== 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
+
 
}}

__NOTOC__
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.

}}
+
 
+
=== Editing make.conf ===
+
 
+
Add the following to your <code>/etc/make.conf</code>:
+
<console>
+
# ##i##nano /etc/make.conf
+
VIDEO_CARDS="fglrx"
+
</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 may need to restart your X session.
+
 
+
=== 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>
