Welcome to the Unofficial Wiki for the AMD Linux Driver
This wiki is the place to document tips, tricks and problems related to AMD's proprietary Linux driver (a.k.a. fglrx).


Current Release: Catalyst 14.9 (history)


Keep this site up to date and useful, please update these pages.


Community Initiatives

The Linux AMD community has needed a universal area to document information regarding the proprietary AMD Linux driver. This wiki hopes to accomplish this requirement. Do you run a distribution that no one else does? Add a page and create links where they are necessary.

Besides this wiki there are two other places users can find further help and information. The first is an unofficial bug report database where users can post and track progress on driver bugs. The second is community-based user support which can be found at either the Rage3D.com Linux Drivers or DriverHeaven.net Linux Radeon Display Drivers forums.

There are of course many, many different other community resources with particular value for various vertical parts of the community. There is also the Distribution specific pages as well.

How You Can Help

This is a Wiki. You, yes YOU, have the capability to improve the value of this community resource.

Either start a new page with something that is missing or look over the Needs Updating page and help grow this resource. You can just edit in place anonymously, or you can create an account and add information as a user.

Distributions

AMD's Linux drivers explicitly permit repackaging and redistributing of the drivers. Here is a sampling of distributions that either are directly packaging AMD's Linux drivers or have community packages.

Or view all distributions.
