernel-headers-3.6.10-4.fc18.x86_64, kernel-devel-3.6.10-4.fc18.x86_64 and rpmfusion-free-release-stable

$ yum install -y kernel-3.6.10-4.fc18.x86_64.rpm kernel-headers-3.6.10-4.fc18.x86_64 kernel-devel-3.6.10-4.fc18.x86_64 rpmfusion-free-release-stable 
$ yum remove audit -y
$ yum install -y qt-x11 akmods git
$ cd /var/lib; git clone git@github.com:zeld/zrepo.git
$ echo "[zrepo]
name=zrepo Repository
baseurl=file:///var/lib/zrepo/$releasever/$basearch
gpgcheck=0
enabled=1" > /etc/yum.repos.d/zrepo.repo
$ yum remove xorg-x11-drv-* -y
$ yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="zrepo" downgrade xorg-x11-server-common-1.12.4-3.fc18.x86_64  xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.12.4-3.fc18.x86_64
$ yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="zrepo" install xorg-x11-drv-evdev xorg-x11-drv-synaptics xorg-x11-drv-catalyst-legacy akmod-catalyst-legacy
$ mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-old.img
$ dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
$ grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
$ echo "exclude=xorg-x11-server-* xorg-x11-drv-* kernel-*" >> /etc/yum.conf
$ sed -i '/^GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=\"/s/\"$/ rd.blacklist=radeon nomodeset radeon.audio=1 radeon.audio=1\"/' /etc/default/grub

2013-01-07 13:53:03 -0500 answered a question LinuxDC++ on Fedora 16

I found the exact solution and one should follow these steps:

Step 1: Download Source. http://prdownload.berlios.de/linuxdcpp/linuxdcpp-1.0.2.tar.bz2

Step 2: Install the packages required for compilation of source code.

yum install scons zlib-devel bzip2-devel openssl-devel libglade2-devel gtk2-devel gcc-c++

This will take time depending upon the number of dependencies.

Step 3: Edit the file SConstruct and add the following:

if not conf.CheckLib('X11'):
                print '\tX11 library not found'
                Exit(1)

Step 4: Compile!

scons install

This will take time depending upon your system

Step 5: Install!

Step 6: Now that linuxdcpp has been installed, I'll show you a demo.
