<code>ati-drivers-14.9-r1</code> has been added to the Funtoo Portage tree which contains a special Ubuntu-only release of the drivers that are compatible with {{Package|x11-base/xorg-server}} version 1.16. If you are using the "stock" drivers, then typically, you would need to mask <code>xorg-server</code> as follows. This is not necessary with 14.9-r1:
+
== Use Flags ==
 
+
{{#arraymaptemplate:{{#external_value:use}}|ExternUse|,|}}
Add the following to <code>/etc/portage/package.mask</code>:
+
 
+
{{File|name=/etc/portage/package.mask|body=
+
>=x11-base/xorg-server-1.16
+
 
}}
 
}}
 
+
</div><div class="col-xs-12 col-md-9 col-md-pull-3">
If X is already installed, force it to downgrade by typing:
+
<div id="ebuild_header"><div id="ebuild_logo" style="padding-bottom: 1em;">[[File:ebuild.png|link=|frameless|class=img-responsive]]</div><div id="ebuild_title">
 
+
= {{PAGENAME}} =
<console>
+
</div></div>
# ##i##emerge -auDN world
+
</includeonly>
</console>
+
 
+
A few packages will downgrade, and you'll be ready to go.
+
 
+
=== 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>
+
=== Editing package.use ===
+
 
+
Then, add the following to <code>/etc/portage/package.use</code>:
+
<console>
+
###i## nano /etc/portage/package.use
+
x11-drivers/ati-drivers qt4
+
</console>
+
{{note|Feel free to add or remove use flags as you see fit. For example, if you do not want amdcccle support, remove the qt4 use flag.}}
+
== Installing ==
+
 
+
=== Emerging the package ===
+
To emerge the drivers, run the following command:
+
<console>
+
###i## emerge -av --changed-use --deep @world
+
</console>
+
 
+
== 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 ===
+
Try running compton with the following switches:
+
<console>
+
###i## compton --backend glx --vsync none --paint-on-overlay
+
</console>
