How to re-build the ATI drivers on Fedora 20 after upgrading the kernel.

I recently updated to a new kernel version and the ATI drivers were not loaded as they had not been built for that kernel. I had to re-compile the ATI drivers, so I switched to the root user and navigated to this folder.

[[email protected] homer]# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/build_mod/

Then I ran this command to build the kernel modules.

[[email protected] build_mod]# ./make.sh

Once the compilation was done I had to then navigate to another folder to complete the build.

[[email protected] ~]# cd /lib/modules/fglrx/

Then run the ./make_install.sh script to complete the installation.

[[email protected] ~]# ./make_install.sh

Once the driver installation has succeeded, logout and then log back in to the graphical environment. This is all I had to do to get my accelerated desktop working again.
