What's your graphics card? About copying control file - from which catalyst release are you taking it?

Please keep updating this package! I need it for gaming, and I can assist you in testing. It works fine, save for a few things. SuperTuxKart does not start and I can't get rid of the AMD Unsupported hardware logo. When I try to fix it using the common fix around the Internet that you should replace the content of a certain file with some other binary looking code, I can't get X to run anymore, it gives error messages upon startup. Reinstalling Catalyst works again.

I added 4.7 kernel patch

Don't have supported hw, can only tell that it's compiling well

Can someone confirm if its working fine? - This is my showstopper from updating oldie hd234k repo... Pretty please

Ah yes, the "custom kernel" section of the wiki... is kinda old and geeky I would say. Leave it.

Just install this (catalyst-total-hd234k) package and dependencies (like dkms) and it will do the job. As I mentioned earlier DKMS will try to compile fglrx module, whenever it's needed

As for catalyst-utils - it is a component of this package, as noted in description and "Provides" table. But in fact wiki is wrong about it, catalyst-utils is not needed to compile the kernel module. Without catalyst-utils catalyst won't work at all, but you can compile module without it. You just need something like catalyst-dkms (it's also part of this package) which provides sources, lib and instructions to perform compilation.

The page on the AUR wiki mentions that I need catalyst-utils to compile catalyst on a custom kernel, and that catalyst-utils is not supported by the 234k branch. What do I need to do to compile it on the 234k branch?

What is the reason of changing deps? Do you want to remove linux? Sure you can, but keep in mind that there's always some probability that linux-zen will fail in some way, and by keeping standard linux you will leave yourself an easier way to access/fix your system then.

Just install linux-zen, check if fglrx module compiles on it, add zen to bootloader, reboot to zen and run some GL app/game :) - imho this is the easiest way of testing zen+fglrx combo

BTW just in case: you may have as many kernels as you want, ARCH won't add kernel automatically to the bootloader (at least my doesnt do that)), DKMS will try to build fglrx module for every present kernel, don't forget to install kernel headers

My card is supported by this driver. I can test it for you, because I hope that catalyst-total-hd234k and linux-zen work together efficiently. What can I do in order to test it? I think about installing linux-zen, modifying the PKGBUILD of catalyst-total-hd234k so that linux-zen is a dependency instead of linux, and then making and installing

Vi0L0 commented on 2016-07-25 17:57

I'm unable to perform actuall test as my card (290x) isn't supported by this driver.
I can only tell that fglrx module get compiled on 4.6.4-zen.

I can not guarantee that it will work with future release of zen kernel (neither the big one like 4.7, or smaller like 4.6.7), and that's why I would like to avoid such a dependency.

Megameneer commented on 2016-07-22 18:25

Does this package work with linux-zen? If so, could you add linux-zen to the list of possible dependencies?

I believe good knowledge of assembly language and a lot of time since amd libs are already compiled and we don't have access to the source code :)

My assembly knowledge is far from good, I won't be able to help you with this :(.
Also I'm not sure about the reward, at least not material one ;)
On the other hand there's a chance that many pregcn users of whole Linux community would thank you for this :)
