Can't Install Ati Drivers

Postby zZGz » Fri Aug 12, 2011 0:30

So I'm looking at this and it's telling me to type these commands in as super user, but when I type
Code: Select all
emerge sabayon-sources -pv
I just get this error...
Code: Select all
gordon@Gordon-Aspire5532 ~ $ su
Password:
Gordon-Aspire5532 gordon # emerge sabayon-sources -pv

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "sabayon-sources".

emerge: searching for similar names...
emerge: Maybe you meant any of these: app-misc/sabayon-mce, app-misc/sabayon-skel, app-misc/sabayon-music?
Gordon-Aspire5532 gordon #

Can anyone help me? Thanks.

@genfool

Do I have to recompile me kernel still or can I just install ati-drivers and reboot?

No need to recompile the kernel .... maybe.
First question is, did they ever work? why do you need to install them, did you get a kernel update and they no longer work?

Or is this after the first boot of a fresh install and do not work.
I really have no info on what the real issue is.
You can emerge them, but would include a few more steps.
equo install ati-drivers
will do the trick, but then again, you should already have them unless you changed kernels, or you have another issue.
Need more info, what card do you have, what makes you install the drivers.

Just pointing out to not use emerge unless you know the steps to safely mix portage and entropy.
Keeping a clean entropy install will go a long ways for stability, and will get the same drivers available in portage.

Alright. So I just did a fresh install and I like to play games so I want to get the official drivers so I can run my games faster than the open source drivers. It's a completely fresh install, no updates or anything.

Radeon 3300
1.6 Ghz, 64 bit processor (AMD64)
3 GB Ram
160 GB HD Space
Sabayon 6.

I - hope - that's enough information. Sorry for not posting it upfront. :oops:
