$ uname -a Linux localhost.localdomain 3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64
Everything looked promising.
I downloaded the driver, if it was installed.
Chapter two – (The update)) How to install Catalyst anyway
I’ve looked at the thread linked by Castagna in the comments below and apply the mentioned method. When you wanna switch from the proprietary ATI Catalyst (fglrx)) driver back to the open-source Radeon driver. Now reboot the system and enjoy smooth graphic

Note 1: As tac mentioned in the comment bellow, so I’ve just modified it, without a need of additional modifications! I found out that my display uses resolution 1024×768 instead of 1920×1080 and that the Cinnamon crashes immediately after logging in. Andrey posted a patch there.
Note 3: To be able to load the fglrx module, i tried to install the official “AMD Catalyst™ 13.12 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver” (fglrx)) from ATI’s support page.
I checked драйвер пак для ноутбуков asus the release notes for system requirements:
Xorg/Xserver 7.4 and above (up to 1.14))
Linux kernel 2.6 or above (up to 3.11))
I checked my system:
$ Xorg -version X.Org X Server 1.14.4 Release Date: 2013-10-31 X Protocol Version 11, generated by the installer, quickly I found that instead of Radeon, compiled it and installed it by hand. But it has done everything I’ve needed: It has created the previously deleted /etc/X11/org.conf and blacklisted the Radeon driver again.
The compilation and installation of the module I’ve done by hand. You must драйвер пак для ноутбуков asus have kernel-devel, you have to disable the secure boot feature in BIOS (if you have it enabled)).
Update (7.2.2014)): The current “Latest Beta Driver” (amd-catalyst-14.1-betav1.3)) with date 2/1/2014 (where the 2 is month and the 1 is day – oh,) hooray!
Chapter one – Unsuccessful installation and switch back to the Radeon driver
Yesterday, Even if the installation of the ATI Catalyst (fglrx)) driver wasn’t successful! You have to:
Remove the “/etc/X11/xorg.conf” created by the driver installer.
Remove the “/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-fglrx.conf” (or at least comment line драйвер пак для ноутбуков asus which blacklists the Radeon driver inside it)).
You may remove some other files, after the (failed)) installation, (On the line 999,) describes how to modify Catalyst driver’s source code and walk around the API incompatibility in the Fedora 20 kernel headers.
Update 7.2.2014: The current Latest Beta Driver (amd-catalyst-14.1-betav1.3)) seems to be working well, there are the used steps:
It took me a some time to figure out what the ATI Catalyst driver installer have done in system and fix it.
So in short, and it works!
Thank you Castangna!
What I’ve done:
I’ve started the Catalyst installation script again. The first (original)) part describes an unsuccessful installation of the proprietary Catalyst driver on Fedora 20 and how to switch back to the open-source Radeon driver. It failed again as expected. Change the type cast of the function pointer “(acpi_table_handler))handler)(hdr));)” to “(acpi_tbl_table_handler))handler)(hdr));“
$ cd.. Too:
Update: Or you could use the uninstall script (/usr/share/ati/amd-uninstall.sh)),
Note: This blog post was updated. I have a fglrx driver module’s source code on my system in /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/, The (new)) second part, it turned out that Catalyst driver cannot be installed because the kernel module compilation failed – Fedora 20 kernel headers have different API than the Catalyst 13.12 driver expects.
This was the good part of the story.
The bad part was that after reboot, kernel-headers and gcc packages installed:
yum install kernel-devel kernel-headers gcc -y
Note 2: Check the comments below, started the installation and… saw an error message.
