package dependency is rather clear: linux<4.11
package comes with patches for 4.10 kernel. It should work fine, not sure about switchable graphics thought - it has been long time since I saw note on this topic.

Also, if you are already using dkms it could be better to use catalyst-dkms package instead of this one.

Just be sure to switch from mesa to mesa-noglvnd, or use [catalyst]/[catalyst-stable] repo, beacuse libglvnd patches have broken catalyst's support.

New to Arch, been using Antergos to make the transition easy.
I've been trying to get my Radeon HD 8x switchable graphics card to work but it appears that the kernel is at 4.10 while the package is limited to < 4.7.
Is there anything I can do to make this work?

Is the mirror($arch) working?

Atm I'm unable to update wirephire mirror. Don't know when I will get access back.
Please use hactar mirror:
Server =$arch

Is the Catalyst repo up to date? Pacman says my current is up to date with the repo but it won't let me install linux 4.7 because of dependency conflicts.

been using 4.5 kernel since rc5 on catalyst, but decided to make some game testing before commiting 4.5 support.
There was no problems except for cs:go which generates some glitches - missing walls :), it could be used as a wallhack, literally, not sure if it is bug or a feature :P. Occures on catalyst 15.9 and 15.12, catalyst-firepro works well.
So if you dont like this bug (could be that im the only one touched by problem) use older linux 4.4 or linux-lts or mentioned catalyst-firepro

- added 4.4 kernel support

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-12-13 19:56

just like commit says:
- adding new patch from crimson
- removing gcc49 dependency
- adding initial grsec kernel support

should be safe to remove gcc49 pkg :)

updated to 15.9
4.2 kernel is in [core] and we still don't have support for it.
So for now please use linux-lts kernel.

be aware that I removed linux from dependency array and so it will let linux to update (while it's not supported tongue), if you will not configure bootloader to use kernel older than 4.2, like linux-lts, it will probably boot linux and you will probably gonna see a freeze or blank screen. System should work though, you can ssh to it and config bootloader from here, or use single mode if you can't ssh, or well there's possibility that linux-lts was added before, boot it and config as default kernel to boot.
