== Introduction ==
+
__TOC__
  
<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.

To avoid having the open source Radeon drivers automatically load and ruin your day, create a blacklist file as follows:
+
Cool!
 
+
{{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 ===
+
=== Special Characters ===
  
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.

Then, add the following to <code>/etc/portage/package.use</code> if you would like to enable support for AMD Catalyst Control Center:

== Installing ==
+
=== how to talk pages ===
 
+
=== 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
+
}}
+

+
we need a section explaining how to indent for step2 of talk threads
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.
