It's very likely, but I will be able to perform necessary tests and updates on Monday. Give me this time please.

I'm not very tech guy, but could it just work by patching it by Vi0l0's 4.7-arch-cpu_has_pge.patch from the catalyst-test aur package?

Any clues welcome.

Today I tried updating my system and got this:

$ yaourt -Syua
:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: catalyst-total: installing linux (4.7-1) breaks dependency 'linux<4.7'

Are there patches for kernel 4.7.x yet? or should we switch to linux-lts which sits nicely at 4.4.16-1 right now?

Check the arch wiki for catalyst:

You'll have to use one of the unofficial builds.

there is no old version of xorg-server(less than 1.18) in aur . so , I am getting this error

thanks @beaker23

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.
