updated to 14.502.1040-2:
added 4.2 and 4.3 kernel support

Except this package you have to install gcc49 package (fglrx won't compile on gcc > 5 on kernels >= 4.2), which you will find on AUR (long compilation time) or on the [catalyst] repo - direct links:

well... I believe the main difference is in kernel support - clean driver won't run on kernels newer than 3.17, which is now more than 1 year old.
On Arch even LTS kernel is in 4.1 version, so in other words - you won't be able to even run X.
Even if clean driver had newer kernel support i'm pretty sure that some functionalities would be missing.
Not to mention that personally I don't like when some software is creating a lot of directories and files here and there without packet manager's knowledge...

what's the difference between this package and the driver from AMD driver page ?

piratejon commented on 2015-10-08 23:42

I keep refreshing AMD website but 14.502.1040 is still the newest. I guess it only has been a couple months though =)

updated to 14.502.1040:
- it now supports xorg-server 1.16 (still no 1.17)
- it still doesn't support opengl 4.5

Soon I should add 4.2 kernel support, just give me some time, I'm still in the recovery after some medical treatement.

updated to 14.301.1019 released 2/19/2015
- not many differences from prev version, it still doesn't support oldie xserver 1.16
- added 4.0 kernel support (thanks to kolasa for patch)

piratejon commented on 2015-05-05 12:44

I hadn't seen kolasa_4.0-cr4-strn.patch, but it looks very much the same, except that his patch is also allowing pre-4.0 to compile without strnicmp, which is better =)

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-05-05 07:58

Sure mate, feel free :)
btw is your patch similar to the one from catalyst[1] - kolasa_4.0-cr4-strn.patch?


piratejon commented on 2015-05-05 04:17

I have replaced 14.301.1010 with 14.501.1003, updated to xorg-server-1.16.4-1, and booted into kernel 4.0.1-1, using only a very small patch to prepend __ to write_cr4 and read_cr4 in firegl_public.c, and replace strnicmp with strncasecmp in kcl_str.c. After doing so I get around 10 fps more in CS:S video stress test. I am pretty excited about this! Can I share my patch with you?
