i'm working on it. Unfortunatelly it's not that easy mainly because of:
- pacman's conflicts - this powerXpress support = linking /usr/lib/ to /usr/lib/fglrx/ OR to /usr/lib/, where is from libgl package. Same thing for libglx. I still don't know how to solve updating libgl package after updating catalyst's packages - guess that user will have to remove link /usr/lib/ before update. Same thing for libglx. I can add such remove into catalyst_build_module script, but user will have to manually run it before libgl update.
- hardcoded /usr/lib64 path (instead of our /usr/lib) into aticonfig binary, it was easier to debug in 11.4 - with 11.5 it's much harder and i don't want to break something so i will probably add aticonfig's funcionality into catalyst_build_module script.

Any help or ideas are more than welcome :)

Vi0L0, as far as I know, the ATI installer now is more friendly towards switching cards. Could you please make the PKGBUILD such that it can be installed alongside normal libgl to allow for switching between libGL from xorg and ATI?

updated to 11.5-2:
now if you got x86_64 it will check is [multilib] repo uncommented in /etc/pacman.conf and if it is - it will add lib32-catalyst-utils to the package.
If it's not uncommented - it won't add lib32-catalyst-utils.

It surelly is working with makepkg, i will check it with yaourt later

can some yaourt user tell me is it working fine for him?

updated to 11.5

lib32-catalyst-utils will be added to the package ONLY for x86_64, ofcourse.
If you got x86_64 please uncomment [multilib] repository in /etc/pacman.conf file so it could work.

If you got x86_64 system but you aren't using [multilib] and don't want lib32-catalyst-utils to be added - comment lines 26-29 of PKGBUILD

I will take that one :)
It should be updated later this evening or tomorrow...
