Proposed Changes to AMD64 Handbook

This is a handbook guide submission for the video_cards section of "Installing the Gentoo base system"


The VIDEO_CARDS USE_EXPAND variable should be configured appropriately depending on the available GPU(s). Setting VIDEO_CARDS is not required for a console only install.

Below is an example of a properly set VIDEO_CARDS variable. Substitute the name of the driver(s) to be used.

FILE /etc/portage/make.conf
VIDEO_CARDS="amdgpu radeonsi"

Details for your GPU(s) can be found at the AMDGPU, Intel, Nouveau (Open Source) , or NVIDIA (Proprietary) articles.
