@R4v3nPr0 For me it seems that GDM just needs a very up-to-date version of mutter.
I’m successfully using GNOME+GDM with catalyst-test, cogl from the catalyst-stable repo, xorg117 and

Maybe Vi0L0 can update the mutter package in catalyst-stable.

In addition to installing Xorg 1.14, did you do anything else to make the GNOME desktop environment and GDM work?

I have just begun playing around with it though. Let you know how it goes.

I was having problems with gdm for a long time, it would be best to switch to other desktop manager.
As for a gnome it should work with my patched packages - cogl, mutter and imagemagick-nocl. There are not on the aur, only the repo (catalyst repo, you will find it on wiki) , but if you want sources I can give u them.

Thanks for the help.

One last thing though I can't seem to use catalyst-test with gnome. Xorg segfaults and GDM won't show up. Any ideas on how I can use Gnome with catslyst?.

you mean mesa-noglvnd, right? you can edit ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf
and add line:
keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve

my file also has:
keyserver hkp://

or you can build mesa-noglvnd with makepkg and it's --skippgpcheck option

Thanks, I'll try that. When I try to install it I get a mesa-libglvnd pgp error. How do I fix this?. Won't let me proceed.

Sure, just rename linux to linux-lts
and linux-headers to linux-lts-headers
in depends array @ PKGBUILD file

I wanted to install catalyst-test with the 4.9 lts kernel, but it tries to push me to 4.11 is there a way to use catalyst-test with 4.9 lts?
