uhhh this is reinventing the wheel, and deprecated garbage in comparison to the radeon wiki page. it lacks video="radeon" and is potentioally hazardous & misleading.

It is a FAQ and moved from the main Gentoo site. I don't have an ATi so I can't say what needs to be updated or not. Please feel free to update the page (for instance link to the right section on the radeon wiki page) where needed. --SwifT (talk) 20:23, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
Im in favor of completely wiping the faq out and replacing it with radeon wiki in featured articles. its missing video="radeon" & insertion of firmware/microcode & embedding firmware in kernel. i only came across my first ati device with gentoo the 11th of dec 2013. its R600 series so i cant test audio over hdmi but the rest of radeon is spot on. i dont have powers over wiki links / deletion of articles / editing locked pages since im not a team member. i just roll all my contributions here as a personal note pad for what im doing next build and can easily keep wiki urls memorized rather than information contained. 2nd issue with this, i dont know how well the wiki 2 docs will go, ie importing wiki page 2 docs to update the docs.666threesixes666 (talk) 22:59, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

Rename (move)?

This article should be renamed to ATI/AMD FAQ, with ATI FAQ as a redirect. And, of course, it needs a little polishing. IMHO it could continue to inform a bit of the history of ATI and AMD graphics drivers. Luttztfz (talk) 19:32, 29 March 2018 (UTC)

I'm going to be moving some of the content into the AMD meta page (such as the driver support table, which doesn't exist elsewhere) and then mark this page for deletion. -Redstrate (talk) 22:39, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
