A hostname is a unique name created to identify a machine on a network. In computer networking, a hostname  is a label that is assigned to a device connected to a computer network and that is used to identify the device in various forms of electronic communication such as the World Wide Web, e-mail or Usenet. Hostnames may be simple names consisting of a single word or phrase, or they may be structured.

== 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>
 
<console>
# ##i##nano /etc/make.conf
+
localhost # ##i## Hello :)
VIDEO_CARDS="fglrx"
+
 
</console>
 
</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]]}}
 
 
=== Multi-Head Display ===
 
 
To enable a multi-head display, you'll need to use the Catalyst Control Center {{c|amdcccle}} GUI configuration tool, which is enabled by the {{c|qt4}} USE variable.
 
 
Open up a graphical terminal, and become root by typing {{c|su -}} -- your user will need to be in the {{c|wheel}} group to do this:
 
 
{{console|body=
 
$ ##i##su -
 
Password: ##i##*******
 
# source /etc/profile
 
# amdcccle
 
}}
 
 
[[File:amdcccle.png|class=img-responsive|center]]
 
Navigate to Display Manager, and choose the option {{c|Multi-display desktop with display(s) X}} for each display. Then, drag and drop the blue displays to arrange them to match how they are arranged in front of you. Click {{c|OK}}. The Catalyst Control Center will tell you that you will need to restart your system for the changes to take effect. Simply log out if you are running {{c|xdm}}, or end your X session, and start it up again. You should now have a fully-functioning multi-head display.
 
 
== 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 will need to restart your X session for the changes to take effect. If you are using a display manager, logging out and back in again should cause the new settings to be visible.
 
 
=== 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>

Introduction

A hostname is a unique name created to identify a machine on a network. In computer networking, a hostname is a label that is assigned to a device connected to a computer network and that is used to identify the device in various forms of electronic communication such as the World Wide Web, e-mail or Usenet. Hostnames may be simple names consisting of a single word or phrase, or they may be structured.

Configuration

In Funtoo Linux, /etc/conf.d/hostname is the master configuration file for setting a hostname. In OpenRC framework /etc/conf.d/foo is the configuration file for a corresponding Init script /etc/init.d/foo. With the case of hostname, default value is set to localhost, means when system boots and OpenRC's /etc/init.d/hostname script started a hostname getting only localhost name. How it looks? In your shell promt this will look in following way, an example for root:

localhost #  Hello :)
