don't use the testing driver, use the driver released on livna, and
install an old version of this package: xorg-x11-server-Xorg

for example this xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.8.fc6.i386.rpm
you can download it from this list of mirrors

after installed this package you can use the fglrx driver on Fedora 7.

Don't use yum to remove and install this package but use this:

rpm -Uvh xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.8.fc6.i386.rpm --oldpackage


rpm -e --nodeps  xorg-x11-server-Xorg
rpm -i xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.8.fc6.i386.rpm
