ATI commercial driver is included in commercial editions (Mandriva Linux Discovery, Mandriva Linux Powerpack, Mandriva Linux Powerpack+) 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 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 Mandriva Wiki for more instructions on installing packages.

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. Note that aticonfig utility is not currently available in official packages: if you need it, use PLF driver as instructed below.

Installation from PLF third party repository

Set up PLF non-free repository on your system. Use Easy URPMI or Smart URPMI to generate an urpmi.addmedia command to run at a console as root. See Mandriva Wiki for more instructions on running commands as root.

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 Mandriva Wiki for more instructions on installing packages.

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 ATI installer (not recommended: use only if you cannot use the above methods)

First of all, you have to install kernel sources:

$ su
# urpmi kernel-source

Then, download ati installer and launch it:

# chmod +x ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run
# ./ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run

Follow the instructions.
