== 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 ===
 
{{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) --->
 
}}
 
 
{{fancynote| 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>
 
# ##i##nano /etc/make.conf
 
VIDEO_CARDS="fglrx"
 
</console>
 
 
=== Editing package.use ===
 
 
Then, add the following to <code>/etc/portage/package.use</code>:
 
<console>
 
###i## nano /etc/portage/package.use
 
x11-drivers/ati-drivers qt4
 
</console>
 
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:
 
<console>
 
###i## emerge -av --changed-use --deep @world
 
</console>
 
 
== Configuring ==
 
 
Next, set ati-drivers to manage the system's OpenGL implementation:
 
<console>
 
###i## eselect opengl set ati
 
</console>
 
 
Afterwards, run <tt>aticonfig</tt> to modify the X-server configuration file to work with the ati-drivers:
 
<console>
 
###i## aticonfig --initial
 
</console>
 
 
== 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.
 
 
=== 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.
