I once asked this question but does anyone using this package?
I'm thinking about disowning it

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-06-04 13:20

updated to 15.5-1 - AKA "nothing interesting":
- it doesn't support xserver 1.17
- looks older than ubuntu vivid driver which we are using ie in catalyst-test@AUR
- i've added initial support for 4.1 kernel (using kolasa's patch, tested on 4.1rc5)
- rel notes: http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst15-5LINReleaseNotes.aspx

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-05-04 19:22

14.12-3:
- 4.0 kernel support (thanks to kolasa for patch)

Vi0L0 commented on 2015-03-08 13:33

14.12-2:
- using kolasa's patch to cover 3.19 kernel support

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-10-03 20:54

updated to 14.9-1:
- official, stable release
http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMDCatalyst14-9LINReleaseNotes.aspx

- it doesn't support xserver 1.16

- I added my fresh patch for kernel 3.17 rc6.
Notes about the patch:
1. it probably wont work on 3.17 kernels older than rc6 because I don't know how to tell preprocessor about rc version :P
2. im unable to test resume/suspend
3. im not the developer, just pressing random keys :P so the patch could be less/more noobish :-)

14.4-21: added dirty GPL-licensing solution - fglrx_gpl_symbol.patch - workaround for compilation error for i686 on 3.16.1 kernel

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-05-25 11:34

updated to 14.4-20 (catalyst 14.4 rev2):
- which brings some fixes for Witcher 2

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-04-28 20:32

updated to 14.4-10, catalyst 14.4 stable:
- xserver 1.15 support
(gotjazz wrote: little warning though - if you use xbmc, get sdl-nobackingstore from the AUR or you'll have tearing during video playback with xorg 1.15)
- many fixes here and there

Vi0L0 commented on 2014-04-05 11:25

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-11-18 19:36

silent update, no pkgrel bump:
- thanks to zoopp and his referer we no longer have to download installer manually :)

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-11-17 19:55

amd's site is not allowing direct download anymore...
read the top of PKGBUILD for instructions.

13.4-16:
- added workaround to bring support of kernel 3.12, by Krzysztof Kolasa

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-10-27 18:36

upgraded to 13.4-15:
- added staticlibs and libtool to the options and it fixed the whole libfglrx_ip.a bug
- the package is a lot bigger because I added !strip to the options, it's leaving symbols in the libraries so the package (and libs themselves) are bigger - but it could be useful, especially in some debugging

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-08-03 13:52

updated to 13.4-13 :
- switching to 3.10 kernel patch of Emil Karlson from gentoo which is genereting correct proc entries

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-07-07 19:26

updated to 13.4-5:
- using kolasa' workaround to bring 3.10 kernel support

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-05-21 15:57

- fixes efi support and so ttys bug (thanks to Krzysztof Kolasa :: https://github.com/kolasa)

package has been once again updated, but silently, no pkgrel bump
because AMD has changed files that don't belong to this package, only catalyst-utils/total*

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-02-14 12:03

as of state: this will probably never work properly with systemd,
but should stay until sysvinit isn't dead

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-02-14 11:45

After reading last www entries i was thinking about removing this pkg...
But still i had some hope and looks like somethings going on with sysvinit, ie today stativ has added sysvinit-scripts package to the AUR

My proposal: let's wait :>

Unia commented on 2013-02-13 22:16

Hey Vi0L0,

What's the state of Catalyst-daemon, now that we have completely switched to systemd? Just wondering, because the Wiki still has information on it but currently we can't use it.

Vi0L0 commented on 2013-01-18 14:50

updated to 13.1-1:
- changelog is here: http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst131ProprietaryLinuxGraphicsDriverReleaseNotes.aspx
- i've added "testing" support for 3.8 kernel (through own patch)

Vi0L0 commented on 2012-08-16 20:05

updated to 12.8:
- lots of fixes, my desktop feels fast again

BTW catalyst-daemon does not support systemd atm, i will work on it when i will get some free time

Vi0L0 commented on 2012-07-14 19:56

update:
12.6-2 should work fine with glibc 2.16.0-2 and kernel 3.5

Vi0L0 commented on 2012-06-16 12:56

updated to 12.4-6:
got now nice clean patch for 3.4 support on both architectures :)

thx to 3V0LU710N for finding it, and Sebastian Siebert from OpenSUSE for a patch

Vi0L0 commented on 2012-06-10 19:31

should now work also on i686 with kernel 3.4

Vi0L0 commented on 2012-06-03 21:58

updated to 12.4-3:
- support of 3.4 kernel is now provided by other patch found here: http://devgurus.amd.com/thread/159241
clean and kinda official :)

ViOLO: I'm sorry. Thanks for pointing it out! :)

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-03-17 02:08

@mihneadb: please read toffyrn comment and my answer to it - 4th comment under this one

Anonymous comment on 2011-03-16 20:41

please add kernel headers as dependency.

thanks!

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-02-22 20:14

another silent update:
no_bkl.patch will be added when kernel's # CONFIG_BKL is not set
Removing BKL (Big Kernel Lock) is safe move in 2.6.38 kernel (tested on rc5 and rc6).

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-02-22 20:13

another silent update:
no_bkl.patch will be added when kernel's # CONFIG_BKL is not set
Removing BKL (Big Kernel Lock) is save in 2.6.38 kernel (tested on rc5 and rc6).

Vi0L0 commented on 2011-02-10 17:51

Silent update.
I didn't like the way how ati's code was cluttering PKGBUILDs or catalyst_build_module scripts, so i turned this code into ati_make.sh file and import it's content with . (source)
New way also fits to ati license better... ;P
Oh and now all AUR catalyst's packages have 2.6.38 patch so they support 38 rc3, rc4 and probably newer rcs (no rc1, rc2 support, but hey rc3 and rc4 are much better).
Change is mainly cosmetical, there's no need to update packages.

Vi0L0 commented on 2010-09-29 14:24

@toffyrn: well, maybe yes, but i decided to not add it, since this solution is targeted more likely for multi-kernels systems, and not everybody is using stock kernel26.

Instead there's a info in post install/upgrade which is telling that you need kernel's headers

toffyrn commented on 2010-09-29 13:41

Perhaps kernel headers should be added to dependencies? Without it build fails...
