hi all LinuxSolved members..i found this solution for who have a problem with ati card in fedora core 5+..you must try this:

first you must go to http://rpm.livna.org and download livna rpm package that related to you fedora.

then install your package with command like below:

su -c rpm -Uvh <livna rpm package>

test livna configuration with this:

From a shell, run yum info xmms-mp3 if you get an error, livna is not configured properly..try configure again.

if no error so go on..then type this:

su -c 'yum install xorg-x11-drv-fglrx kmod-fglrx glx-utils'

logout of your current session..Once the X-server restarts, log back in..open terminal again and test to verify it working properly or not..type this:

su -c 'glxinfo | grep direct'

If the response is "direct rendering: Yes" you are good to go. If not, a reboot may be required for the full effect of the module to be realized on some machines.

Make sure you are actually using the fglrx libGL.so. note: /usr/lib64 for x86_64 users only.Check against the following output:

ldd /usr/bin/glxinfo | grep libGL
         libGL.so.1 => /usr/lib/fglrx/libGL.so.1 (0x00548000)
         libGLU.so.1 => /usr/lib/libGLU.so.1 (0x00110000)

if output like above its working properly..

Hi Kouji, it is very nice practice to help others by sharing solutions. I am moving to "How to Section". Hope it will help others in future.
I guess your card was ATI Radeon 2600 pro as you stated in other thread.
