== Introduction ==
 
 
<tt>x11-drivers/ati-drivers</tt> (often referred to as "<tt>fglrx</tt>", the name of its kernel module) is the proprietary, accelerated driver for AMD (ATI) graphics cards.
 
 
== Preparing to Install ==
 
 
=== Blacklist Radeon and DRM Modules ===
 
 
To avoid having the open source Radeon drivers automatically load and ruin your day, create a blacklist file as follows:
 
 
{{file|name=/etc/modprobe.d/radeon.conf|desc=Prevent open source DRM and radeon drivers from loading|body=
 
blacklist radeon
 
blacklist drm
 
 
}}
 
}}
  
=== Configuring the kernel ===

Configure the kernel as follows. Note that the Direct Rendering Manager is '''not''' enabled. It's possible to have it selected as a kernel module, but should not be built-in to your kernel.
+
 
+
{{kernelop|desc=
+
[*] Enable loadable module support
+
Processor type and features --->
+
      [*] MTRR (Memory Type Range Register) support
+
Bus options (PCI etc.) --->
+
      [*] PCI Express Port Bus Support
+
      [*] Message Signaled Interrupts (MSI and MSI-X)
+
Device Drivers --->
+
      Graphics support --->
+
            < > Direct Rendering Manager (xFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support) --->
+
}}
+
 
+
{{note|If you need support for AGP cards, enable the following kernel options:}}
+
{{kernelop|desc=
+
Device Drivers --->
+
      Graphics support --->
+
            <*> /dev/agpgart (AGP Support) --->
+
                  Select an appropriate AGP driver:
+
                  <*> AMD Opteron/Athlon64 on-CPU GART support
+
}}
+
 
+
=== Editing make.conf ===
+
 
+
Add the following to your <code>/etc/make.conf</code>:
+
<console>
+
# ##i##nano /etc/make.conf
+
VIDEO_CARDS="fglrx"
+
</console>
+
=== Enabling AMD Catalyst Control Center ===
+
 
+
Then, add the following to <code>/etc/portage/package.use</code> if you would like to enable support for AMD Catalyst Control Center:
+
<console>
+
###i## nano /etc/portage/package.use
+
x11-drivers/ati-drivers qt4
+
</console>
+
 
+
{{Note|If you are using a desktop or workstation profile, this USE flag will be enabled by default.}}
+
 
+
== Installing ==
+
 
+
=== Emerging the package ===
+
 
+
If you allready have emerged xorg-server, all you need to install the drivers is running the following command:
+
<console>
+
###i## emerge -av --changed-use --deep @world
+
</console>
+
 
+
otherwise you may install the drivers with
+
<console>
+
###i## emerge -av x11-drivers/ati-drivers
+
</console>
+
 
+
Before using the driver, ensure that the "fglrx" module has been loaded -- run {{c|modprobe fglrx}} as root  -- it should return with no error. If the module can't be found, run {{c|depmod -a}} as root -- then the modprobe command should work. If you are switching from the open source Radeon driver, then shutting down your desktop and rebooting your system (be sure to disable xdm) may be required to get the new "fglrx" module to load cleanly.
+
 
+
== Configuring ==
+
 
+
Next, set ati-drivers to manage the system's OpenGL and OpenCL implementations:
+
<console>
+
###i## eselect opengl set ati
+
###i## eselect opencl set amd
+
</console>
+
 
+
Afterwards, run <code>aticonfig</code> to modify the X-server configuration file to work with the ati-drivers:
+
<console>
+
###i## aticonfig --initial
+
</console>
+
 
+
{{tip|If you would like to have a full-resolution framebuffer with ati-drivers, check out [[uvesafb| uvesafb]]}}
+
 
+
== Troubleshooting ==
+
=== I am using a HDMI connection, and my monitor's display has a black border around it. ===
+
Disable overscan using the following command, as root:
+
 
+
<console>
+
# ##i##aticonfig --set-pcs-val=MCIL,DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan,0
+
</console>
+
 
+
You may need to restart your X session.
+
 
+
=== GNOME 3 windows only refresh when I drag them. ===
+
This is a known issue, reported in [http://bugs.funtoo.org/browse/FL-1130 Funtoo Bug 1130]. This issue has been fixed by addressing a bug in cogl -- upgrade to cogl-1.12.2-r2 to fix it.
+
  
=== Compton with backend glx does not work well with ati-drivers ===
+
Being a Linux user since around 2003, I have tinkered with many distributions, mostly using Debian GNU/Linux.
Try running compton with the following switches:
+
In March 2014 I made the switch to Funtoo as my main distribution.
<console>
+
###i## compton --backend glx --vsync none --paint-on-overlay
+
</console>

Being a Linux user since around 2003, I have tinkered with many distributions, mostly using Debian GNU/Linux. In March 2014 I made the switch to Funtoo as my main distribution.

Now going to try to participate in it.
