[[Category:NeedsUpdating]]ATI drivers are commercial driver is included in commercial releaseedition and in the freely downloadable Mandriva Linux One live / install CD edition. Following instructions concern installation 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 the free releaseofficial 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 '''N.B.''' From 2008 Spring the driver package has been renamed, replacing "ati" with ATI installer =="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 of all, you have to download ati driver/installer and launch it with the parameter that ask for the RPM creation. Then install kernel sources the built RPMS :
# su$ suchmod x$ ./ --buildpkg Mandriva/2008.1# $ urpmi kernel-source*fglrx*.rpm
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 :
# chmod +x
# ./
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
== Installation with Mandriva 2006 PLF Packages ==<b>DKMS error during installation: </b>
NoteIf 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: Thats are If you do not Official Mandriva fglrx RPMSdownload it, it works perfekt on my machineXV will not work (use "xvinfo" for check).
<!-- Dead link alert...
First you must add PLF non-free repository. Use [ easyurpmi] for example. Then, install the driver with this command.<preb># urpmi ati-xorg dkms-ati</pre>You can now choose fglrx driver for your card with the Mandriva drakx11 tool<pre># drakx11Slightly more information to be found here: </preb>
== Configuration =="3D Acceleration for ATI cards (works for SuSE, Mandriva and Debian)" at
