I am trying to install OpenGL on my Fedora.

But first I am confused with some concepts.

I am using ATI Radeon 5470 card and I downloaded the driver from the official website. Here is the link

I want to ask

Q1: is this equivalent to OpenGL?

Q2: How to uninstall the driver I have installed.

PS: I used

sh ati-driver-installer-11-11-x86.x86_64.run

in the command line. A GUI pops up and after several clicks. The driver is installed, which is quite simple.

Answer Q2 by myself:

For the second question:

There is a script installed on my system

sudo sh /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh

AFAIK they provide their own OpenGL implementation with drivers, so you should already have it installed.

You should've had another open source implementation before installing drivers though, likely Mesa.

Tip: I've never had to install OpenGL explicitly in my life.
