@Vi0L0 do you have a solution to the hotlinking issue of the driver installer archive?

npfeiler commented on 2018-02-25 20:06

@Vi0L0 thx. yes i also think it’s pre GCN, but the old control switch is apparently not necessary (for me), or may even be counterproductive in case of the 5770 (i believe, not tested).

It would be possible to split package the ocl runtime…

But it’s fine as it is.

@npfeiler i suspect your opencl runtime issues are related to pre-gcn architecture and so I decided to correlate 15.9 opencl libs with PKGBUILD's _old_control switch. I never noticed problems with opencl in this driver on my 290x

Vi0L0 commented on 2018-02-25 18:54

updated, also with opencl runtime from 15.9 (I added it to lib32 section as well) + uploaded

Apparently 4.15.5 introduced breaking changes. patch:

The dl is empty, link is dead, or rather: redirects due to hotlinking now.

You can download it manually here:

I don’t know if there is a new way to hotlink it or if there is another reputable location which mirrors it.

Ok, libxfont works fine now, but the driver itself (the .run file) fails to extract, says failed checksums, tried --skipchecksums (not advised) no luck, any fix?

npfeiler commented on 2018-02-18 22:24

I updated the links in the other post. (wanting to skip a few steps on pastebin backfired^^)

Thanks for providing libxfont. (i simply modified .PKGINFO in the previous package until now)

But why not put those on the AUR (and provide their binary builds in the xorg117 repo)?

Vi0L0 commented on 2018-02-18 19:38

@quicken2k: you will find updated libxfont in xorg repositories, like [xorg117] Server = , new libxfont package is basing on martadinata666's PKGBUILD:

@npfeiler: thanks and sorry but I didnt have time to look at your code earlier than now. Unfortunatelly now your links are dead, can you re-up?

@quicken2k: I will fix it soon
