I'm looking for the drivers for this graphics card that comes with HP compaq elite 8300.  I can't find any drivers on the HP website.  But support.amd.com leads me to download AMD Catalyst 13.1 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver (file size is 109MB).

The installation failed with the message "Your graphics adapter is not supported by this driver. Installation will not proceed".

I'm using RHEL 5.7.

Please let me know where I can download the driver file.

Thank you.

I looked at the 'package' page.  There're only 4 of them, one of them being nVidia, but there's nothing for ATI radeon.  Am I looking at the wrong place?

It's called kmod-catalyst, and there's an alternative version called akmod-catalyst.

I successfully install repos for epel, rpmfusion free and non-free.

When I run yum install kmod-catalyst I get this.  Tried akmod-catalyst, also not found.

Advice?
