why flagging ood, lol?

- using kolasa's patch to cover 3.19 kernel support

you are the first one asking for embedded version :)
Chances to see this soon are very small, mainly because i don't have that much time atm, also i don't have hardware to test it well. But i'm not saying no.
Just now its not the best time.
If you don't want to wait - feel free to take this code and upload new embedded driver

thanks for this great pkg!

I just setup the Gizmo 2 development board based on AMD G-Series with it and have tear-free fluid video decoding now:)
I had to modify the driver source though to the embedded driver:
obtained from

any chance of seeing a new catalyst-embedded package?

xserver 1.17 renders nasty segfault.
For now you can use [xorg116] repo:

# uncomment one server from the list below:
#Server =$arch
#Server =$arch
#Server =$arch

I just came into this:

│ error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
│ :: catalyst-total: requires xorg-server<1.17.0

because Xorg X server wants to update its version to 1.17.1-1

Just got it working.... kernel setting 'nomodeset' is fundamental, while radeon driver doesn't work anymore with it, fglrx is kickin ass... package is fine.

With catalyst-total or catalyst-test, the Xorg 1.16.3-2 fails at startup with error "(EE) fglrx(0): failed to map MMIO register space!".

I have also tried to downgrade xorg-server to 1.15, and it worked with catalyst-test, while the fps rate at Dota 2 was like 10 (same speed as with 'radeon' driver), no matter the resolution/quality selected. With v-sync disabled on amdcccle, fps was like 15.
Using fglrx, xorg would aways crash upon quitting it, the screen froze in bizarre colors...

Is there a solution? 10 fps in dota2 is just normal for the HD5450?

quote from bar and grill:
I can see that git version already have this patch included (as well as other fixes). Can some pxp user check if xf86-video-intel-git works fine on their systems with xserver 1.16 installed? You can get this pkg from AUR or from the [mesa-git] repo or you can use mine if you want[1], i built it minutes ago for x86_64.

silent update, no pkg rel bump: added catalyst-libgl, opencl-catalyst, lib32-catalyst-libgl and lib32-opencl-catalyst into provides array to satisfy libva-xvba-driver (and maybe other that will come in the future) deps

Looks fine. After X crash you can:
- log in via ssh (if you enabled it) to your host and paste /var/log/Xorg.0.log on some pastebin service;
- run your system in single user mode:
and paste /var/log/Xorg.0.log on some pastebin service
