No it won't.
I just updated the system from F8T3 to the current rawhide set
kernel), rebooted and then `yum install kmod-fglrx`. after rebooting
that the xorg.conf got built by the livna stuff, I did a startx
got the same result as the vesa driver, i.e., locked system and black
The fglrx driver, 8.42.3 I believe, won't work with current F8/rawhide
as it doesn't support the 2.6.23 kernel. There should be another
release this month that should support it then (don't quote me on this
but this is what I have heard).
So you are stuck using the vesa driver, or you can wait and at least try
the radeonhd driver as well.
