== 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 ==
=== Xorg-server compatibility ===
{{Note|The release of the 14.9-r1 driver ebuild eliminates the need to mask <code>xorg-server-1.16</code>.}}
<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:
Add the following to <code>/etc/portage/package.mask</code>:
If X is already installed, force it to downgrade by typing:
# ##i##emerge -auDN world
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.
[*] 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:}}
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>:
# ##i##nano /etc/make.conf
=== Editing package.use ===
Then, add the following to <code>/etc/portage/package.use</code>:
###i## nano /etc/portage/package.use
x11-drivers/ati-drivers qt4
{{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:
###i## emerge -av --changed-use --deep @world
== Configuring ==
Next, set ati-drivers to manage the system's OpenGL and OpenCL implementations:
###i## eselect opengl set ati
###i## eselect opencl set amd
Afterwards, run <code>aticonfig</code> to modify the X-server configuration file to work with the ati-drivers:
###i## aticonfig --initial

== 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:
# ##i##aticonfig --set-pcs-val=MCIL,DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan,0
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:
###i## compton --backend glx --vsync none --paint-on-overlay
