- added 4.4 kernel support

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-12-13 20:00

just like commit says:
- adding new patch from crimson
- removing gcc49 dependency
- adding initial grsec kernel support

should be safe to remove gcc49 pkg :)

updated to 15.9
4.2 kernel is in [core] and we still don't have support for it.
So for now please use linux-lts kernel.

be aware that I removed linux from dependency array and so it will let linux to update (while it's not supported tongue), if you will not configure bootloader to use kernel older than 4.2, like linux-lts, it will probably boot linux and you will probably gonna see a freeze or blank screen. System should work though, you can ssh to it and config bootloader from here, or use single mode if you can't ssh, or well there's possibility that linux-lts was added before, boot it and config as default kernel to boot.

updated to 15.5-1 - AKA "nothing interesting":
- it doesn't support xserver 1.17
- looks older than ubuntu vivid driver which we are using ie in catalyst-test@AUR
- i've added initial support for 4.1 kernel (using kolasa's patch, tested on 4.1rc5)
- rel notes:

- 4.0 kernel support (thanks to kolasa for patch)

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-03-08 13:37

- using kolasa's patch to cover 3.19 kernel support

updated to 14.9-1:
- official, stable release

- it doesn't support xserver 1.16

- I added my fresh patch for kernel 3.17 rc6.
Notes about the patch:
1. it probably wont work on 3.17 kernels older than rc6 because I don't know how to tell preprocessor about rc version :P
2. im unable to test resume/suspend
3. im not the developer, just pressing random keys :P so the patch could be less/more noobish :-)

14.4-21: added dirty GPL-licensing solution - fglrx_gpl_symbol.patch - workaround for compilation error for i686 on 3.16.1 kernel

Thank You.
Yes, I also think it's great, many people worked on this before it get current shape.
I did promoted it many times, but it never get as much people's attention as the -hook. Well...I never presented it on a TV - that could be the reason of why my promotion was unsuccessful ;)

This packages is currently the most sensible way to manually install and upgrade Catalyst drivers, and the wiki seems to agree with me ( This package should be promoted more.

You've done a great job with this. Thank you.
