Hey,

what do you guys recommend me doing with my use flags and possibly keyword and masks/unmasks if I wanted to do a clean install on my 64 bit box & radeon R9 270 using both palsma 5 and ati-drivers? Is ~amd64 in make.conf a good idea?

Had my (stable) system working with (unmasked imprtant packages only) plasma 5 and open source driver for my video card, but I messed it up when I tried to swap to fglrx from radeon.

Any input appreciated :lol:

I don't have an answer for you, but do you remember what happened when you tried to switch from radeon to fglrx last time? I just tried it the other day and messed it up too.

Also, I'm assuming you already browsed/followed the wiki?

It really depends on your graphics hardware, but it works very well on my old RS880 chipset and open radeon driver. And fglrx is abandoned, it likely won't even get xorg-server-1.18 support anymore.

This also depends on your hardware. http://xorg.freedesktop.org/wiki/RadeonFeature/ is a good place to look, but I'm sure also https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Radeon has it covered.
