delertrocde[[Category:NeedsUpdating]]ATI commercial driver is included in commercial editions (Mandriva Linux Discovery, Mandriva Linux Powerpack, Mandriva Linux Powerpack ) edition and in the freely downloadable Mandriva Linux One hybrid live / install CD edition. Commercial driver is not included in freely downloadable Mandriva Linux Free traditional installer edition. ATI commercial driver is available from public non-free section on official mirrors for Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring and later. ATI commercial driver is available from third-party PLF repository for all currently supported Mandriva Linux releases.
== Installation from official mirrors (Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring and later) == Ensure non-free repository is set up on your system. Follow instructions at [http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Docs/Basic_tasks/Installing_and_removing_software#Making_more_applications_available Mandriva Wiki]. Using Mandriva software installation tools - either rpmdrake or urpmi - install the packages '''dkms-ati''' and '''ati''' (some other packages will probably be pulled in as dependencies). See [http://wiki.mandrivaN.com/en/Docs/Basic_tasks/Installing_and_removing_software Mandriva Wiki] for more instructions on installing packagesBRe-configure graphics card using XFdrake configuration utility (in the Mandriva Control Center, go to '''Hardware''' then '''Set up From 2008 Spring the graphical server'''). Select the proprietary driver when offered the choicepackage has been renamed, replacing "ati" with "fglrx". Restart the systeme. Note that '''aticonfig''' utility is not currently available in official packages: if you need it, use PLF driver as instructed belowg.dkms-fglrx
== Installation from PLF third party repository ==
Re-configure graphics card using XFdrake configuration utility (in the Mandriva Control Center, go to '''Hardware''' then '''Set up the graphical server'''). Select the proprietary driver when offered the choice. Restart the system.
== Installation with from RPMS built from the ATI installer (not recommended: use only if you cannot use the above methodsneed a driver more recent than PLF backports) ==
First of all, you have to download ati driver/installer and launch it with the parameter that ask for the RPM creation. Then install kernel sourcesthe built RPMS :
<pre>
# su$ suchmod x ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run$ ./ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run --buildpkg Mandriva/2008.1# $ urpmi kernel-source*fglrx*.rpm
</pre>
Then== Installation with ATI installer (not recommended: use only if you cannot use the above methods) ==Nowadays ATI supports pretty well Linux SO. The installer has a simply-to-use graphical interface so the instalation is automatic. First, download ati driver/installer and launch it:
<pre>
# chmod x ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run
# ./ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run
</pre>
Follow the instructions.After that you have to reboot the Xorg server. For that you could reboot the computer or the easiest way: Crtl+Alt+Backspace <b>DKMS error during installation: </b> If you have error in DKMS module installation for kernel (In console crash, in X server "DKMS installation failed. See ati-install.log for details"), probably you have not install "kernel-xxx-'''devel'''".So you have to download it and install it. Try also "libncurses-devel"Warning: If you do not download it, XV will not work (use "xvinfo" for check).
