Fedora has never included fglrx (a.k.a. Catalyst), but it has usually
been available in 3rd party repositories, like RPM Fusion non-free.

AFAIK recent fglrx/Catalyst versions do not support any of the X1200
cards anymore.

Fedora 12's default driver should have hw opengl support and other
goodies for it, out of the box.

OK thanks for the info but running glxgears gives an averave of 200FPS,
is it the maximun ?

Another problem: X cannot resume after suspend. Is there a special
config to have suspend available with this default driver?

Thanks for attention.

If sounds as if ony software 3D is working on your board. You can
run "glxinfo" and look for the line starting "OpenGL renderer string"
to find out.

I'm afraid the graphics drivers in F12, especially with respect to 3D
support is very dodgy at the moment and does not look likely to improve
in the short term. You can try modifying the driver options in
/etc/X11/xorg.conf. The F12 release notes in a section under ATI give
some possible options to try.
Also adding "nomodeset" to the kernel boot line in /etc/grub.conf
can sometimes help with particular graphics cards to get around the
numerous bugs.
