I've been unable to get it to build the fglrx module for the linux-grsec kernel, here's the log I keep getting when it attempts to build:

==> dkms install -m fglrx -v 15.9 -k
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/fglrx/15.9/build/make.log for more information.

I have it running without issue with the vanilla linux kernel and linux-zen.

Am I missing something for building the module for linux-grsec? I do have the appropriate headers installed as well.

I'm on a carrizo based laptop, the open-source drivers are horrible with my chipset I've been getting the best performance out of the proprietary catalyst driver.

thanks, silently changed

There seem to be non-UTF8 characters in the contributors' names in the PKGBUILD. Can those characters be changed/removed? They are breaking AUR helpers. Specifically the ü at position 1073.

Whith the opensource driver, the problem is that some cards does not work that well. And it's difficult to be sure until you tested. The later cards works pretty fine with "normal" games. Which model you can check on the wiki.

I have been experiencing the opensource driver for a while now and do not find any fluctuation. Sometimes I get glitches. But I had actually worse with the catalyst blob. So ... a bit less performance but much better compatibility and very easier update process xD

Am playing on linux, but my games does not demand that much ... so I can't tell for AAA games.

pre-GCN was dropped in later catalyst release, 5xxx should work just fine with this catalyst-total one.
Even in newer releases it's good to check out if its really not working, and if its not take (IIRC) /etc/ati/control file from catalyst 15.9 version and overwrite newer one with it.

I know this is late but I haven't felt like trying again up to this point. Are all 5XXX devices just not supported anymore? What version should I look for if I want support? hd234k? I think this information should find it's way into the OP because the error itself doesn't present itself until its already installed and fucked up everything to the point where it would just be easier to reinstall

I want to use the open source drivers but I want a replacement for Windows entirely and while it does just work it gives me terrible performance. Even after turning off vsync, no matter what I do the opensource drivers will fluctuate in framerate rapidly. I know it is not a problem with my card because it will fluctuate at 60 fps down to 50, yet will allow me to raise my FPS to even 250 and fluctuate down to only 140ish which is playable but this isn't an option in most games

You will need to downgrade your xorg-server

How can I install this package without compatible xorg-server?

Neije commented on 2016-02-29 21:32

If I'm not mistaking your card is not supported anymore by catalyst. Just use the opensource driver ... or you must use and older version of catalyst+xorg.

But the opensource driver just works.

I am using an HD 5870 and this will not install on my system. First off I installed through the repositories, though the files should be the same. It gives an error saying my card is not supported. I don't remember the error message, I may try reinstalling again for debug info in the forums, but I figured this should be mentioned here since this is where I read that my card should still work with it in the first place.

Also this package will mess with your BIOS configuration and try overclocking your card among other changes without any user intervention so be warned.

@lordmocha If you're using the Catalyst drivers, be prepared to pretty much always be at least one version behind on both and Linux kernel. The Catalyst drivers simply won't work on the newest releases due to the way AMD builds them.
