I really hope the drivers work. I am really liking Fedora so far. My favorite distro yet.

Fedora does not use sudo by default. See my Linux Software Guide for how to become root, and how to install Flash.

The one thing I've learned with Linux is that it's best with one step or more behind the newest hardware.
I'm sure the nvidia drivers will work with the 560, maybe not up to par. Generally they have support in the drivers unofficially before they even release a card.

The GTX 560 is supported, at least by the beta. =P Nvidia is really good at pushing driver support, especially for us FOSS users.

I used to have a 470. I regret selling it so much.

That's one thing I don't really like too much about it, because I like having new stuff. I can't wait for Linux to get the driver support it deserves. I think the average computer user would like KDE or Gnome 10x more than Aero. When I saw Gnome, it blew me away. I don't know what I love about KDE so much, though.

Yeah, I found that out. >.<
Thanks for the guide, though. I'll definitely be reading it.

Having some driver support is a million times better than having no driver support.

I wonder if I could call AMD or XFX to see what they'll say about the drivers not working. lol.

KDE has more effects hands down, and a few more services too. ATM I use it more, mainly because I built it from source. =P I'll continue to do so because it's easier to build from source. The gnome git is messy as hell. =(

Wish I had come in sooner. Seems you have the same feeling as I do, avoid ATi for now to avoid the drivers issue.

I tried to scan the whole thread, but may have missed something. Is this about right: your video driver stopped working after doing something?

If you need other Fedora tips, just ask, or take a look at the myguides for Fedora in my sig. I don't think the linux chrome/chromium ship with flash. Have to install flash-plugin manually.

We also have cookies, so don't believe the Debian side when they say we don't.

LIES!!! Would Debian ever lie?

Yeah, that about sums it up except he never had working video with the new Radeon cards. Apparently 6XXX support still isn't working right.

1) Yes, I am definitely not buying AMD/ATI, at least for non-gaming rigs.
2) When I installed the 11.2 drivers (fgrlx), when booting, it gets stuck on this screen:

3) Okay, thanks. It says it does, but in previous installs, flash only worked a few times. So how would I go about doing that?
4) I only like chocolate chip cookies, and only when they're fresh out of the oven, warm and oozy. Yum.

Just download from the mozilla website.

32bit:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ (there is another link but OSX is being....)
64bit:
http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flas...10_square.html

Download the linux version, get the tar.gz and extract it to ~/.mozilla/plugins

You can also get the rpm from them too, I personally like it in ~/.mozilla/plugins

Wait...why are you using Fedora 12? 14 came out a month ago I thought.

And now I'm trying to figure out how I got flash working because I did nothing besides install chromium.

We're here for you though Bass.

PS: Slackware has cake. Though you do have to make it yourself.

It was probably installed via the package manager. Most distributions come with something that installs flash, like "unofficial" software or something. Or maybe "restricted", I think that's ubuntu, that you have to enable.
