18.50 is AMDGPU-PRO which is totally different. As for 15.12, it's already shipping in catalyst-test.

But since it requires some tinkering for dx11 cards to be working, Vi0L0 probably didn't want to get his hands dirty.

Will you have a plan to add Crimson Edition driver to AUR? Between HD5000 series and R9/R7 300 series can use version 15.12 and after r9/r7 300 series can use version 18.50.

received an error when trying to install "error: target not found: linux<4.17 ", even though my kernel version is 4.14.56-1-lts. I am guessing it doesn't like the long term support version?

Anyone installed successfully recently? Even without installing gnome/xorg, I always get an unresolvable conflict between libglvn and catalyst-libgl. If I install xorg and gnome (for example) I get more conflicts because it pulls wayland. Does anybody have a solution for that? Would be enough if you point me in the right direction.

Yes, it will work once you will bump dependencies to linux<4.16 Sorry for no update, but I'm still missing time, hopefully will find some on weekend.

any support for kernel 4.15?

@martadinata666 thanks, i used your PKGBUILD to create package which I then put to xorg repositories, like: [xorg117] Server =

in case of libxfont dependency, i modified from libxfont2 official one, in case someone need it ;)

@ViOLO sorry i did not mention that i used the right catalyst driver HD234. I initialy post on catalyst package, but i used the right one.

It seems that i have the same problem as described in but the workaround seems tricky.

I'm not sure if this card is supported by other linux ditribution, I love Arch so for now i will keep the radeon driver...

Thanks for all.

@ian57: check description of this package: Radeons HD 2 3 4 xxx ARE NOT SUPPORTED.

Newer catalyst doesn't support pre-GCN architectures at all :(. You can still get legacy catalyst:

But I'm unable to actually support it well because I'm not owning such card. Last time when I was able to patch legacy fglrx module and compile it succesfully - it gave blank screen for the users :(.

However check out last comment of Thormme since its giving some hope, at:
