From terminal or something?
After you modify /etc/default/grub, GRUB2 needs to know that new config! :alien:
Run from terminal after adding GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="radeon.modeset=0 blacklist=radeon" and then reboot.

I figured out that for some reason my grub2 folder is actually just named "grub" so I ran the command without the 2 and it updated the grub.cif, so I am rebooting now

It still the same results.

Also these are the drivers I am trying to install.
http://benchmark3d.com/amd-catalyst-12-9-beta-9-001
I tried running the file the .run file and it gave me error about not having the latest Linux kernel and is still giving me that error. I was able to install and update them on other Linux distros in the past.

I dont't know why you need and old and beta version... :shock: :shock:
Your GPU is new enough to be handled by 13.1 version.
Add, not replace options in /etc/default/grub
Code: Select all
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="[...] radeon.modeset=0 blacklist=radeon [...]"


Upgrade GRUB2 config
Code: Select all
# grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg


Install the proprietary driver for AMD/ATI based chipsets
Code: Select all
# equo i x11-drivers/ati-drivers-13.1


Select the right opengl implementation
Code: Select all
# eselect opengl set ati


Reboot and see if drivers are enabled
Code: Select all
$ glxinfo | grep -i 'OpenGL vendor string'


If not, try
Code: Select all
# /opt/ati/bin/aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf


Reboot, check again
Code: Select all
$ glxinfo | grep -i 'OpenGL vendor string'

Sorry for the late reply, something came up yesterday.
Any who, I did everything you said and got this
Code: Select all
glxinfo | grep -i 'OpenGL vendor string'
X Error of failed request:  BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  136 (ATIFGLEXTENSION)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  66 ()
  Serial number of failed request:  13
  Current serial number in output stream:  13


It still doesn't seem to be working :/

And
Code: Select all
/opt/ati/bin/aticonfig --initial --input=/etc/X11/xorg.conf

Just gives me
Code: Select all
bash: /opt/ati/bin/aticonfig: No such file or directory


I really hate Proprietary drivers.
