ATI commercial driver is included in commercial edition and in the freely downloadable Mandriva Linux One 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.

N.B. From 2008 Spring the driver package has been renamed, replacing "ati" with "fglrx". e.g. dkms-fglrx

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 from RPMS built from the ATI installer (use only if you need a driver more recent than PLF backports)

First, download ati driver/installer and launch it with the parameter that ask for the RPM creation. Then install the built RPMS :

# su
$ chmod x ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run
$ ./ati-driver-installer-X.X.X.run --buildpkg Mandriva/2008.1
$ urpmi *fglrx*.rpm

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:

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

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

DKMS error during installation:

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).
