Recently the (open source) [http://www.free3d.org/ radeon driver] shipped with [http://www.x.org Xorg] has improved DRI capabilities that are often sufficient for crystallographic purposes, and the need to hastle with the installation of the propriety driver has become void.

If you are experiencing problems with Coot and ATI graphic cards with rv5xx chipset on FC10, you should switch from the 'radeon' driver to 'radeonhd', for example in the following way (as root):
 +
 +
* yum install system-config-display
 +
* yum install radeonhd
 +
* system-config-display
 +
 +
Now you can conveniently change the graphic card driver via a graphical interface, then restart X windows

Unfortunately, you have to disable 3D desktop effects, otherwise you get a blank screen and have to undo the settings via terminal. Furthermore, do not try to use the proprietary ATI 'fglrx' drivers, since they made things even worse, at least in my personal experience (with an ATI Radeon X1650).
