The Simplest way of installing ATI Catalyst driver In Cent OS 6 ( RHEL 6)

Ok Now you might be wondering why this topic, and why this late? Just Recently i had to set up a Cent OS installation on an aged machine having a ATI Radeon Card. While the open-source radeon driver ( no gallium 3d on cent os, i honestly dont know how to set up one, if you can help me on this, it would be great ) did give me a properly setup display, the video performance was just terrible. So Catalyst ( fglrx) it had to be. If you are in the same position as me, then worry not. The method given below requires no blacklisting, no mod-probing and no conf madness. Here we go.

  1. First make sure your system is up-to-date. Run a upgrade 
    yum upgrade
   2.  You will have to enable a third party repository. Don't worry this is simple.
        Just execute the following command.
rpm -Uvh http://elrepo.org/elrepo-release-6-4.el6.elrepo.noarch.rpm (external link)
   3.  Now that the repository has been added, it is time to install the required
        Packages.

yum install kmod-fglrx fglrx-x11-drv
   4. With this, the driver installation is complete. Now all that remains is to
       tell X server to use the new driver.
aticonfig --initial
   5. Thats it. Just reboot and enjoy your new driver.

  3. Remember, it's not only the name which makes the impression, it does not take look and quality, but it is best to buy from the maker that has experience in producing a certain sort of watch. If you have a heavy, large wrist and a sizable hand, you're easily able to
    put on the bulkier chronograph and bezel styles made by companies including Tag Heuer.
    The gold accents, slightly quirky feel, and durable
    rubber links put a touch in the old school charm
    in this new school timepiece.
