|Summary=Accelerated ATI/AMD binary drivers for Radeon HD 5000 and newer chipsets.

== 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 ==
=== Configuring the 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) --->
{{fancynote| 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
Adding the <code>qt4</code> USE flag enables support for building of <tt>amdcccle</tt> (AMD Catalyst Control Center: Linux Edition).
== 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 implementation:
###i## eselect opengl set ati
Afterwards, run <tt>aticonfig</tt> 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.
