FGLRX / AMD Catalyst is the non-free proprietary display driver for the
ATI/AMD RadeonHD and FireGL graphics cards. As an alternative, you may try
the newest free driver xserver-xorg-video-radeon.
This driver release supports the following graphics adapter families:
AMD Radeon R9 Series, AMD Radeon R7 Series, AMD Radeon R5 Series,
A-Series AMD Radeon R7/R6/R5/R4/R3 Graphics, E-Series AMD Radeon R2 Graphics,
AMD Radeon HD 8000 Series, AMD Radeon HD 7000 Series,
AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series, and AMD Radeon HD 5000 Series.
Older models are no longer supported.
This package provides the kernel build environment and the fglrx modules,
which are necessary to have accelerated 3D support within the ATI/AMD
proprietary display driver.
This package contains the source for the fglrx kernel module for use with
module-assistant or make-kpkg or other manual build methods.
Building the kernel module has been tested up to Linux 4.2.
